Heating Air Conditioning issue

edited January 2019 in Lincoln
A couple years ago I replaced the Blend Door Actuator due to the air not switching from floor, vents, or defrost. It worked perfectly.
Now however while using the A/C sometimes it takes a little while for the A/C to kick in while the air stays hot unless I decrease the temperature to under 70 degrees. Works right away at 60 degrees.
When in the Duel mode for passenger and drivers side, when I turn down the heat or Air Conditioning on the drivers side it affects the passenger side instead. I tried to turn down the passenger side to see if it would effect the drivers side but it had no change. My wife like the temperature warmer on her side, passenger, while I prefer the drivers side cooler for me. Any thoughts?

    I had to pay a lot of money to get my aircon fixed, but it's so much better when you have it.

    The other blend doors are not working properly. Because of the all the stuff that has to taken off and apart on the driver/passenger A/C control system, when one of my blend doors goes bad, I just replace then all.

    The first thing that I would need to figure out is are you describing one problem, or more than one. Either way the next step would be to pick a problem that I can confirm and test to prove what exactly is going on. You have an automatic system, in order for it to try and control the temperature that you are selecting on the dash it needs to know the actual temperature inside the cabin. When you select 60f it commands max cold and ignores the actual cabin temperature so that leads me to question if the system is able to measure the cabin temperature accurately or not.

    This is where the information can be a red herring. I would have to put this part of the description aside and concentrate on the first half and then depending on what I found, and possibly after repairing that first problem, would I look into this part and then only if necessary.
