You need to replace the DCCV, the exact thing happen to my LS. Dont take it to the dealer, they will charge you an arm and a leg. It is easy to repair and will cost you less.

Thanks for the response Izze, I have checked around at alot of dealers however they dont seem to call this DCCV by that name I think they said it was called a Heater Control Valve, Which I am assuming is the same thing, because I di picture comparisons and it showed the same picture. As for replacing it on my own, im not too mechanically inclined when it comes to cars Im sorry to say I wont take it to the dealers, however I am hoping that maybe I can find a trustworthy mechanic who can do it for me.

DCCV and heater control valve are the same thing, that's probably why your fuse blew. When my DCCV failed, it blew the fuse also.
#138 of 155 Same issue with AC
Jul 07, 2011 (9:10 am)
Ok, so I've been trying to get this fixed for a while now, but got a little confusion now. Had the issue earlier this year that my 04 V8 LS wasn't blowing hot air. After all the forums I ended up changing the DCCV and it fixed the problem. Now the AC only works some of the time. Other times it blows extremely hot air. Doesn't matter what the temp is set on. And it just seems to randomly change, when you change the temp 1 degree, or just whenever you start the car. After running the self diagnoses again, the code it saying bad blend door actuator. Here is where the confusion is coming in. I have read so many of these forums that I'm not sure what is right. Some forums say that the 04 LS doesn't have a blend door actuator, and some are saying it does. I search for the part on Orielly's or Rock Auto, it only shows a plug. No actuator or anything. Can somebody help clear this up for me please? Or could it be that the DCCV has already gone bad again?
#139 of 155 Replacing the DCCV (Heater Control Valve)
Jul 20, 2011 (7:29 am)
Hello everyone, I finally got my new Heater Control Valve for my 2006 Lincoln LS V8. I was wondering if anyone knew on how to change out and replace the old with the new one. I took it to Ford and they wanted to charge me 125.00 just to LOOK at my car HIGHWAY ROBBERS!!They sell you cheap busted ass lemon cars and then charge you to look at thier own jacked up cars. Anyway I'll be damned if I am gonna pay them to fix this when I keep reading this can be done at the user level, only i havent found any real instructions on how to do so...So, if anyone has any help on "HOW TO" by all means please respond I would greatly appreciate it. I have already located the part now the problem is just changing out with the new one.

Correction - the DEALER wants to charge you $125. Ford has nothing to do with it. One of the Lincoln owner groups might have detailed instructions. Google is your friend.

Where did you find the error codes?
What is a 1265 code?

I would think with this many problems with the heater control valve, that Lincoln would reimburse us for the problem. Guess that's a pipedream but sure would be nice for them to pay to correct their error.

I just had my compressor changed out in my 03 lincoln ls(1200.00 dollars) and now my heat is acting funny. Could this be a related problem? The heat does work but at times it's slow to heat up, and after it's warm and I turn the car off you would think the heat would still be hot. Some times yes or no. Can someone give me advice.

I would have to agree with you I am also having the same issue with my Actuator Valve being stuck, it is located on the passengers side it is in a tight place Lincoln will charge you out your A$$ trust me I got an estimate they wanted over 500.00 screw that between my husband and I we can handle this, make sure you change the fuse as well
