    Hello. I'm new not only to this site , but to the world of Lincoln as well. Just yesterday bought an 05 Ls. Beautiful car. Very well kept for its age. But it does have a few seemingly minor issues that I'm hoping to get help in resolving here. I found a video on you-tube that showed how to do the A/C self diagnostic. got codes 27 98, 12 65, 12 63. No idea what these mean. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This could be the wiring, but it is almost always the DCCV, a common failure. Get only the Motorcraft part to replace it. The aftermarket ones (even with lifetime warranty) only last for about a month. The Motorcraft part last for years.

    B1265 1265 Cold Air Bypass Door Actuator Circuit Failure Invalid code. Vehicle not equipped with cold air bypass door actuator. Ignore this code and continue diagnostics.
    Ignore this one on your 2nd gen LS, it's a software bug.

    B1263 1263 Panel Door Actuator Circuit Failure
    If you can control where the air comes out, then you can ignore this one. Codes for the air doors are sometimes set because they sometimes stick momentarily. The DATC will wiggle them back and forth to free them when this happens, and that usually works.
