My next driver will be another '03 or newer Grand Marquis GS with the manual heat/A.C. controls!(I prefer a cloth seat anyway)

You would love the one we just repaired. Grandpops car. A black 05 GS with a cloth interior 73k original miles spare tire never on the ground. Grandad ran into someone bashed the right front fender hood and header panel never hurt AC or cooling radiators. Car was always garaged Marine sticker in back window.I Bought it from Ins. Co. They are around just have to keep your eyes open.

Special Thanks go out to the wonderful folks who gave us the lead free solder which whiskers and disconnects so many electrical components from these cars.
I have a friend in the satellite engineering world who tells me known solder whiskering causes that community to include quintuple redundancy into everything going up to keep the junk working. Oddly the Lead Police grant no exception, after all, a baby in space might chew on a printed circuit.

Others in the electronic surplus world tell me they have scrapped truckloads of NOS components rather than deal with the Lead Police.

Well, I lucked out! The EATC control(Ford's problematic auto temp controller) that I picked up from the Pick-N-Pull for $19.95 turned out to work beautifully and it was an easy swap-out. A considerable savings over the $1200 new replacement(installed) quoted by the Ford dealer!

Believe it or not Ford sticks with a good thing (for them) that control is the same from 02 to 11. At least its easy to replace. Congrats on the good deal.
