Howdy, I just purchased a 2005 Town Car Signature Limited. Loving it, and all my friends like riding around in old-school style.

I have a question and tried the search before asking but couldn't find what I was looking for. The A/C when blowing on full blast just doesn't seem like what it should be so that I end up leaving the setting on it's highest to keep the car cool. It almost feels like there is a restriction or something or it could even be the design as it was in 2005. But, compared to my newer vehicles, the air blowing out feels like it would be on the low to medium setting on the newer cars. Note: the air is cold as it should be just not as strong, and on occasion I will get the actuator knock that seems to be common, if that relates to the issue. No codes, no lights.

It's not impossible that you have an actuator servo acting up, but these cars are known for not blowing as much air as one might think they should even when working correctly. There's a self-test you can trigger on the climate control unit that would be a good place to start.

Thank you for that! It's throwing a 2267 code which is a right side blend door actuator. It looks like it's the easier to fix of the two that can go bad. I will change that and see if that fixes the problem.

I think I did that one on my 04, wasn't too bad. The blend door swaps between hot and cold air basically, not likely the culprit for a low flow issue but cheap as they are you should certainly replace it. Think I got mine off amazon or rock auto.

Like the others have said, the airflow is generally considered weak on these for the '03-up. Also if you have the "Recirc" button off the flow will be much weaker than with "Recirc" on, so if you haven't turned it on already you could try that.

Blend door actuator controls the temperature of the air, not the amount of airflow itself if i am recalling correctly.

I have a 2009 with a 2267 code. After I replace the blend door actuator, how do I clear the code? Thank you.
There are 3 ways to do this
1) Do nothing. After so many start and stop cycles it will be cleared. It may take 10 or 20 and it will go away
2) Disconnect the battery for greater than 40 minutes. That will clear some other things too
3) Use a code reader to clear codes

•The self-test can be initiated at any time. Normal operation of the system stops when the self-test is activated.
•To enter the self-test, press the OFF and FLOOR buttons simultaneously and then press the AUTO button within 2 seconds. The display will show the fan speed indicator illuminating from low to high. The test may run as long as 30 seconds. Record all DTCs displayed.
• If any DTCs appear during the self-test, follow the diagnostics procedure given under ACTION for each DTC given.
• If a condition exists but no DTCs appear during the self-test, refer to the Symptom Chart Condition: The EATC System Is Inoperative, Intermittent or Incorrect Operation.
•To exit the self-test and clear all DTCs, press the FRONT DEFROST button. The EATC control assembly will then turn OFF (display blank) and all DTCs will be cleared.
•Always exit the self-test before powering the system down (system turned OFF).

If that’s the manufacture date in the lower left corner then it lasted almost 14 years. My car was made 01/09.

The position wiper fingers and the circuit board look fine. The gears are not broken. I’d guess the motor gave out. I also checked the blend door itself for freedom of movement.

That should be fixed, but it's not going to help with your air volume issue. That door only controls the temperature of passenger vents (how much or little air flows from the heater and evaporator cores). It does not restrict airflow.
