I have a car here 2005 Ford Taurus 3.0 vin 2 has the same two codes.
I have traced the problem to a blow fuse under hood compartment 22.
After replacing the fuse the check engine light went off, as soon as we turn the blower motor on the fuse blew again. Fuse 22, serves the AC clutch relay, Idle Air Control valve and VBATT (vehicle battery supply) for the PCM (power control module). The next thing is to find a short in one of the three systems.
