was the controller new or used?
My original switch went dead. I put a used one in and it had the problem I am asking about. I then put another used one that has exact same problem
I did say to disconnect the actuator and leave it connected to see if it works first. when you said you switched the manual control module, junk yard?
you have to select direction on manual, is this auto climate control?
the control module was junkyard. then a second from junkyard with exact same symtoms.
you might have changed the wrong actuator. there is one for the floor/defrost . many times these actuators are the same for different functions
let me see if I can find a better description of where it is.
I was able to manually control what this actuator controls and it was changing the airflow from defrost to front panel. I also watched the actuator when I switched from a/c to defrost and it was turning. There is a similar looking actuator a few inches below the one I replaced. I'm not sure what it does.
I think this will help me find my problem.
great. some times ford is not so clear on location. They have also changed actuator design and location on a few models, hard to keep up. Clearing the dtc's or trouble codes can be done with a scanner or by disconnecting the battery.
having trouble opening the workshop manual sent.
here is the cold reboot procedure.
Not allowed to copy ford site so i find else where and verify.
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.
they kind of mix the auto climate or eatc and the emtc
Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position. Disconnect the EATC or EMTC module electrical connectors. Wait one minute . Connect the EATC or EMTC module electrical connectors. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. 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 .
