2006 ford focus airconditioner couldn't cool contineously

The Airconditioner of 2006 ford focus cools for some time and then it ceases to cool especially when it is allowed to stay on continueosly whilst the car is in low speed in the city. Works okay when it is started in the morning.

    does the air volume decrease a lot? IF yes, the evaporator could be icing p doe to too cold evaporator.

    Is the compressor cycling on and off about 4 times/minute? That wold be normal at 70 degrees F.

    Have you checked charge of refrigerant to be sure it's in spec? Serviceport is in passenger fenderwell. Remove splash shield for access.

Sounds like it needs a coolant recharge. Many parts shops in the US will sell DIY AirCon recharge kits. Check the DIY sites, but basically, you can do this recharge without opening the hood-I believe the high-pressure connection is in the left side front wheel well.

What causes the cooling fan to operate non stop/ kicking in very often?


The temperature of the coolant (mixture)... is monitored by a thermostat... which then activates the cooling fan...

It is most likely in a ten year old car... that the cooling system has NEVER BEEN serviced... and more likely the FAN and Temperature sensor are the early warnings of a major cooling system failure.

Check your pump, hoses, fluid levels...for any obvious signs of leaks...

Invest in a pressure tester (see below) and test the integrity of your system... before buying that new anti-freeze.

Hope this helps

Where is power steering resevoir on focus 2006 1.6 diesel


There was an issue with the steering in that 04-11 focus... let me see if I can find the problems they've had for you.

Ford Focus fuel pipe leak (2004-2011 cars)
Cars built between July 2004 and February 2005 could have had problems with their fuel return pipes leaking. The pipes were made from material that degraded over time, allowing fuel to seep out.
Ford Focus wiper motor problem (2004-2011 cars)
On early second-generation cars built between April 2003 and March 2005, there were issues reported with the wiper motor. Water could enter the motor through the arm spindle, and if it contained salt, could short-circuit it and cause the motor to overheat. This could lead to trim melting around the motor.

Ford Focus engine failure problem (2004-2011 1.6 TDCi cars)
1.6 TDCi Focus models built between February and June 2004 might have problems with their engines, causing them to cut out. Misaligned oil feeds between the cylinder heads and camshaft bearings reduced oil flow, causing premature wearing of the camshaft bearings and engine seizure.
Ford Focus brake pedal problems (2004-2011 cars)
Cars built between November 2005 and December 2006 could have developed problems with their brake pedals. In particularly cold weather, the pedal could become stiff, as the non-return valve in the pump began to stick.
Ford Focus roll-over protection problems (2004-2011 CC cars)
On some Ford Focus CC models it was found that there were issues with the roll-over protection system. Securing bolts holding the system in place were either loose or not fully tight. Therefore the protection would not be fully effective. Ford should have fixed this for free, so make sure the work has been carried out.
Ford Focus cooling fan problems (2004-2011 1.6 TDCi estate car)
On some Focus 1.6 TDCi estates built between July 2004 and December 2006 there were problems with the cooling fans. Where roads are particularly salty, corrosion could easily occur, reaching as far as the control module. In extreme cases this could cause it to overheat, which could lead to fire.
Ford Focus rear hub bolt problems (2004-2011 cars)
On some Ford Focus models built between February and April 2007 there were problems with the rear hub bolts. They could come loose because they weren't made to the correct design specification.
Ford Focus power steering problems (2004-2011 cars)
Ford Focus models built between April and May 2008 could have had problems with their power steering. Some of the hoses fitted were not to the required specification. The hoses could degrade and allow hydraulic fluid to seep out, which could either cause the power steering to fail or, in more extreme cases, cause fire when the fluid became hot.
Ford Focus risk of fire problem (2004-2011 cars)
Hatchback and estate 1.6 TDCi Ford Focus models, manual and automatic, built between January 2006 and January 2007 may have a risk of fire unless they've had their cooling fans checked. Salty roads could lead to corrosion, overheating and fire if not sorted.
Ford Focus water leaks (2004-2011 cars)
On second-generation cars, some owners have reported water leaking into the cabin. Check any sunroof or window seals before you buy. Also look for damp carpet inside, because it could have become mouldy if left untreated.
Every one of these issues should have been remedied by Ford for free, so make sure the work has been carried out.

My ac compressor broke. I had a new compressor and expansion valve replaced. It cools a little on high but not enough. Any ideas on the problem?


You need to check the refrigerant pressures (high & low) and learned the reason for the cooling problem-the gauges are the only way you could ever know what is going one with the AC-low pressures (both sides), low refrigerant-high pressure, over charged and not allowing the AC to cool.

Never hot wire a cooling fan on a computer run car. Check the relays fuses and resistor connector in between the two fans. They usually melt the connector. I fixed mine with two female spade connectors

My 2003 ford focus is over heating quickly especially when i am sitting at a light, then when i turn the air conditioner on it overheats more


1. Does the cooling fan turn on when it over heats?
2. Check your coolant level, if it is a little low it will cool normally under transit and over heat in the conditions you are describing. Also have your coolant check for proper dilution.
3. If your cooling fan is failing to turn on you may have a coolant temperature switch issue.
