Question about 2002 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

Air conditioning When in the MAX setting my air conditioner now blows from the defrost vent instead of the panel vents. After the cab temp starts to reach the desired setting it will go back and forth from the defrost vents and the panel vents. The manual says the air recirculates from the cab in the MAX setting and should blow fromthe panel vents. Where is the return in the cab so I can check to see if it blocked.

I think it is going to be a vaccum leak.

A/C controler on Ford F-250 not working. A/C blows but to defrost only, nothing occurs when switching to vent control. Please advise. Thank You.


No airflow at all or just not cold? The AC only runs in the AC , Max or either of the defrost modes to automatically dehumidify the air to reduce fogging. The other positions vent in outside (non conditioned) air.

All Air Conditioning blows our the defrost vents


Some thing you could look at would be this. The control is usually fed by a vacuum line or small hose thats is connected to your intake manifold.
With a cold engine,look for a skinny vacuum hose that runs from the intake toward the fire wall . It should be going inside the cab and connecting to the A/C vent control.Some times the hose becomes disconnected or splits or cracks due to heat under the hood.
Thats usually the trouble.
I hope this helps you.

When I turn my vent selector to defrost on the far right (air con off)the air conditioning comes on. The dash vents will blow ambient air, but defrost setting blows air con. Any ideas?


It's normal for the A/C compressor to come on with the defroster to dehumidify the air so the windsheild won't fog up under humid conditions. You can still control the air temp. out the vents with the temp. select switch.

if your ac is on max i believe it recirculates the air in the car by sucking air in by the defrost vents and blows it back out of the normal vents try to move the controls to make sure the that the shutters are working and make sure the ac is not on max by selecting the knob that has an arrow going through the little car instead of the circular one that might fix the problem

Ac blows through defroster on max


The Climate control system in your truck has a gate that changes postition in order to change the flow of air from your face to defrost. The door is actuated by vacuum. Yours is still working otherwise it would be on defrost all the time. So you do have partial vacuum to the actuator but not enough to keep it in position when on high. Sounds like you have a vacuum leak but not bad enough (yet) to totally disable the gate.

Air will not blow out of panel vents


vents are blocked so air is diverted to other vents, check and clean if necessary
