Heater in 2005 Focus

The heater in my focus only works when the car is in motion. When the car is idling it blows out cold air. It takes about 20 mins. to defrost my car in the morning.

    The heating sucks in this car. I have to let my car run for 20 minutes if I want it to be even remotely warm when I leave for work in the morning. Luckily the seats warm up quickly but I'm very disappointed with the heating in my car.

    Firstly check coolant level!

    if ok, then i would say you have a waterpump problem.but to be fair not a common fault on this veh. Are you having overheating problems?

    I think you just need to top up water.

you have a problem with the heater/a/c controls there obviouly stuck on a/c you will need to strip out the control panel to see why the direction/vent , hot/cold , fan speed controls are not working , before doing this have you checked the fuses as there may be a seperate fuse for the control panel ,if this all checks out take to an a/c specialist as you dont want to mess around with a/c gasses etc

2005 ford focus revs up high and heater not hot


It may be a vacuum leak. Some vehicles use engine vacuum to operate heater controls. A leak would cause the controls to malfunction and also increase engine idle. Check all the vacuum hoses for damagedvor unplugged ends. Hope this helps.

2005 jeep liberty blows cold air through the heater.


could be the thermostat if it was just stating to go bad,could also be a vacume problem not letting the door for the ac/heat close all the way for a few min.and if its really cold out like below 35,then its going to take longer to warm up,my jeep takes like around 20 min at idle to warm up.yours could be a case of over cooling in cold weather too ie(electric fans on before it warms up)that would be the thermostatic sensor.

Heater not working on ford focus diezel year 2000


does your blower motor work or it just blowing cold air?
if it does not blow then check the fuse, the motor may be bad
if it blows cold air only then check your coolant level
check to see if the heater hoses are hot on both of them
if the hoses are hot then you may have a blend door actuator bad

No heating inside, just blows out cold air.


check your coolant- if it is low, top it off. you could have an air bubble or the heater core could be clogged. if not the air mode door in the heater box might not be moving. that is the hardest and last to check
