    DATC and stock head unit

    I find that behind the dash can get pretty warm when the heat is on, which is understandable considering there are numerous ducts in there. Enough that I put in a fan to keep the raspberry pi cooler. Never hit thermal throttling, but it was getting up there. Never noticed the front face getting...

    2006 Lincoln Ls rear deck speakers replacement

    Yeaaa big PITA; I just did this a couple weeks ago; Got lucky and found a set while I was at the junkyard that still were in great condition for $5 each; They can be had new from Ford for ~$40ish each also. Considering it’s hard to find a reasonably priced direct fit sub at 2-ohms, I was glad I...

    For Sale LS Gen 2 DATC w/ heated and cooled seats

    Update: So, I've verified the DCCV is functional - When I ground out each of the wires, I can hear the solenoids closing, and had someone sit in the car, and the temperature goes go down. Not all the way to 'cold' - possibly a low refrigerant issue as well, I haven't checked that yet, but not...

    For Sale LS Gen 2 DATC w/ heated and cooled seats

    No worries; Sure seems like more magic than not sometimes... I’m familiar with electronics, I don’t understand why it’s giving me both the code for short to ground and the code for open circuit, it can’t be both. This is after running a new wire from the DATC to C134 that replaces brown/green...

    For Sale LS Gen 2 DATC w/ heated and cooled seats

    Not sure if this is accurate, but found this schematic without much model info. If it doesn’t actually go through any other modules, I’m even more confused how it can be both shorted to ground and an open circuit...

    For Sale LS Gen 2 DATC w/ heated and cooled seats

    Well, got a new wire run, but that didn’t work. Same 2798 with new 2797. It must go into something else, and is now picking up the original ground and now an open circuit from being snipped. Suppose I’ll wait for the wiring diagrams before going any further.

    For Sale LS Gen 2 DATC w/ heated and cooled seats

    Heh, that’s ok, thanks Joe. I’ve got some time, so I’ll probably just try running a new wire today (unless you think there’s a reason not to, if it connects to something else along the way). Tracing that harness leads me to believe the break is likely going to be somewhere really unpleasant to...

    For Sale LS Gen 2 DATC w/ heated and cooled seats

    Doesn't appear to be any of those connectors close by the DCCV, unfortunately. I see where the harness runs in front of the radiator, and up over the driver's side fender. Doesn't appear to be any easy access aside from cutting into the loom. Not seeing anything out of the ordinary there...

    For Sale LS Gen 2 DATC w/ heated and cooled seats

    That would be excellent, thanks. I’ll see what I can find. Yep, right above the DCCV, I’m familiar with that connector, will work back from there. Appreciate the help, Joe.

    For Sale LS Gen 2 DATC w/ heated and cooled seats

    OK, that seems to be getting me closer.. reading battery voltage on BN/GN right before the connector, BN/BU was ~150 mV, so the code is right. Any tips on where to look for a fault as I trace it back? Not super easy to see given the snaking and loom..

    For Sale LS Gen 2 DATC w/ heated and cooled seats

    I've checked those circuits multiple times, and just now again; Pinpoint test H10, >10k ohms: C1034-1 = ~1.2M ohms C1034-3 = ~1.5M ohms Which directed me to swap the DATC. Happy to oblige if you have any other ideas for things to test, I'm just at a loss here for where to go, other than...

    Also, it's not the #1 fuse. Though there was a 15 Amp in there, I swapped it out with the spec'd 10A

    For Sale LS Gen 2 DATC w/ heated and cooled seats

    Apologies - heat is getting to my brain. DATC code 2798. Also get the 1265, but I know that is to be ignored. Hah, that is interesting about the troubleshooting steps. Longer story time: Never had AC since I bought the car, always only full hot. DATC showed 2798 & 1265. Also slight leak...

    For Sale LS Gen 2 DATC w/ heated and cooled seats

    DATC for Gen 2 Heated / cooled seats control Silver color Believe it was pulled from a 2005 Decent shape, but not immaculate. Taking pictures, it’s really just a couple very light discolorations on the bottom left and right edges, and a faint couple scratches on the glass. Just looking to recoup...
