Question about 2000 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

Front dash heat/ac knob is sluggish

The heat/ac knob on dash works but acts like it is only half responding when you move it through the temperature range. It also feels lighter in drag when rotating. Sometimes when adjusting the temp it it slow to react.
Any ideas??
Thanks

Air will not blow to windshield or floor only front vents. whats the matter?


Always give details about your vehicle. Yr. make, model etc. Some vehicles use vacuum to control the HVAC doors. Some use electric motors. Could be a leaky vacuum switch, actuator, bad motor. Broken door.

Looks like other people have had your problem. Have a look here. http://repairpal.com/heating-and-ac-temperature-and-air-delivery-mode-door-actuators-may-fail-266

The lights inside dashboard knobs & multi-function display went out


I'm not sure what model Toyota you have, but in a Camry, the cause is most likely a blown fuse. This is a 10A fuse labelled "Gauges" located behind a cover in the dash panel

Ac heater blower for 89' honda civic hatchback


For clarification, it seems that you are getting air blown through the system but there is no temperature change, hot or cold?

Your heater control panel is cable operated with sliding knobs, not like the newer electronic controls with push buttons. It is a "mechanical" set up as opposed to an electrical situation.

Does the slider for the temperature control feel like it has tension and is moving mechanisms in the dash somewhere? If not, the cable, which has an "S" curve on the ends, may have slipped out of the arm either behind the heater control panel or at the AC box where the door is. Also, check the heater control valve on the firewall under the hood to see if the arm on the valve is moving properly when the temperature slider is moved.

When you push the "AC" button, do you hear fans under the hood/AC relays click on/idle drop? If not, you may have a separate AC issue, either very low or no freon. If the freon is just a little low, check the sight glass for the freon to see if you see bubbles when the AC comes on.

Heating want work when i turn on the heat


Hello, when the engine is running and warm grab the heater hoses coming out of the Firewall and see if they are warm or hot. Most likely they are hot and that will move your search inside the cab.

I have a 1999 F150 which had the same problem. Get a pair of pliers and a rag to cushion the bite and pull off your heater control knob. Now protecting the plastic shaft of the heater control with a rag, turn the control valve CLOCKwise. Now run the engine on your truck and see if the cab gets hot.

If you look at the backside of the knob you will see a half circle metal clip. This clip will slip around the knob if the knob is cracked. It is hard to reposition and glue because the plastic knob has molded shapes which act as stops for the controls. The new knob costs about $10. Salvage yards won't sell them without the whole heater unit.

Should the knob not solve your problem, you will need to look at the flaps and doors under the dash.

If I am reading correctly you are hearing the vent doors moving to redirect the airflow to the vents you choose. This is normal and can be more noticeable if the blower fan is on, putting air pressure against the doors.

My 1997 jaguar xj6 blows air but no heat. Can anyone help? I checked all fuses, and AC works.


the only thing that can change the air from hot to cold, or vice versa is the blender door. under your dash is a box which has 2 compartments. one with your heater core which is hot and one with ac which is cold. the blender door basically diverts which on the air in your car is being drawn from. if it is cold, air is moving on the ac side. if its hot, air is moving through the heater core side. if its warm, the door is in the middle. your temperature control knob is conecteted to an actuator, which moves that door. the actuator is a motor, but if it goes out, the door will be stuck on whichever side it is on. i would check that first. hope this helps

2003 winstar no heat


Check the operation of the temperature control door. It is located in the center of the dash behind the radio. Look up between the gas pedal and heater case. It is white in color Move the temp knob while watching the actuator. If it is clicking it is bad. Good luck.

Cold Am . I turned the left knob 45 degree . All i get is HEAT,knob moves


Hi rafis1234,
if you are handy, you can remove the small dash panel where the a/c control knobs are and then you'll access the lever mechanism and most of the time you'll find a rusty lever or someting has jammed the lever.
Cheers
