Heat not working in front of 2004 Ford Freestar

The back heat works fine, the front heat doesn't work. I can feel heat on the vents, just doesn't blow out. Front vents/defrost/AC don't work.

SOURCE: heating problems

This problem is caused by a defective blend door (stuck) or blend door actuator motor. The blend door is what moves in the air stream to supply heat or cool, or a blend of the two, it is in the dash and the dash must be removed to access it for repair.

SOURCE: My front defroster doesn't work

Their is a vacuum actuated valve that redirects the flow of air from the panel to the defrost vents when the defrost is selected. I would check the vacuum line running to the valve while the vehicle is running with the defroster on and check whether or not the line is pulling a vacuum to actuate the valve, if not you obviously have a bad line or vacuum line fitting. If you have suction on the vacuum you will need to check the valve and see that is functioning properly. The valve is usually located under the dash on the passengers side. If you are mechanically inclined i would go to a local auto part store and pick up a repair manual for your car for about $20 as they contain diagrams and info that will save you alot of money.

SOURCE: no heat - ac stays on blowing through defrost vents

If you have the heater directed to the windshield, the AC will turn on. Move the control away from defrost.

SOURCE: ac will not blow thru ac vents, only thru defrost vents.

if vent doors are operated by vacuum check for loose or broken vacuum hoses in the engine compartment , or check the fuse box for any ac/heat fuses if it is a electricaly controoled system

SOURCE: ac only blows through defrost vents

I just found my problem that often brings in a Check Engine light, and reads out a PO 442 code. When my A/C is on my heater would start working because a vacuum operated control door would slam shut when accelerating. Also my cruise control would stop when going up a large incline.

the first thing to check, and easy is the cruise control for a bladder leak. Look on the top side passenger side of the firewall, and you will find a three way vacuum hose connection. One will be a very small black plastic line that runs to the cruise vacuum actuator. Pull this hose loose at the fire wall connection. Blow in this hose, and if it will not hold pressure, and in my case I could hear air passing through it is defective needing replacement. Block off the firewall connection for A temporary fix.

Most likly this van has seperate controls for driver and passenger heat and ac controls.If its blowing hot air your heat is working.These controls operate differant dampers that are electonicly controlled.If the dials arent working they would cause this problem.
