Give this a shot. I bought the 9L3Z part number, and have had no issues with the A/C turning off or on. Bought it from Tousley Ford Parts Depot. Easy to replace. Remove glove box, and the resistor part is right there in view.
Per the dealer, I ordered part 9L3Z19E624B which is not the number in this TSB, but I thought I'd ask.

Some 2007-2008 Expedition and Navigator vehicles equipped with Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (EATC) may exhibit a condition where the blower is inoperative no matter what speed or temp setting or the blower motor is stuck on high speed or off.

Obtain pigtail kit and using the approved splicing methods found in the Wiring Diagram (WD), Cell 5, crimp the butt connector and seal (with shrink tubing) the splice between the 13" (33 cm) pigtail and the black/white wire from C297.
Disconnect the existing 14401 single ground eyelet from G200 and cut existing eyelet from the ground .
Strip 1/4" (6.3 mm) insulation from the 14401 ground wire.
Using the approved splicing methods found in the WD, Cell 5, crimp the butt connector and seal (with shrink tubing) the splice between the 3" (7.6 cm) pigtail and the 14401 wire.

My wife just drove 115 mile with no front air conditioning. Gets home and the AC started blowing as normal. I ordered the part recommended and will make the repair. I took a quick look at the space behind the glove box and it looks like it will be an easy fix. Kind of a tight fit, but an easy fix none the less. Thanks to everyone that replied and I will post an update to let everyone know how it turns out!
The recommended part came in today, $68 with shipping. It looks like it has been re-engineered when compared to the old EATC controller. Dropped the glove box door, and 10 minutes later was done with the switch out. Started the truck and AC blowing as it should. I wonder how much the dealership would have charged...........
I had the exact same problem with my 2008 Navi. I also ordered the part from Tousley Ford. I replaced the part but did not mess with the wiring alterations as described in the TSB. I still have the same problem as before only now when the fan decides to work, it is on half speed even when set to high.
My question is, does anyone have pictures of what ground wire needs the alterations or have a diagram?
