Welcome to just answer.com. I'm here to help you and your 100% satisfaction is my goal.

Very commonly this is caused by a faulty blend door actuator Perform the self test on the EATC control head. If there are any memory codes still in the system, the system will not function as it should unless the codes are cleared. To enter the self-test, press the OFF and FLOOR buttons simultaneously and then press the AUTOMATIC button within two seconds. The display will show a dashed line in the center of the display window. The test may run as long as 30 seconds. Record all DTCs displayed. To exit self-test and clear all DTCs, press F-Defrost button. The vacuum fluorescent display window will show 888 and all function symbols for one second. Then, the EATC system will turn OFF display blank and all DTCs will be cleared,

Move the temperature control and look and listen for movement of the Blend Door Actuator. If the actuator doesn't move consistantly, replace it. If the actuator moves and the temperature doesn't change consistantly, look for a broken or stuck blend door.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
