    I'm having the same problem with my heater control door staying in the cold side when I turn to the hot side it makes a clicking sound, how can I fix this problem

    Same problem here, but at first it was my AC not working and only heat came out no matter what setting, it has since changed to cold and it makes a clicking noise if I dont leave it in a certain spot on the dial just one mark above full cold setting. Any help would be appreciated.

I replaced the heat blend actuator because I was not getting any heat. Now, after replacing, all I get is hot air and no cold. The A/C was working fine just before replacing.


Do you have Manual Climate Control System or Dual Automatic Temperature Control System ?
The temperature control switch:
  • is a potentiometer that outputs a variable voltage to the temperature blend door actuator to set the position of the temperature blend door.
  • initiates closing of the heater control valve. When set to full COOL, a lever on the temperature blend door pivot shaft depresses the pintle of the heater control valve vacuum switch. The heater control valve vacuum switch then applies vacuum to the heater control valve, closing off engine coolant flow to the heater core.
  • is serviced only with the climate control assembly.
You may have disturbed something when changing the actuator , the vacuum switch o vacuum hose .

No heat 1996 ford explorer


i dont think the blend door pumps are electronic rather work with vacum so my best bet is to check that ure blend door aint broken best way u should hear a bump when u turn cold hot knob from end to end, and that ure main vac line on the engine compartment aint broken and even if electronically control that should be ure second step

1997 ford explorer xlt. max ac works fine but when i switch to normal ac or change vent control it blows out heated air. How do i check or repair?


The blend door actuator is probably bad in it causing the warm air to blow out instead of cold air. It is behind the dash.

It may take several hours for a technician to get at it and replace the parts required for it to work again.

Will a 98 transmission from a Ford Explorer XLT fit in a 97 Ford Explorer XLT?


No, which kind of surprised me!! Depending on the engine and drivetrain, some 1996 transmissions will work.

Heat when the fan blow at 2 but cold if the fan is at 3 speed


1st make sure the heated core is getting hot, do this by feeling the hoses under the hood that supply hot coolant to the core, if the inlet and outlet are hot then the core has circulation and is not the problem, check this and let me know what you find.
