In 1998 lincoln AC works fine but not heat in winter. Blows cold when turned on


Asked by Jan 22, 2014 at 12:01 PM about the 1998 Lincoln Continental 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Fan blows cold air when AC turned on for heat.

1 Answer


Sounds like the vacuum operation control needs to be replaced. It is a vacuum panel that the "cool to hot", "dash-feet-panel-windshield" and fan speed control knobs are attached to in the dashboard. Ford had issues with these for many years.
