Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Taurus yourself? What have you tried so far?

I can say for certain the function (defrost, heat, dash vent ) actuator moves, I can hear it. Temp? Not sure.

ok, dont worry about the modes. you definitely should be able to hear the temp actuator. compare it to the driver side

Before I installed the new actautor that is very accessable behind the glove box I moved the female rotating plug the actuator fits into. There was no change in temp on passenger side in heat, dash vent, defrost.
I will be back in a sec. I will compare driver vs passenger side
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Driver side I can hear a faint mechanical noise when the digital readout is down in the 60 degree range, Very faint. Nothing on passenger side. But I hearing is bad.

ok. you need to remove the actuators connector and check for voltage

okay. There are 5 pins there. I have a good multi meter. With a plastic actuator case what pins do I check or should I just see if the actuator works when energized?

That diagram is good. It is night here and the car is parked out side. If I want to check the voltage out in the morning will I have to pay for a new session?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
