I have a 2002 3-litre v6 a4 cab engine management

engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor

A code P0118 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • A bad connection at the sensor
  • An open in the ground circuit between the ECT sensor and the PCM
  • A short in the voltage feed between the sensor and the PCM
  • A bad PCM (less likely)
  • A bad temperature sensor (shorted internally)

My AC compressor on a 99 V6 Cougar does not stay on for more than 3 seconds at a time. The charge is ok but the compressor kicks out 2-3 sec after it starts. I think it is the capacitor????

no its not the capacitor.
put more freon in it untill it stops cycling on and off.
thats the low pressure switch keeping the comp from killing it self on the suchion side.

it needs more freon .

Do not drive the car. yes high temperature will come on if there is little oil in the box, they are expensive, fix the leak test the gearbox and hope it still works  D

Automatic temperature control system

I am not sure I understand your question. When the control head is turned off, the system goes to defrost mode (failsafe by design) and the blower should be off. If the blower is at high speed when the control is in off, you have a faulty blower speed control module (power mosfet is probably shorted).
