Question about 2008 Ford Taurus X

Open Question

Ford Taurus X: When temperature knob is turned to the maximum cold setting, something in the dash starts clicking

No other temperature setting results in the noise, only the max cold setting. The clicking isn't immediate. For example, if you turn it to max hot, then back to max cold, it takes a few second before the clicking starts. It sounds like it is coming from somewhere in the middle/left of the dash board. Any ideas on what it could be?

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Taurus blowing hot air from the vents

I have the same problem on my 2000 Taurus. I've been told by a Ford service technician that it is probably an intermittent problem where the blend door gets stuck in the 'heat' position. I have electronic A/C controls, and there is a diagnostic procedure I can do where it runs the blend door through its full range of motion, and which seems to get it unstuck. If the problem happens again (and as I said, mine is intermittent), you might try doing the same thing by turning the dial all the way from hot to cold and back again a few times, to see if it gets unstuck. Or you could try to repair/replace the blend door.

SOURCE: HEATER DOES NOT STAY HOT IT STARTS THEN IT GOES COLD

Check radiator fluid level. The heater core sets higher than the engine. If fluid gets low, air bubbles will go to the highest point. The heater core. Check temperature guage. Is engine warming up to normal range? If not change the thermostat. Also check radiator cooling fans with engine warm.
On my car if I set the heater control on anything other than "vent" both cooling fans come on and the engine will not warm up. (still haven't figured that one out) I just run the heater in "vent"

If heater warms up when engine is held at high idle(2000rpms) then cools down at idle, you most likely have air traped in the system.

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.

SOURCE: 98 ford windstar has clicking noise under dash and won't start

The clicking noise is most likly the starter solinoid cycling in and out. This is due to low battery voltage. charge the battery, then have the battery and charging system tested. Some auto supply stores will do this for free for you in the hopes of selling parts

good luck

Ford Taurus idles low and takes 3-4 times to stay running on cold days


Some of these models have 2 temperature sensors. One makes the dash gauge or light work and the other works the engine controls.

The one that makes the engine controls work acts like a choke. It speeds up the rpm and enriches the fuel mix for cold starts. This is why you are having more problems in cold weather. You can see which one operates the dash gauge and then change the other one. Hopefully once you get the temperature sensor reporting to the engine management module, everything will work again.

I can tell you about my experience on my 1999 F150. I do not believe it is the blower control switch because mine went out and only affected the fan speed. On my truck, in an incident like yours, I could not get a good response from the temperature switch.

I would turn the control and it would hit a stop on both ends, but the temperature would not change to match the switch. What I found is the stem of the temperature control did not turn because the knob cracked behind the switch. There is a half-moon shaped metal clip inside the plastic temperature knob. The clip can spin when the knob is cracked and nothing moves right.

Because the plastic knob has molded stops under the knob, from the drivers point of view, the knob was turning lock to lock. In reality, the stem was not turning. Try taking the knob off and turning the stem with pliers wrapped in cloth to protect the plastic. Then see if the temperature changes.

An actuator for the blend door may have popped off or broken. Involves tearing into the dash, usally around the passenger side of the dash board.

Ford ka 2005 heater fault


There is a vacuum operated actuator that is in the venting system When you switch your control knob, a vaccum pressure is applied to this actuator. Then the actuator moves a flap that controls the warm air/cold air flow. The flap can get stuck, or the actuator can become leaky or weak
