You have a vacuum leak in the engine compartment mst likely. Check the vacuum line from the engine to the firewall and into the vehcile under the dash.
Also check the vacuum storage canister that stores vacuum for the heater controls when you step on the gas. You can just disconnect the hose to the reservoir and plug it temporarily to see if the system workd ok.

Vacuum Reservoir Removal and Installation

  1. Remove the battery and battery tray. For additional information, refer to Section 414-01 .

Yes, the front panel needs to be removed but it takes 2 minutes. There are two screws holding the panel on, look above the instrument cluster. Once you remove those, gently pry the panel loose with a small flathead.. there are probably 8 plastic clips that hold it on.

Once the panel is loose, you'll need to disconnect all the plugs from the back, like the headlight switch, Info Center, and AC/Heater controls. You'll probably also need to lower the tilt wheel all the way down and place the shifter all the way down as well. You should be able to work the panel out then.

The radio is then held in place with 2 - 4 screws.

Why is 2005 ford expedition air conditioning is leaking in rear back door location

Mine has been known to leak from time to time somewhere from under the front passenger side dash. I never pursued the problem because it was never continuous. Sorry I couldn\'t be more help. Hopefully it\'s only a temporary nuisance for ya.

Tips for operating Air conditioning system on Toyota Hilux and someother...

To cool off your Toyota after it has been parked in the hot sun, drive with the windows open for a few minutes. This vents the hot air, allowing the air conditioning to cool the interior more quickly.

Make sure the air intake grilles in front of the windshield are not blocked (by leaves or snow, for example).

On humid, do not blow cold air on the windshield. The windshield could fog up because of the difference in air temperature on the inside and outside of the windshield.

Keep the area under the front seats clear to allow air to circulate throughout the vehicle.

On cold days, set the fan speed to high for a minute to help clear the intake ducts of snow or moisture. This can reduce the amount of fogging on the windows.

When driving on dusty roads, close all windows. If dust thrown up b the vehicle is still drawn into the vehicle after closing the windows, it is recommended that the in intake be set to FRESH and the fan speed to any setting except "OFF".

If following another vehicle on a dusty road, or driving in windy and dusty conditions, it is recommended that the air intake be temporarily set to RECIRCULATE, which will close off the outside passage and prevent outside air and dust from entering the vehicle interior.


For best results, set controls to;
Fan speed ---- Any setting except "OFF"
Temperature----Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake ---- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow ---- FLOOR
Air conditioning ---- OFF

For quick heating, select recirculated air for a few minutes. To keep the windows from fogging, select fresh after the vehicle has been warmed.

Press the "A/C" button on for dehumidified heating.

Choose floor/windshield air flow to heat the voltage interior while defrosting or defogging the windshield.


For best results, set controls to;

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards COLD (blue zone)
Air intake --- (outside air)
Air flow --- PANEL
Air conditioning --- ON

For quick cooling, move the air intake selector to recirculate for a few minutes.


For best results, set controls to;

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards COLD (blue zone)
Air intake --- (outside air)
Air flow --- PANEL
Air conditioning --- ON


The inside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone) to heat; COLD (blue zone) to cool
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- ON

The outside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- OFF

On humid days, do not blow cold air on the windshield. The windshield could fog up because of the difference in air temperature on the inside and outside of the windshield.


The outside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- OFF

To heat the vehicle interior while defrosting the windshield, choose floor/windshield air flow.

Air conditioning, fluctuates between vent and windshield, when set on vent

Most common cause of your problem is the blower motor actuator. This module diverts air from the defroster, to vent, to floor and is vacuum driven. The vacuum leak is usually under the hood starting at the firewall on the passenger side and working your way backward.

Rear A/C for 2005 Ford Expedition

I had same problem. What I did was a temporary fix that needs to be repeated once in a while. Here goes. Remove the rear cup holder that is above the rear vent on the passenger side of the vehicle. Take a long Flat Head Screwdriver and try to rotate the white plastic gear clockwise by pushing it on the left side of one of the teeth. You will feel it give and should feel air coming from roof vents instead of bottom vent. It is pretty easy to do but may have to be repeated off and on.

your controls have problems. the heat is there it is just not getting out because your control lines are not setting the vent controls into the proper positions. i had a chev van that lost some of the foam in side there and it blocked the whole front off. i had to rip it all apart to get at it

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.
