The A/C system on the TCs attempt to keep the passenger cabin temperature at the setting set on the A/C controller. For example, if you set the unit on Automatic when start out in the morning and it is cool outside, depending on the temperature that you select on the A/C controller, the air flow will be warm and directed at the floor, with a little escaping to the window defrost outlet. If you drive until it warms-up outside, the system will change over to air conditioning and the air flow will come out at the panel vents. As you drive during the day, if it gets cool outside, the system will automatically switch over to heat, thusly the air flow will go to the floor. These system also sometimes exhibit what some might call moments of indecision. The system sips air from outside the car and from inside the car, simultaneously, and trys to balance these temperatures against the value that the driver has sets at the control unit. On some TCs, at the medium range temperature settings, they tend to exhibit the mode of operation that you describe in your post. I don't use the automatic setting feature that often. I typically set the the controller for either Vent, A/C, or Heat and adjust the temperature.

Go to Auto Zone and buy the switch for less than $30.00. It is easy to change. It is mounted under the dash at the lower end of the steering column. Remove the cowlings and covers, a few screws, and the switch will be the white box with the plug with lots of wires. Be careful mounting it back because it is easy to not get the pin in the slot correctly and when it is not aligned the screw tabs on the switch will break when you tighten the screws. Do not force the switch onto the steering column, if it doesn't sit properly, it's out of alignment.
#597 of 1117 Air Bag Light
May 13, 2007 (10:29 am)
On my 2003 Lincoln Town Car, whenever I'm driving in heavy rain for a long period of time, like on the turnpike, my air bag light comes on a stays on. Once I stop for the night and start again in the morning the light is off. I recently had the car washed in a high pressure touchless car wash and the light came on, but did not come on the next morning when I left for work. I had the Lincoln dealership check it but of course they found nothing wrong and said I needed to come in when the light was actually on. I wondered if anyone had a similar problem.

About $60.00 if all that is required is a new key ignition switch.
#601 of 1117 Loss of power.
May 29, 2007 (6:59 pm)
While driving 70 mph on cruise control I began to lose power down to 40 mph. I finally got it back up to 70 mph. Now when I accelerate it boggs down. I can accelerate slow. I replaced the fuel filter, checked fuel pressure (30 psi) and replaced all four cat-converters. Still have problem.

The Mass Air Sensor, located near the air filter, may need either replacing or careful cleaning. After ours was changed, we didn't lose power anymore and was able to go back to Regular grade gas.
