Question about 1998 Ford Contour
I just paid a shop $330 to drive away with the same problem. My heater blows but no heat! The AC is fine. They apparently did this work, but did not solve the problem, I think I got ripped off? This is what they did: Checked Cooling System for Pressure Test & Leaks, Belts, Hoses, Radiator and Water Pump all was ok there but they actually did, JB Coolant Flush, Thermostat, Gasket & Radiator Cap, then they told me it didnt work and to take to electrical shop? Can you enlighten me if I should follow this or do you suggest they didnt do what they did right? Thank you soooo very much.
Replace the heat controls in the dash, just og to the junk yard and get a new one, you can actually replace this yourself.
where the unit is, you have to remove all of the botls around it, just feel around for them and unscrew them. this will loosin the panel, pull the panel off, adn you will see there is 4 screws holding the heat controls in, unscrew them, and pull the control out, you will have to unplug a couple of plugs and undo a hard wire form the top, it is frustrating, but you have to hold the hard wire and turn the control tword the pasenger side of the car to pop it out, it is possible there is a clip holding itdown, if so just push on the bottom of the clip and it will pop out. and do the same to put the new one in.
