Hi Micheal, I'm having this problem with different temperatures comming from pass and driver side. Cold air from passenger side and hot air from driver side when trying to drive with the a/c on. I'm pretty sure it's the DCCV that needs to be replaced after reading so much about it, but my question is, is the dual climate control valve the same as the dual coolant control valve the same as the heater valve? are all 3 valves the same valve? I want to change the same valve that you changed on yours a couple of years back, so if you can send me the part number or exact name so that i can buy from the dealership that would be great. I have a 2002 Lincoln LS V6 3.0L. I tried asking the dealership for a dual climate control valve and they had no idea what it was because thats not what it is listed as in their system. Sorry for the long message, really in need of some help. Thanks

'04 LS, 54000 miles. Bought new.
A/C decides to start blowing warm air, then after a few minutes, blows cool air again. Been to dealer once. Found nothing. Happened to my wife this morning as she was driving to work, except that the system just continued to blow warm air.
As luck would have it the car needs to hit the highway this weekend for a 5 hour drive to a wedding. Hate to do wit without A/C
A quite reliable ride so far except that I have no faith that the transmission will get me to 100,000 miles without a major repair. Been back to dealer 3 times for harsh shifting. All 3 times they did something with the computer software but a temporary fix at best.
Car heads into the dealer tomorrow to see if they can figure anything out with the A/C.
Thanks for any help.

Could just be low on refrigerant - that's one of the symptoms. If not then it's either the control valve or the blend door.

Sounds like DCCV (dual climate control valve), common problem on these cars, just had mine replaced on my '05

Thanks for the input. Just got back from an almost 600 mile trip. Car was flawless and the A/C worked properly--most of the time. Only had 2 or 3 incidents of it blowing warm air and then for maybe 15-20 seconds before it returned to cooling.
My wife needs her car all week so I will try to get it into the dealership next week.
FWIW, cruised it at about 70mph + for the trip and averaged 27mpg. The car has the V6 engine.

There's a way to check the climate control but I can't recall exactly. Something with pushing buttons on the climate control system. Do a little internet searching.

Just had the same thing on my 2001. Started out as an intermittant problem now it's full time. Ran diag, by pressing off and floor button at the same time and then within 2 seconds press auto button. Counts up to 25 on one side and down on the other. Hard fail for 1947. Evaporator Discharge Air Temperature Sensor. On your back under driver side look up towards center box. Had one sensor high center with white sensor with two pin plug. Another sensor is 6 inches lower toward the driver seat. Swapped the two sensors by pulling straight out with some force. High sensor on mine is the evaporator sensor. Lower is driver side discharge. problem now with driver side temp. So from your description it sounds like the higher sensor is going bad. Cheap part from Ford! Let me know if this works for you.
