2010 Lincoln MKS Problems

A/C Fan Speed Changing Constantly

The Lincoln MKS with optional automatic temperature control may have a problem with frequent fan speed changes when using the heater or air conditioner. Normally, the fan speed changes only to maintain a selected temperature, but when the fan speed changes frequently and needlessly, there is an issue with the fan speed control unit. 

The fan speed control unit, sometimes erroneously called the blower motor resister, regulates the speed for the blower motor in order to maintain the temperature set by the driver. When it fails, the fan will run at random settings, and the climate control will be inaccurate.

Note: this does not affect the temperature of the air that comes from the vents, it affects the amount of air that comes from the vents. 

The repair is simple, and quick. The control unit is located behind the glove box in most models, and removal and installation takes only minutes.

Also note: this only applies to vehicles with single or dual automatic climate control.

Software Update to Correct Various Radio Concerns

Various radio performance concerns may develop including noisy operation, no operation, or SYNC issues. Reprogramming the appropriate module with updated software will commonly correct most of these issues.

Fluid Leak From Axle Area

A fluid leak may be noted from the axle area. Red fluid is from the transmission. Brown fluid is from the power transfer unit (PTU). Leaks are commonly from the axle seal and/or PTU cover seal. Leaking seals should be replaced as necessary.

I lease a 2010 Lincoln MKS. My lease is done in Feb.2012. I was planning on buying it but now I wonder if I should. The engine light comes on almost every time after I re-fuel. I took it to the dealership where I bought it. They tell me it needs a new catalytic converter. Otherwise, I love the car but should I buy it now? It only has 19,000 miles on it.
