Model: Crown Vitoria
Country of Origin: United States
System is stuck on heat. System is full & cooling, just can't adjust the temp setting. I know the Town Car had similar problem with door. Does the Crown Vic have the same problem for this year model? If it's the blender door motor etc do you have to pull the dash like the Town Car? If it's the temp switch do you still have to pull the dash? Thanks!
Things to check first is the compressor running when the ac is turned on? is there heat blending in with the cold air from the evap? can you hear the doors change position? Feel the suction line from the evap to the compressor and make sure it's cold.. I don't have the information here on the broken blend door, but I believe it's a bear to fix unless you can epoxy it from behind the glove box?? as far as the controls, it's not a dash removal job for that, but check the other things first until someone who knows those cars comes along..Hope this helps..
Freedoms just another word for nothing left to lose
Does this thing have a water valve that can stick? It happened with my 1985 Caprice. Took a while to figure that one out.

I have had a lot of experience with the Lincoln Town Cars as a courier service next to a previous job had about 23 of them. They are very well known for evaporator leaks and have blend door problems. The gear on the end of the motor strips off as it is plastic on plastic. They got better on the later model cars but they are still a PITA to change. You will need to pull most, if not all of the dash and steering column to get in there and get it out. Before you jump into that make sure everything else is ok. Compressor working? Lines feel cool? Just ensure everything is working before you tear into that thing.
System is full & cooling. I knew the Town Car had blender door problems. I was curious if the Crown Vic was the same. I almost positive it's the blender door if not the temp control switch. Adam: I guess you have to pull the dash to fix the door like the Town Cars? Is it possible to manually get the door over to cool without pulling the dash? Thanks!
I had a deteriorated hard plastic vacuum line near dryer that let the heater valve near engine block stay open so hot water was being piped into the passenger compartment all the time. With low refrigerant, all I got was heat.
In most cases you cannot get the door to move manually because the motor in the blend door actuator has frozen up or the gear has broken and jammed. I show that is calls for almost 6.0 hours of labor to replace that thing so I would say it warrants pulling the dash, steering column and everything in between. There really is no way to even get to it aside taking the dash apart to try to move it manually.
HI I NEED HELP ASAP ....... I HAVE A 2006 CROWN VICTORIA LX ... AUTO CLAMATE CONTROL
I WAS NOT GEETING NO HEAT .... BUT GETING ICE COLD A/C ...... CHANGED THE BLEND DOOR ... FOUND THAT IT NEEDED REPLACING
NOW IT WORKS ..... BUT WHEN I PUT IT TO COLD IT STAYS THERE AND WONT COME BACK TO HOT ... ANY IDER
As I recall, Ford had a TSB on this issue using some kind of poor plastic in the blend door in this era that would bind. Most used an evaporator box, not sure about yours, but the system had to be recovered, evaporator box removed to replace that factory defective part.
6.0 hours may be correct for a brand new vehicle and you do this everyday. But if you don't in a 17 year old vehicle with super brittle plastic parts, severely corroded bolts and fittings, may take a couple of minutes longer.
