No heat

I have a 2004 mercury grand marquis with 91,000 miles (4.6). I have no heat, and this is a problem because its winter! I recently changed the thermostat, but even when I have the climate control on the highest setting (90 degrees) and the fan on high, its still blowing cold air.

The engine runs at normal temperature, does not overheat at all.

Tested the EATC system, as described below and the only code that showed up was 025.

Can anyone tell me where in the dash I can find the air blend door actuator?

My problem is I have no heat or air working at all, seems as there is no power to the fan or temperature control unit. I remedied this by replace the blend door actuator thanks 2Carpros! I think the cost would be associated with this problem was $265.00.

There is a blower motor relay in the power center under the hood near the battery, try swapping it with anothe relay (wipers, A/C) to see if it will come on. If not need to get a test light and see if there is power at the blower motor resistor (right side of firewall near blower motor)

Heater problem
2003 Mercury Marquis V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 700054 miles

The air works. The blowers work. Hoses are fine. Theremastaut is fine

I can't get the heat to work on my 2003 Mercury grand marquis and the dealer said it might be the BLUNT door but I can't find anything about it in the book. The hoses are fine the thermostat is fine. It's not leaking water or antifreeze. I am trying to fix it myself because of the money. Thank Trish

Trish:
With the engine warm, the hearter on high, make sure both heater core hoses are hot. If they are, I think they are refering to the blender door. It opens to allow heat to pass the heater core and warm the car.

I have a 2003 Grand Marquis that is blowing air but will not get hot. I've checked the thermostat, anti freeze, and fuses. From what I gather there is a blend door valve that is prone to going bad and is coincidentally expensive to replace. Where is it and can I force it manually without replacing it?

Check the heater control valve and the heater core-if okay then deal with the air blend door/vacuum and actuator

I took it to the dealer and they said the problem was the blower fan, well I replaced it nd it still doesnt work. Ive checked all of the fuses ans I checked the relays. I figured out that the electrical current is not getting the the motor but I have no idea what to check next. Wha would be the most likely problem be? Thank you

Find the power wire to the blower motor and power it direct from the battery and see what happens -start here

On auto you set temp # and it holds temp at that setting by auto manipulating other control factors.

On manual system, your blower is ALWAYS HOT with mode switch anywhere but off. So check blower for hot wire good 12v. Your mode switch grounds blower relay(turns 12v on) and your blower switch grounds blower motor to make it run. Relay is by battery in junction box.

I had this same thing happen to me. It was the blower motor control resistor. You probably do not want try to tackle this yourself. I watch the service tech who had every tool you can think of battle it for about an hour. There are some plastic clips that if you break them you have to replace the whole line. Only cost me 378.00 to get fixed at a/c shop and I was in the Florida Keys on vacation. So it's not worth risk.
