Electronic climate control strange behaveure (sable 1997)

The a/c acts in a very strange way, it starts sometimes with the ignition, if operating the a/c on auto or max it disengages the compressor after a while and directs the air to the floor, this may happen also when pressing any button on the unit even switching the radio on or blowing the horn, there is no fixed pattern for this behavior. can you help please.

Heater not work mercury sable 1997

Check the engine running temperature. If it's below normal then replace the thermostat.If that's working fine, then check the valve operation on the side of the heater matrix. Also check it's actuator cable or wiring and any motors and gearwheels in the case it uses climate control.
After that check any switch operation in the driver's console.

Intermittent operation, sometimes it starts fine, then it will act like low battery - battery is new and alternator is fine ie; charging system is full and active.

Take to Autozone or Oreillys for a starter draw test. Sometimes the starter will have a bad place and will not energize to spin the starter.
Another possibility is the Throttle Position Sensor which is located on the airhorn. This balances the fuel and spark systems for the gas pedal. When you start the engine it gives you the base idle and must work with the cold start system.

Electronic climate control has a mind of its own

the climate control head units go out in these cars with age. The steering wheel controls are probably losing conection. You can replace the turnsignal switch or gently bent the little copper prongs back up.

Driving car it just quit, will not start back

fuel pump relay behind plastic cover that is behind battery. there are 2 black relays ine is climate control and the other is fuel pump. the climate control will say klima on it. Bridge circuit 30(hot at all times) and circuit 87(consumer) with a fused wire and the vehicle should start if that is the problem. In all honesty it sounds like an ignition problem. I would remove the dist. cap if it is a cis. if it is electronic fuel inj. try wiggling the crank senser harnes and see if it starts. the early lh and hfm cars had major wireharness issues

2006 Lincoln Navigator. My driver side heated seat is flaking out. I turn it on after starting the vehicle and it comes on for about 20 seconds and then shuts off. If i push the button a second time it...

Electronics involved !
The climate control seat system is able to heat and cool the front seats. Each climate controlled seat is operated by push-buttons on the dual automatic temperature controller (EATC) located on the instrument panel. Each front seat temperature is then monitored and controlled by the dual climate control seat module (dual CCSM) located underneath the passenger front seat cushion.

Both the driver and front passenger climate controlled seats are independently controlled electronically by the dual climate controlled seat module (CCSM) mounted to the bottom of the passenger seat cushion. The climate controlled seat system only operates with the engine running, however, if using a diagnostic tool to command the dual CCSM, diagnostic testing can be carried out with the ignition switch key ON engine OFF (KOEO). The system receives power from central junction box (CJB) fuse 118 (30A) through circuit 1153 (RD/BK) feeding battery voltage into dual CCSM C3265b pins 1 and 24. If power is disconnected from either pin 1 or 24 of dual CCSM C3265b, only 1 seat will be disabled (pin 1 for driver seat, pin 24 for passenger seat), the other will remain operational. Since both climate controlled seats operate independently, if a fault occurs setting a DTC specific to either climate controlled seat, only the affected seat will be disabled by the module and the other will remain operational.

Sorry , but it would be best for you to take it to the dealer or someother qualified repair shop.
