Check the filters located behind a panel in the back of the glove box they should be cleaned at least once a year. if not plugged then check to see if the switch is changing from panel to floor to defrost ect. could be this selector switch.

I have a 2002 town and country Chrysler I turn on the a/c but in the front it wont blow cold or hot air but in the back were I seat my kids throughs cold air in the back

Your van apparently has dual heat and air and it sounds as if your rear unit is working and your front is not. Will the front blow at any speed? or is it completely dead? If it will only operate on a medium setting you should have your blower resistor changed out, but if it does not operate at all, check for voltage at the blower motor plug in. If you have power but the motor is not running then have the blower motor changed.

My pacifica is not blowing air in the front, only in the rear, what can I do?

If it is like the mini vans you will find a small board with two plugs behing the glove box. This is the speed control for the blower motor. Remove the plug with 2 wires. This is the plug going to the blower motor. With the AC turned on measure the voltage at the 2 terminals of the board. The terminals you just removed the plug from. It should read about 12 volts. If it reads 12 volts then the blower motor is bad. There is a fuse and a relay for the blower ckt in the fuse box. Your owners manual will show you where. But if you have 12 volts at the terminals I just mention then they are ok.

Rear AC dosnt blow in the back of van. is there another blower motor in the rear besides the one in the front?

If you open the back door on the van, to the left in the 1998 van there is a panel with the air compressor behind it. there is a blower motor for the rear of the van vent system behind that compressor panel. in the 1998 van there is a clip that plugs in and can become loose causing the blower to not come on.

Hi, My blower on my E350 1994 Ford is not working anymore... Where is it? Perhaps I can replace it myself. HELP !!!

i have a 2000 Ford E350 1 ton Van the heat works in front but blows cold air in rear. Would the problem be a blower heater switch and where is it? I hope I don't have to take off the whole dash.

Explorer front air not blowing, rear blowing cold air

If the front is still blowing air but not air conditioned air than it is likely that a flap that controls airflow to the front has failed. The rear would still work as it is controlled by an auxiliary control.

If there is no air coming out of the front at all I would suspect a blower motor as the rear has it's own blower.

Either way a scan tool that is able to access the HVAC system is going to be the only to accurately diagnose this problem.

The blowers for the air condition and heat in the front of the van do not blow air

Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

If your ac controls still operate the rear blower, but not the front, then you most likely need a Ac amp. It's like a blower motor resistor. I would have it checked to verify.

Thanks Jay!

2003 ford van e350 rear air vent is not blowing

Try this article. I have the same problem and I think it is the vacuum motor that controls the door for changing from hot/cold in the rear heater box (located inside behind the L rear wheel)
