Question about 2000 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Heater only blows hot (well, warm) on full speed of fan

Ford Escort 55D (van) X-reg. The heater only blows hot on fan position 3 (full speed), fan doesn't work on 1 or 2. Heater blows cold after restart unless temp. control is moved to cold then back to hot whilst ignition is on and fan set to pos. 3. Sometimes returns to cold and has to be 're-set' by turning temp. control to cold and back to hot again, sometimes several times before the sound of a flap closing is heard, after which hot air is emitted as desired. Temp. control works only on max (hot) or min (cold) pos, nothing in between.

Replace the temp control on this car, it should be electrical control not cables.

98 Ford Taurus Heat blows Full no matter how hot it is in the car and even though the Temp is turned down to 60. Also A/C does not work Blows Heat instead not just warm air actual heat. Can turn down fan...


The heater door is probably stuck in the full heat position. It could be a problem with the heater door motor or the controller - you'd have to check for both mechanical and electrical problems under the dashboard.

Hi my escort van 52 reg heater will only get slightly hot 1800


I'm not particularly familiar with that vehicle but all that I have seen also have a valve that opens and closes to allow or restrict the fluid flow to the heater core. It could be a problem if you haven't already eliminated it. The air defecting doors under the dash that direct air to the floor or to the defroster are also suspect.

Heater not working on setting 3


The blower motor resistor is bad, when you have the fan on high the fan motor (or blower motor) gets full voltage. When you have the switch on any other setting it gets reduced voltage via the "Blower Motor Resistor". That part is usually fairly close to fan motor in the duct work and is held in place with a couple screws and has a plug in going to with several wires. Sometimes that plug in gets melted to the resistor and the plug (or pig tail) has to be replaced too. This should be a fairly simple fix depending on the location of the resistor. The parts should be less than $100.00

I have a ford escort van and the heater has stpped blowing hot air, how do i fix this?


I assume the fan is working, as you are complaining just about hot air. If the engine reaches its normal temperature, ensure that the tap for the heater radiator is opening.

Problem with my heater on my escort van


try putting a 12v feed to the heater fan, if it works, you have a problem with your wiring, if it doesnt work, your blower is faulty.

hope this helps.
