At the cabin for the weekend. I remembered that Jenkins has an '89 Limo, so I grabbed some tools and went for a look. It was still there and I scored the ECC control head. They also had an '86 Fleetwood, which I liberated the control head and the blower module. I got all 3 for $25! The '86 still has the aluminum rims and a good hood. $125 for the rims and $50 for the hood. I'm going back in the spring for both.
 Pics in the next post, I hope.

 Seeing as it's dated May 16 1960, I wonder if this was a proposal in response to Lincoln's convertible sedan that was to be released in just a few months.

 Good tip. I'll have a good look at that. Problem is, checking voltages with a meter doesn't guarantee there is amperage flow..... That's where a good old incandescent test light comes in.

As I recall, the control head and the programmer share the same ground.  It might be worth cleaning in case there's corrosion interfering with the low-voltage signals.  Maybe there's a bad capacitor or two in the control head.

I installed the new programmer into the '87 today. That didn't go so well. Same problem. Funny, all the voltage checks for all the components check out good. But still the system is dead. The blend door moves, I can hear a click when I turn on defrost. But no fan and no mode movement.

 However, the control head went dead on me a few times during diagnosis. One time I smacked it and it came back on. Input voltages are fine. So, I guess I'm looking for a control head now.....

 I replaced the ECC control head today. No defrost, now good. That went well....

Good luck. Going on Rockauto is getting dangerous now with so many parts that may get discontinued that you just want to buy them all.

Exactly!
