I disconected the neg. battery cable and that took care of the engine light problem. Thanks. I think filling the coolent overflow tank the other day has maybe solved my low heat at idle. Now if I could figure out why my drivers door electric lock only works half the time and if I could get a couple of coil packs replaced at a fair price I'd have a perfect car once again.

Intermittent heat, door locks, fuel door, and rough idle, could they be related? I took my car for a few 3hr + highway drives. I experienced the locked up fuel door to fuel up before heading home. I experience the intermittent heat on the way home. The next day I experienced the locked up driver door lock. And until I noticed the idle had just gotten rough, it was running great with great fuel mileage.
I had experienced the locked up fuel door once before after a long trip and the Ford dealer said they had to unhook the battery cables because there was no other way to reprogram it, like in GM vehicles.
It seems that some how an extra electrical charge gets built up in the system and intermittently locks different things up, or maybe takes them out as in the ignition coils.
Has anyone been able to trace the root of this problem and come up with a permanent fix?

I have an 02 L2 V8. It has 210,00 miles. My heat has progessively gotten worse over the past year. Actually it all started three years ago when I had my radiator power flushed. That clogged up my thermostat so I had to buy a new one and ever since then my heat has gotten worse. When I started my car in the a.m. it would blow hot air but when I started driving it got hot. Two months ago I had some other work done on the car. They had to remove the radiator overflow to get to the part they were fixing. When I got my car back I had NO heat at all. Not even when I step on the gas. This sucks! I live in New England and it's December. All the mechanics I have called said they would power flush my systme again first to see if that will fix the heat. IDK if that will do anything but clog up my thermostat again. At this point I'm ready to try anything to get my heat back.
