Question about 2006 Lincoln LS V8
Try disconnecting the positive cable to the battery. Next morning hook it back up and the blender door to the heater will have had time to reset its self. This is a temporary fix, If you turn on the heat again you may not be able to turn the a/c back on. But this will do till you can have the actuator replaced. That means removing the dash. I HAVE BEEN USING THIS PROCUDRE FOR OVER A YEAR. Many problems can be fixed just by taking away the power source and let the car reset it's self!!

You also could have air in your coolant system. You can't just add coolant on these models after you drain the system or let it run low on coolant. The degas bottles on these models also have a flaw, where they crack along a seam. Sometimes coolant will leak, sometimes not, depending on how high the crack is on the bottle. But what it is guaranteed to do is allow air into your system, which can cause havoc with overheating (air surrounds the thermostat so it doesn't open) and keep coolant from flowing, particularly through the highest point in the system: the heater core. There is a heater core bleeder valve attached to a line near the top of the degas bottle (next to the expension line up top) with a plastic, flathead srewdriver face. Turn the heat on high and run the system at idle for 5 minutes. Then open the valve and keep it open until a steady stream of coolant comes out. (It's like bleeding your brakes.) That will clear any air from the system and at least give you peace of mind that this is not your problem. Then run the motor at 2000 rpms, with the heat still on high, for about 5 minutes or until hot air starts coming out. Release the bleeder valve again until a steady stream comes out. Then let the system cool and check your coolant level and fill as needed. I'd pull the degas bottle and inspect it...should have been a recall.

It is probably the (DCCV) Dual climate control valve. It is located RT front of engine with heater hoses and wires goin to it. I ordered one from Rockauto.com for about a $100.00 i think. It is pretty easy to change and I found out when mine went out that it was a very common problem with these cars. When mine quit it started the same as you are describing for a while then it only would blow hot air and it blew the a/c compressor fuse. The DCCV is a dual cylinder valve and i beleive that they get stuck open and short out. If you have any more questions or need more information let me know.

I recently had the same problem with my ls. I had to remove the drivers side front tire and behind the tire arm there is the low connector valve that is attached to the compressor- take off the tiny cap and connect the can of refrigerant. Kragen has cans with the valve attached- just follow directions- My air works perfectly now- and it cost under $25 to repair it!

there are many thing beside a fuse, it may be low on freon or a bad low preasure switch and more ,you are right to start withthe fuses, then have the freon checked to make sure there enough in the system,you may have a leak. the fuse is a 10 amp fuse and its located in the aux fuse box in location F1-O1, here a diagram to help you, this fuse box should be under the hood, sometimes they put them under the dash on the pass/side.hope this helps.
