First of all I'd like to introduce myself.
My name is Vincent Cornelis, I'm from Holland, 24 years old, and I own a 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis LS.
I bought it 1,5 month ago and really love the ride!
It has work to do on it, but i like to fiddle around
Today my EATC Controller decided to stop working. First the only setting that was still operative was HIGH and after fiddling with the Controller it started working again! This stayed this way for approximately 5 minutes and then it died all together.
When I put the turning wheel up to HIGH the system resets itself and tries again but keeps resetting.
Now looking for a replacement part I came to the conclusion that i needed the following part number: 'F8VZ-19E624-BC'
This includes the Controller and the needed wiring.
It will set me back $149,- without shipment.
Looking further I found the '8W7Z-19E624-A
controller wich looks the same to me but appears to be slightly cheaper! Costs around $55,- without shipment.
Probably the parts wont be the same, but I am not able to find an answer for this.
Going by junkyards is not really an option around here in Holland because there aren't to many MGM's around here.
If someone here can help me further along in my search I would be vary grateful!
Thanks in advance,
[P.S. If you know a good place to buy these parts and if they also ship to Holland I'd like to know! I really can't find much on the internet for this part! Found only 1 Ebay Seller.. ]
