SOURCE: 1997 lincoln town car 4.6 with a p0430 fault code

I will make an assumption here, we know what the root word means. This code was extracted from the computer by? What this is telling you one of 2 things: The Bank 2 oxygen sensor down stream of the catalytic converter (there are 2 converters, one for each bank of cylinders on the 4.6ltr engine) is bad and/or that the Bank 2 catalytic converter is no longer doing the job it was designed to do. Simply, Catalysts wear out. They are good for approx 100,000 miles (as required by Federal Law). Again, I assume that the reason the intake manifold was replaced was because it had a crack in one, or more, of the runners? (part that feeds the head of a manifold). It may have taken a while to find this as being the cause of why the car running incorrectly, maybe rough. This means, that during the time the car was being driven with the problem, the amount of unburned, or not within spec exhaust gases, coming off the side of the engine affected by the intake issue was higher than normal. This out of balance level of exhaust gases were being dumped into the converter on that side of the engine, thus causing the converter to have to run hotter, work harder, or even at the time the gas was being processed through, causing deposits to be formed in the converter, thus shortening it's life span. The Bank 1 side of the engine, apparently, did not have the issue and it's catalytic converter's life was not affected. I hope this makes sense to you.

The routing schematic for the serpentine belt is usually found on the fan shroud. But, if yours is missing you may contact your local lincoln dealer to see if they have the decal for that vehical or that engine.

When heat is on it blow hot ondrivers side and cold on ppassenger side.


Do you hear any clicking sounds coming from behind the instrument panel ? Electrically controlled actuators move temp . blend doors and they wear out .Plastic gears etc..
Electronic Automatic Temperature Control System
The electronic automatic temperature control (EATC) system operation is determined by the settings on the EATC module. The EATC system automatically maintains a selected temperature for vehicle interior comfort, including capabilities to maintain separate temperature settings for the driver and front passenger. The electronic temperature control capabilities are achieved by splitting the air distribution system internally and utilizing 2 individually operated temperature blend doors. The EATC system is composed of the EATC module, automatic temperature control (ATC) solenoid and manifold, blower motor speed control, 4 vacuum control motors, 2 temperature blend door actuators, in-car temperature sensor, ambient air temperature sensor and solar amplifier (sunload sensor) to control the various functions. Do you know about DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ?

The electronic automatic temperature control (EATC) system must be diagnosed by first retrieving any DTCs, if present.
  • An on-demand (hard fault) DTC indicates that the fault is currently present. An on-demand DTC suggests a wiring fault, disconnected connector or component failure.
  • A continuous (intermittent) DTC alone (corresponding on-demand DTC is not present) indicates that the fault is an intermittent condition and may not be currently present. A continuous only DTC suggests a poor wiring connection, loose pin or terminal or intermittent component failure.
On-demand (hard fault) or continuous (intermittent fault) DTCs can be retrieved using a diagnostic tool. If using a diagnostic tool, refer to the diagnostic tool operating manual.
On-demand DTCs can also be retrieved by carrying out the Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module On-Demand Self Test. To retrieve and/or clear continuous DTCs carry out the Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module - Retrieve Continuous DTCs procedure. Always carry out the Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module On-Demand Self Test before retrieving continuous DTCs.
If no DTCs are present, GO to Symptom Chart for the appropriate diagnostic action.

DTC EATC DTC Displayed Notes Description Action to Take B2266 2266 N/A LH Blend Door Failure or Short Go To Pinpoint Test A . B2267 2267 EATC Only RH Blend Door Failure or Short Go To Pinpoint Test A .
  • The dual temperature control is inoperative/does not operate correctly - Dual Zone EATC
  • Temperature blend door/actuator broken/binding
  • EATC module
  • CHECK the temperature blend doors/actuators for a binding or broken condition. If no condition is found, INSTALL a new EATC module. REFER to Section 412-01 . TEST the system for normal

Y is my lincon towncar gas gauge reading c5


A "C" code is a chassis code, but I cannot find out exactly what that one means. Take the car to your local auto parts store and have them run a free diagnostic test on your OBD-2 on-board diagnostic computer and tell you exactly what the problem is.

Eatc code 024 025 97 tc


Codes 025 and 024 mean blend door failure. So it's either stuck of the broken, or the actuator isn't working.

I have changed the radiator, heater core and the thermostat in my 1997 ford F150 but I am still blowing out cold air


THE TEMPERATURE BLEND DOOR STUCK OR BLEND DOOR ACTUATOR MOTOR FAULTY,YOU NEED TO DO A EATC DIAGNOSTIC TEST TO GET FAULT CODE SEE WHY YOU ARE NOT GETTING HEAT.TO DO A DIAGNOSTIC TEST FIRST WARM ENGINE UNTIL IT GET 120 DEGREES.WITH ENGINE OFF IGNITION SWITCH ON SIMULTANEOUSLY PRESS OFF AND FLOOR BUTTON THEN WITHIN 2 SECONDS PRESS AUTOMATIC BUTTON SELF TEST TAKE UP 20 SECONDS INDICATING BY BLANK DISPLAY WINDOW ON THE EATC MODULE. IF DISPLAY IS BLANK FOR MORE THAN 20 SECONDS OR IF CODE 888 IS DISPLAYED GO TO EATC SYSTEM TEST UNDER TESTING IF NO CODES ARE DISPLAYED AND SYSTEM IS NOT OPERATING PROPERLY GO TO SYMPTOM DIAGNOSIS IF CODES DISPLAY RECORD CODES. BEFORE TURNING IGNITION OFF EXIT SELF DIAGNOSTIC.BY PRESSING DEFROST BUTTON EXIT THE SELF DIAGNOSTIC PRESS BLUE BUTTON. IF ALL FAIL LET A GARAGE CHECK IT OUT.BUT ALSO CHECK COOLANT SYSTEM IF COOLANT SYSTEM VERY LOW YOU HAVE NO HEAT PROBLEMS.

Heat and aircondition.My heat and air only work on number 5


Sounds like a "fan motor speed controller" or FMSC.
Either that module has gone out...or we're not getting the signal from the control panel sometimes called the EATC.

Lincoln has an EATC (for electronic air temp control)...GMC has something similar.
There is a way to run a diagnostic test of the EATC but am having trouble finding it for GM models.

If EATC test is done and fails...it will tell you it failed and would need replacing.
If EATC passes...it will tell you it passed and the fan motor speed controller would be at fault.

Usually, when a speed controller fails, the blower motor either doesn't turn OR it runs full blast.
Both parts EATC and the FMSC are expensive.
Since yours is running full blast...at least its providing air.
I'd try to run a diagnostic check to be for sure and maybe your parts might be less expensive and available at your local parts store.

Hope this helps...

Heater displays everything but you cannot turn anything on ac will not turn on neither will the heat the buttons will not even light up please help


From the equipment description, I take this to be a EATC ( Electronic Automatic Temperature Control ) system.

You can try to run the EATC diagnostic test & recalibrate ( once you have confirmed it is not a fuse )

Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module On-Demand Self-Test The EATC module on-demand self-test will retrieve on-demand (hard fault) DTCs only, it will not retrieve continuous DTCs. Continuous DTCs can be cleared when exiting the EATC module on-demand self-test. Make sure to retrieve continuous DTCs by carrying out the Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module - Retrieve Continuous DTCs procedure before clearing any continuous DTCs.


•The EATC module on-demand self-test will not detect concerns associated with data link messages like engine coolant temperature or vehicle speed signals. A diagnostic tool must be used to retrieve these concerns.
•The EATC module on-demand self-test will detect concerns in the system control functions and will display on-demand (hard fault) DTCs for concerns that are present during the self-test. The vehicle interior temperature should be between 4°-38°C (40°-100°F) when performing the self-test. If the temperatures are not within the specified ranges, false DTCs may be displayed.
•The self-test can be initiated after cycling the ignition switch from OFF to ON. Normal operation of the climate control system stops when the self-test is activated.
•To enter the self-test, press the OFF and DEFROST buttons simultaneously and release, then press the AUTO button within 2 seconds . The display will show a flashing blower icon for 20 seconds , after which all vacuum fluorescent segments will be displayed if there are no on-demand DTCs present. If DTCs are present the EATC module will display "00 00" and then on-demand DTCs. Record all DTCs displayed.
•If any DTCs appear during the self-test, carry out the diagnostic procedure. Refer to the Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module Diagnostic Trouble Code Index and follow the ACTION for each DTC given. See: Diagnostic Trouble Code Descriptions
•If a condition exists but no DTCs appear during the self-test, GO to Symptom Chart Condition: The EATC System Is Inoperative, Intermittent or Incorrect Operation. See: Symptom Related Diagnostic Procedures
•To exit the self-test and retain all DTCs, press any button except DEFROST. The EATC module will exit the self-test and retain all DTCs.
•To exit the self-test and clear all DTCs, press the DEFROST button. The EATC module will exit the self-test and all DTCs will be cleared.
•Always exit the self-test before powering the system down (system turned OFF). Once the self-test is exited, the ignition switch must remain ON for at least 30 seconds to allow the door actuators to automatically recalibrate.
•Continuous DTCs will be deleted after 80 ignition switch ON cycles after the intermittent fault occurs.

Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module - Retrieve Continuous DTCs
The EATC module will retrieve only continuous (intermittent and hard) DTCs when carrying out this procedure.


•Retrieval of continuous DTCs can be initiated after cycling the ignition switch from OFF to ON. Normal operation of the climate control system stops when retrieving continuous DTCs.
•To retrieve continuous DTCs, press the OFF and DEFROST buttons simultaneously and release, then press the RECIRC button within 2 seconds . All vacuum fluorescent segments will be displayed if there are no continuous DTCs present. Continuous DTCs are indicated by the presence of the degrees Celsius symbol (°C) on the EATC module display. Record all DTCs displayed.
•If any DTCs appear, carry out the diagnostic procedure. Refer to the Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module Diagnostic Trouble Code Index and follow the ACTION for each DTC given. See: Diagnostic Trouble Code Descriptions
•If a condition exists but no DTCs appear, GO to Symptom Chart Condition: The EATC System Is Inoperative, Intermittent or Incorrect Operation. See: Symptom Related Diagnostic Procedures
•To exit and retain all continuous DTCs, press any button except DEFROST. The EATC module will exit the retrieved continuous DTCs mode and retain all continuous DTCs.
•To exit and clear all continuous DTCs, press the DEFROST button. The EATC module will exit the retrieve continuous DTCs mode and all continuous DTCs will be cleared.
•Always exit the procedure before powering the system down (system turned OFF). Once the procedure is exited, the ignition switch must remain ON for at least 30 seconds to allow the door actuators to automatically recalibrate.
•Continuous DTCs will be deleted after 80 ignition switch ON cycles after the intermittent fault occurs.

Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (EATC) Module and Electronic Manual Temperature Control (EMTC) Module Cold Boot Process The purpose of the cold boot process is to allow the EATC or EMTC module to re-initialize and calibrate the door actuators. To carry out the cold boot process, follow the steps below.

1.Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
2.Disconnect the EATC or EMTC module electrical connectors.
3.Wait one minute .
4.Connect the EATC or EMTC module electrical connectors.
5.Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
6.Select any position except OFF on the EATC or EMTC module. The EATC or EMTC module will now initialize and calibrate the mode doors. Calibration of the mode doors will take approximately 30 seconds .

Heater blows air but does not get hot.


your thermostat stuck open.are your temperature blend door actuator is not working due to problems in the eatc module or the actuator is faulty.the car inside temperature sensor could be bad.by this being electronic climate control system.this is a dealership fix.you need diagnostic equipment to trouble shoot the system.
