2001 Mercury Sable LS - EATC Problem
I have a 2001 Sable LS with 67,000 miles. I was wondering if anyone may have encountered the issue I'm currently having. Today my climate control started blowing very hot air on the highest blower setting. No matter what I tried doing, nothing but hot air kept blowing out, full blast.
It was very warm in my car when I started it, so I'm assuming it was trying to run my A/C but for some reason that air wasn't getting into the car. I checked the A/C compressor and lines, and it appeared everything was ok with them.
I read online where you can run a diagnostic on the EATC, which I did. I received a code "051" & "025". After that it seemed like my A/C problem was fixed and everything seemed to be working ok. I cleared out the codes and waited another 15 minutes or so and tried running the diagnostics again to see if there were any new codes. I am now just getting the "051" code, but everything seems to be working ok.
I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to what I should do next? I don't know if I should be looking to replace the "solar radiation sensor", or if maybe it's my "Temperature blend door" failing. I just don't understand why I'm still getting the "solar radiation sensor open" code now that everything appears to be working ok. I imagine I'm going to have more problems to come, so I'm hoping to head it off now if possible. Thanks in advance for any info you might be able to give me.
