SOURCE: where is the low tire reset button located on 2005 ford freestar?

It is on the same button as the Trip Odometer. Cycle through until you see Tire Reset and hold the button down.

SOURCE: my 2004 ford freestar van is hesitating going down

most likely not the fuel filter- try plugs and wires... could be a number of things, if the vehicle runs fine while in park and doesnt hesitate, most likely is sprk plugs and wires or a transmission problem...

SOURCE: ac not working properly

Low on R134A or condenser has a restriction
The condenser is in front of the radiator.
The R134a systems are known for not blowing as cold during idle.

SOURCE: 2005 ford freestar wont start

Check the battery. If the battery is weak all you will hear is the starter soliniod clicking. Make sure that all of the cables have good clean tight connections.
Most Auto parts stores can test your battery to see what shape it is in.

SOURCE: 1997 ford contour overheating. fan not coming on.

The fan will usually come on between 208 degrees and 212 degrees. Check for coolant flow. Does it run hot with the a/c on?

I have a 1994 Mercury Villager Van, when i turn on the A/C the Van Hesitates and jerks at a stop light, but when going down the road, the van runs fine and A/C works great, What could be wrong?


Without AC on..... the vehicle is ok at stop light? If so, sounds as if the idle is too low with AC on causing the extra load on the engine. Is the vehicle in a good state of tune ( spar plugs etc )? The throttle plate may be dirty causing minumum idle spec to be off. Inspect throttle plate and clean a necessary and retest. There may also be a problem with the idle control motor or a problem with vacuum leaks causing this issue

Both radiator fans don't come on until accelerator pedal is pushed


Check that you have both sufficient voltage and AC system is properly charged. Also that your idle is set correctly. The idle should be higher when you turn on the AC. Does the idle increase / decrease when you turn on / off the AC? Low voltage from the alternator could cause the AC not to work properly but .... I would suspect you would notice that you have very dim headlights at idle if the alternator was not working correctly. The amount of charge in the AC system will definitely cause this type of problem.

Compressor and fans do not turn on until rev engine


I passed this question the first time I read it, so I will take a stab at it now.
The fans don't come on until the compressor has pumped the freon pressure up to say 150 or 200 psi. And the compressor clutch has to have voltage to engage the clutch.
I wonder if the clutch is going and needs 14 volts instead of 12 to engage ? Or the relay that powers the clutch ?
Speeding up the engine would increase voltage from the alternator.
This is assuming the serpentine belt is tight and everything else is working correctly.
I think I would swap the relay with another and put a meter on that circuit to the ac clutch to see what it takes to engage it.

1990 Geo Metro. Driving down the road with the a/c on the car loses power and starts slowing down. Also hear a sound, like compressed air being released the wife says under the car behind the front seats,...


It sounds like the ac compressor is building up to much head pressure.Check the cooling fans to see if they come on when the ac is turned on.The cooling fan should come on when the ac is turned on.This keeps the head pressure down so the freon keeps cool enough to cool the vehicle.Check the cooling fan,or fans to see if they are working when the ac is on,let me know if I can help you any more.

Ac does not blow cold at idle... ac condenser fan


that seems to be the problem. If the fan does not turn on when the a/c is turned on it could be a fuse, relay, control box, or just a bad fan. Try connecting the fan directly to see if it works. Does this car have 2 fans? normally all the small cars have 2 fans one for the engine cooling and one to assist the first when the a/c is turned on. Without the fan pulling air through the a/c condensor the had pressure goes up high enough to shut off the a/c compressor. It also causes some cars to run warmer than usual when stopped. Check the a/c condensor for blockage also which doesn't have anything to do with your fan not working.

1999 odyssey blows some cold air when moving


It could be a number of things. Check to see if the clutch is turning on the compressor. If it keeps turning on and off (cycling) it is low on freon. Is the condenser clean and free of bugs and road debris? Is the radiator fan coming on? If not that could explain why it is cold while driving, but hot while idling. Most all vehicles will blow colder on the AC when driving down the road because you are getting cooler air through the condenser. Hooking up a set of gauges to the vehicle will tell you best what is going on. Basic rule of thumb is: low side should be in the 30-40 lb range while running and the high side should be around 100 lbs higher than the ambient air temperature. Anything drastically different means you have a problem.

2003 Honda Civic runs hot when idling.


Check the cooling fan switch. It appears your auxiliary electric cooling fan isn't going on when at idle. and engine temp increases. While you are driving, air is being rammed thru your radiator as you cruise along, so it isn't overheating, at idle, that isn't happening, and the fan should go on as the temp goes up. When the ac is switched on, the fan is being signaled to operate due to the heavy ac load on the cooling system.
