With a very efficient a/c on max there will be cold air from the vents ( like a mist) I suspect thet if you go down from max ther will not be a problem. What I suspect you have is air almost at the snow forming temp

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Explorer. A/c blows cold, but not from front of vents

I have the 03 Expy with continuous rear air unit "clicking" or more accurately flapping of the air damper while the plastic gears in the 2L2H-19E616-AA grind away into toothlessness. Ford designed this unit to find the end of travel by jamming the motor to a stop and monitoring the current to determine when to stop applying voltage. That would probably be fine if the gears were designed to handle the jammed torque or the motor did not slip out of groove and continue turning and cracking the plastic gears.

There are two white colored boxes, one is for the temp plenum door, the other the upper/lower air flow. To be sure, do what I did, turn on the ignition, rear ac/heat and listen for the obnoxious click/thump as you move the temp control from full heat to full cool, you will know which part. Disconnect the electrical connector, four bolts and it is out!

Go to your dealer, part should be about $60 or less, look on line, lots of dealers sell for this or less on internet.

SOURCE: 2005 Chrysler Town and Country air conditioning

I would be looking at a shorted blower resistor it is located behind the glove box on the HVAC housing. Prob the switch contacts with a 12 volt test light if the bulb intesity does not change the blower resistor is bad. The resister is at fault about 99% of the time.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Explorer XLT Air Conditioning vents blow hot and cold

It sounds like the control motor switching from hot to cold is stuck halfway in between the two temp settings. You will have to take it down and replace it, it is mounted under dash passenger side near the blower motor.

I have a 2006 ford Explorer when i put the air conditioning on max the air blows out of the defrost

The mode door controls where the air comes out. The door is operated by a vacuum motor. Check for a bad vacuum motor or cracked vacuum line to the motor.

If the blend door not moving would there be any other reason why my heater is not blowing hot air from my 2008 ford explorer

If the blend door is working, could be the heater core stopped up. Feel the heater hoses near the fire wall, both hoses will be hot to the touch. Close to the temp of the upper radiator hose.

My ford explorer a/c blows slow you can feel cold air but slow

check behind the glove box there is an air intake there and alot of times things will fall out of the glove box and plug it up, also underneath where the wiper arms fo sometimes it will get plugged with leaves this is where your fresh air intake is at.... the one inside the car behind the glove box is where the air intake for max a/c is.

The a/c in my 2004 Ford Explorer does not blow as hard as it should. it sounds like the air is coming out hard and fast but you can barely feel anything. Its cold air, just really light air.

You may have something clogged in the fins of the blower motor. Check that first. I'm always pulling plastic grocery bags out of them.

1997 ford explorer xlt. max ac works fine but when i switch to normal ac or change vent control it blows out heated air. How do i check or repair?

The blend door actuator is probably bad in it causing the warm air to blow out instead of cold air. It is behind the dash.

It may take several hours for a technician to get at it and replace the parts required for it to work again.

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.
