Question about 2003 Ford ZX2

1 Answer

Air Conditioner I have a 2003 Ford ZX2, and I am having trouble with my air conditioner, the air comes on but is not cold, my dad checked it out and said the power is not going to the fan or something, so he rigged it up and put a switch in my car, which I think is hooked directly to the battery. Now when I have the air on I have to turn the switch on. Anyway he needs to know where the relay switch is so hopefully that will fix the problem. He is a mechanic so if you have a brief idea, he can probably figure the rest out. Please help if you can. Thanks, Crystal

Relays for air conditioners are normally close to the thermostat and tx valves
the problem amy not be with the fan but with the ac compressor not turning on from lack of gas
tell him to check for leaks or take it to an accredited ac shop and have the job done properly

SOURCE: my 1996 ford explorer Air conditioner suddenly stopped blowing cold air.

You need to check two things for Ford A/C:

1) Verify that the proper levels of old/r134a are present, you can do this your self it takes only a cheap gauge and a thermometer, you will need to check both the low and high side pressures.
What you are looking for is that both sides read what they should for the ambient temp outside, at 95F it is around 42 on the low side and 275 on the high side.

2) Make sure the A/C clutch is kicking in.

Most problems are going to be ring leakage that causes low fluid levels, or a hole in the dryer that does the same thing. If you have proper levels and the clutch is still not locking in and turning the compressor and you do not have the tools or knowledge to start replacing parts take it to a shop and have them look at it.

If you want to post the results of the above test I will try to help more.

SOURCE: My 2002 Ford Taurus will shutter and die when

the idle air control valve is responsible for engine idle.
this is a common failure on ford's. but I don't think yours is bad because it does idle high befor it dies.
you stated you had codes p0171 and p0174 these are lean codes for bank one and two, you said you found a vacuum leak and repaired it, the vacuum leak was mostly likely the cause of the lean codes, however the pcm has calibrated the fueling stategy for this lean mixture, what you need to do is erase the KAM "keep alive memory" this is done by unhooking the negative battery cable for 60 seconds, this is the only way to erase the KAM the $6000.00 machine I use wont even do it.

once the KAM is clean the computer will go into a relearn state and all operating values will be adjusted for the vehicles current condition, during this relearn session the vehicle may have some driveability issues (low or high idle, stalling, poor fuel economy) the relearn should complete within 10 minutes of idling and then 10 minutes of driving.

good luck and keep me updated

SOURCE: Air conditioning relay switch - 2001 Ford Tauras

there is usually a relay block (black in color) either on the right or left side under the hood, and in front of the wheel well. Don't discount the possibility that you may have a bad pressure switch on the line. That is a safety device that is now installed on most all vehicles. If you turn on your defrost, you should hear the clutch on your AC clicking on and off. If you do, there is another issue. If you don't, then listen for a faint clicking. This is a small relay so it maybe very hard to hear, even if you found it. You many actually have to lightly put a finger on the relay cube to see if you can feel it clicking. If this is clicking, but the AC is not kicking in and out, replace the relay. If this is NOT clicking with the defrost on, then it is not being told that it is ok to. This may be the pressure switch that drops out if the freon is too low, or too high.

2003 ford zx2 air conditioning not blowing cold air


Check and see if there is any Ice on the copper line that runs from condenser (outside unit) to air handler (inside) if so you need a charge. You can also make sure the fan is working on the condenser unit outside it should spin when you have the air on. If it is not you have a bad fan motor. there are other things it could be but these you can see.

New serpentine belt smoking on 02 zx2


Check to make sure all the idler and other belt pulleys turn freely. It's possible that one of the pulley bearings is locked up which will cause the belt to smoke and fail as it slides over the siezed pulley.

When the air conditioner is on and your in drive at a stop the steering wheel vibrates..why


This is quite normal but difficult to stop now.When you power on ac,there is a pulley which sets on and turns and the compressor kicks in to give you the cold air.This is a very difficult problem to solve unless you change all rubber mountings,etc, bearing here and there and/or belt etc..I would suggest you disregard this problem.
