SOURCE: a/c problem

You either have a bad control, or motor running the air direction door in the front HVAC unit, or a door that is stuck.

The front and rear units are totally separate.

The door directs where the air, cold or hot, should come out, whether it is panel vents, floor, defrost, or any combination of those.

This door and motor are located inside the heater box which usually requires a lot of the vehicle dash assembly to be taken apart to get to these parts.

SOURCE: My 1999 Ford F150 Heater only blows out cold air

Unfortunately, the HVAC system in the F-150 seems to have been poorly designed ... for years! My wife's 1999 model wouldn't produce hot air last winter, so she took it to the local Ford dealer. They diagnosed the problem as a broken blend door ... which seems to be a very common problem. The replacement part is cheap ... but you have to pull the entire dash out to replace it. Labor was more than $500 ... took an entire day.

Earlier this winter, I drove the truck and noticed that only slightly warm air was being blown out the vents. Back to the dealer ... only to discover the temperature control knob on the dash was cracked ... and for a mere $40 the dealer replaced it.

Drove the truck a week or so ago ... air only getting slightly warm again.

Solution ... only drive the truck in warm weather ... the AC works fine!

Someone ought to file a class action against Ford for such a faulty design.

SOURCE: Temperature Control not working on 1999 Ford Explorer

Sounds like your temperature actuator is not moving or your temp door is broken. On max a-c ,coolant is shut off to your heater core allowing only cold air in.

Depending on the model and year, you may have two different relays that handle that process. If you do, the high speed relay would need to be checked.

The a/c on my 2010 Mercury Milan quits blowing after about 2 hours of driving. Any ideas?


Sounds to me like the A/C clutch is no good and out of adjustment.You should goto your nerrest junkyard and get a used assembly take the clutch off then you learn how it comes off and install it on yours the save the pump for later use if needed. The clutch should only have a .010 air gap after install between th inner elctro magnet and the clutch plate it's self.

The problem is the blower motor speed control resistor, it is located near the blower motor in the housing. I exchanged mine and it works like a charm now.

We have a 2002 villager, the fan only works on Hi setting, Checked the 20 Amp fuse in the panel to the left of the steering column, as well as the larger fuse in the engine compartment. Both are fine. Is...


The blower motor doesn't use a different fuse depending on the speed. The most common cause for your concern is bad blower motor resistors. The resistors lower the voltage to the blower motor so it doesn't turn at full speed when you have it set to fan speed 1. When the resistors blow out the only setting that works is full speed because it doesn't go through the resistor.

Air Conditioner will not blow cold air (only slightly cool air) but air compressor is working. What can be wrong? Fan speed works fine.


chances are it needs regasing/presureising,unless you use a/c for about 15 mins a day(on average) a/c gas needs re charging every 4/5 years.

A bad blower motor resistor will cause it. It is located ny the blower motor p.s. below dash.

2002 Honda Odyssey fan only works at high speed. The A/C compressor also does not come on


If the fan only works on high speed I'd suspect a bad resistor in the fan circuit. On a new car it may be called by a different name but in essence does the same thing. It steps voltage down to the fan motor in all speeds but high. I'd check that first assuming there is no obstruction interfering with fan operation in all speeds but high overcomes that obstuction. I've seen mice among other things in a fan box on many occasions. I think the A/C problem is unrelated to your fan problem. This one may be a little harder to solve. The first thing to check is Freon level. The compressor won't cycle if the freon is low to avoid damage to the compressor. Do the fans, both under the hood come on when you turn on the A/C? If so it is more than likely just a Freon issue. If not take it to your local Honda Dealer.

Fan speed switch only works on #5


Call your local GMC Dealer and see if they have the climate control panel in stock. What happens is the circuit board on the back of the panel shorts out. The panel comes as an assembly and is very easy to replace. Don't go with a wrecking yard piece. I made that mistake once and it didn't work either. I got one from the Chevy dealer and it worked perfectly.
