Question Answered: air conditioning woes

To get an a/c system to cool more than 20 degrees is about all that can be expected. Your reading of 68 degrees sounds adequate but the blower fan or vent directions may need to be reset to get the conditioned air circulating in the truck. Remember to open the windows to allow the real hot air out when initially starting to cool the vehicle and use the recirc setting if the air is acceptable - like no smoking etc. needing to be let out; you'll get extra performance from the a/c system.

I believe it is the master power window switch on the drivers door. Mine does the same thing. I got it to work for a short time by giving the door panel a good thump but it lasted a day or two. Replacing the switch is an easy fix and is less than a $100. Easy to replace on you own.
Question Answered: Electric Windows - Passenger Control

I have the same problem. It works intermittently (never when passengers are in truck). I took the drivers door apart and believe it requires changing the window control switch for all of the power windows. It's less than a $100 for this fix. Easy to do also.
Car Review: 2004 Ford Thunderbird
July 31, 2009, 02:23 PM
ABS Light came on @ 22K miles. This was a $450 fix (one wheel only D/S front) because Ford no longer stocks the sensor only as a repair part. The whole assembly had to be purchased. I recently found a TSB outlining Fords service requirements of this part. A small hole is needed to be drilled at base of hub assembly and wheel sensor need to be changed. However this was all discovered after warranty expired. Has anyone been re-imbursed by Ford for this?
Also this was marketted and priced as a premium vehicle but lacks premium features such as memory seats associated with the key fobs allowing a two driver family to have their settings saved. A Jeep Grand Cherokee has this featur but not a Ford T-Bird? Why isn't there a Factory fitted GPS unit available to, didn't Lincoln LS owners have this available in 2004 or 2005? Seems at the time Ford was ignorant of the profits available with these expensive GPS toys.
