after the test do you press defrost to exit? does it still display same codes after erasing?

when it goes through the self test can you hear the air duct doors moving?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I don't know how to erase the codes unless that is what the defrost button does. When I started the test in hit tie defrost button and it displayed the aforementioned codes. Which was less by one code "2798"
I am not sure if I heard all of the actuators but certainly heard something.i can check again tomorrow when I get home.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Sent from my from my phone. Sorry for the miss spelling and odd extra words.
Lincoln Mechanic: Cesar Jimenez,
 replied 4 months ago

yes the DEFROST button erases all codes then the climate control turns off.

ok no problem

thats a good sign that the actuators are working.

After I erased and run the test and I get 1263, 1242, 1262 and only sometimes do I get the 2798. As far as sounds inherana clicking noise at the first of the test on passenger side. And a different noise around middle of the dash.

Hello, do you need more help with this concern? You are getting 4 digits codes on the EATC display? What engine is in the LS?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
4 four codes as listed above. It is the 3.9L.
Lincoln Mechanic: HDGene, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago
Ok the 2798 code is for the dual coolant control valve under the hood those are a common problem.if it hasn't already been replaced. If it pops up a code again for it. It should be replaced and part of the no a.c. problem. The 3 other codes are flagging faults for blend doors behind the dash for the air inlet/refresh door. The defrost door and the panel door. If you can patient I'll attach the pinpoint test C for those codes. I'm at work for the day and can't attach that while 24 step test via the phone until later today. But In the mean time just check the basics.fuses for the a.c. system. Any signs of bad connections behind the dash. This may come down to a control head issue

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have no clue where to find that connector. I am guessing the one off the back of the head unit?
Lincoln Mechanic: HDGene, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

Yes you will be testing the circuit from the climate control panel to the blend door actuators.
