    Vehicle out of storage April 8th 2016
    *side note my Air bag light has been on for three years - was told by dealer clock spring needs replacing- thanks to the internet and other posts - I checked under drivers seat and the wire was broken - now repaired . All good
    April 11th 2016 - had DCCV replaced by a mechanic in town I know. Still no heat - not able to fully check A/C bit cool out. Will do soon
    Whenever I do the self diagnostic with the buttons as suggested - I get #8888 only - should I be using a different pattern?

    Dec 2015 - took to Lincoln dealer about and hr. away for evaluation. Was determined by them for $152 that the DCCV and Aux Circulating pump needed replacing for $1600. I wasn't going to spend that then put into storage.

    Two weeks later no A/c. Blows extreme heat when air on. Took back to place that removed the gasses. A fuse had blown( front distribution box- position#1- A/C clutch) Replaced it. Had A/C again
    Two days later blown again - took back to service centre again, he tested it and said he thought compressor magnetic field were causing fuse to blow. Recommended a local Auto Electric shop, Which I have used before, for other vehicles.
    Sept- 2015, took to the Auto Electric shop- owner hooked it up but could only get fuse to blow once. The Weather had become too cool to get the A/C to go on and he couldn't get it in the shop due to other commitments. But he did notice that there was little to no heat! as well.

    no A/c for one yr , told by Lincoln dealer compressor not working.
    July 2014 - had compressor installed -still no A/c
    Aug 2014 - took to two separate service centres, was told it was the Expansion valve. I didn't have $1000+ and put into storage for the winter.
    May 2015 - Had Expansion valve replaced - A/c worked Yea!, Just so you know we don't use car often, about once a week or so.

    On second thought ... I'm going to keep this car so the whole manual would be great. Do you recall where you purchased your DVD from?
