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??

Ford Ranger 2006 A.C. 3l. engine, Cabine temperature stay hot when knob is at cold position.

Sometimes it is the knob. The shaft of the control knob is a half-moon shape. The knob is half-moon shape with a metal clip around the opening for the shaft. When the knob cracks it spins around the shaft and you can not see this going on because it is behind the front side of the knob.

Water control valve- some systems use a water control valve to regulate water going into the heater core. These can be vacuum or cable operated. There will be a valve in the heater water line and can be stuck in one position causing your problem.

Air flow valve- some systems always have flow of hot water in the heater core, they just use a duct flap to route the flow through the core at one setting and close the flow when you want cool air. Sometimes the cable slips out of the fixture and will not move the duct door.

If you pry off the heater knob you will be able to see if it is cracked, just be careful not to scratch the face of the dash. You might be able to Web search for these components or even find a Youtube video showing how and where these components are located.

Hope this helps.

2001 suburban flushed core,changed radiator,,fresh coolant.heat at rear,cool air in front. Does Ac belt need to be attached

No. AC belt has nothing to do with it. Make sure your heater control valve underhood is moving when you go from hot to cold. If okay, check hot/cold blend door actuator under dash moving when switching from hot to cold. It's definitely one or the other. Fairly simple system.

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.

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

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.

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.
