Question about Ford Crown Victoria

2 Answers

I bought a 2004 Crown Vic P71 a month ago. Runs great and A/C was working. Now temp control (manual version) won't switch to cold. I suspect it is the blender door. Is this controlled by a cable on this manual temp control, or is it by electric motor? Hoping not to have to remove dash as A/C normally works great.

Hi

If the climate control's heat/cold knob is not adjusting to the desired temperature then your temperature control knob is probably worn, a new climate control unit may be needed. However there's one cable going from the temperature knob down to the air-mix door. Then a second cable from there out to the water valve in the engine compartment. You need to adjust both cables. The piece under the dash is the connector between the blend door and the actual heater control valve.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Thank you for contacting fixya.com

It should be controlled by a motor. Other than checking the wires for problems you may have to open up the dashboard to get all of the components to inspect the blender door. It may just be a weak or bad motor or it may just need tighten things up. It can also be a physical problem or the door may not open correctly. You may just need to reattach it.

    other than the wiring you may have to check the relay. The relay should be located at the fuse panel.

Hello? Emission problem 1994 crown vic here...


I owned one of these. There is a groove under the butterfly horn of the throttle. There are 8 bolts and a $10 gasket. Often the EGR passage is clogged and it throws off the calibrations and when you clean this groove the engine will run much better.

I would take it out right away, you don't want to be charged for impersonating a police officer. There is no reason to keep it and if you do you will have to answer why every time you turn around and get stopped.

Check the operation of the temperature control actuator. It is located on the top of the heater case. If it doesn't move when adjusting the temp. the actuator is probably bad. It is no an easy task to replace. The case hase to be lowered to get to it.

1996 Crown Vic, Valve noise under heavy acceleration


No use what's in there, but have the engine de-carboned by a Ford dealer, or remove the octane adjust shorting bar located near the ignition module (retards timing 2 degrees), this will in most cases cure the issue unless there is allot of carbon in the cylinders. There are also methods of ing this de-carbon procedure at home, check on the internet for tips.
