Question about 1997 Mercury Villager

1 Answer

Rear Air & Heat does not work on '97 Mercury Villager.

Heat and air works fine in front. 3.0 V6 engine. All fuses under dash and in engine compartment checks good. Replaced rear selector switch on front dash which did not fix problem. Also, no lights on rear selector/control panel which is located on the left side of van behind the driver seat.

    You guys are awesome....I removed the circuit board from the A/C controller on the dash. One look at the circuit board and I could tell that was the problem. After cleaning the circuit board with alcohol I bypassed the relay with two pieces of 8 GA. wire. The guidance provided was right on target.

    I only ran the A/C for about five minutes and everything worked fine. Lights on the rear panel are working again too. Hope this will be a permanent fix.

    I have the same problem!! My husband has been outside trying to fix it, replaced the blower motor which didn't fix it....the air works fine (after we had the hose replaced) in the front but there is no air coming out of the vents in the back. Sometimes you can hear something attempting to move but nothing happens. This circuit board...where exactly is it located? Do you think this is the same problem?

It's probably the cracked solder joint on the control assembly in the frony. I fix them all the time and sell them for $30 plus shipping. I always keep a spare repaired in my garage. villagers & Quests are noted for this. Don't know why you don't have lights on rear panel. I keep a spare one of those too, but it should have no affect on heater performance. Let me know if you are interested. You have to send yours back to me though.

If you are a techie, I will refer you to our Villager forum where there are files and photos on everthing about Villager & Quest issues.

http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/villagerquest/


see the circleed area where the bad solder joint is on the backside of the control head.

SOURCE: Rear seat removal 2000 merc Villager

We have a 1997 Mercury Villager. I don't know how different it is from ours. We cannot remove the back seat. We can remove the middle seat and slide the back seat forward. I hope this helps.

no keep in mind i cannot test drive your vehicle but here are some possibilitys and i dont know if this just happend all of a sudden either. well it is commen for the Axel shafts to break on front wheel drives over a few years and yes this will cause a cluncking noise and will not let the vehicle move. and if it has had shifting problems prior it could be the Trany itself. but i am willing to bet that the CV shaft has broke on you
hope this helps you out
please leave a Rating for me

SOURCE: looking for location of bcm on 97 astro van dash

The BCM is located immediately above the heater controls inside the dash on my 2004 Astro. I know it controls the headlights and locks but not gauges. Haynes says the gauge fuse supplies it power....but I'm not going to bank on that one.

SOURCE: lost remote to disable alarm on 2000 mercury

If you have the factory alarm system, you can put your key into either door and lock and unlock the door, that signals the computer to deativate the alarm. If you have an aftermarket alarm system installed, it will have to be removed and the wiring that the alarm ties into must be restored to factory design.

How do you find a fuse box for a 2007 mercury milan


under dash to the left of the brake pedal, there is another fuse block in the engine compartment, but ur problem is most likely the blower speed control (located by the blower motor), possibly blower motor or the blend door acuator which blends the warm and cold air it is usualy deep in the dash in the air box. check prices on parts and shoot acordingly some parts are pricy( no need to spend $200
bucks when its a fuse) best of luck!

MY AIR CONDITIONIER ON 97 FORD EXPIDITION BLOWS HOT AIR IN THE FRONT, YOU CAN TURN THE AIR OFF AND THEN BACK ON AND IT WILL WORK SOME TIMES FOR A LITTLE WHILE. SOME TIME IT WORKS OK FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS....


The hot and cold air in the front is controlled by an actuator in the dash. The temp controller is working as designed because the back is working fine. You need to take to local shop to have the vent actuator or heater control box inside changed out. Then the tempaturer controller has to be reset. Good luck

Problem: Ford Windstar SE, 3.8L V6, 1999, front seat heat/defrost is alway cold with engine warm and heater turned on. Symptoms: 1) When (engine is warm and) front seat heat temp slider is moved from...


I would think the door you hear flapping is the door that controls the airflow across the heater coil - and the fan keeps blowing the door closed, preventing the airflow from going across the heating coil. I don't know whether this vehicle is vacum controlled or cable controlled - so either it's a disconnected cable, or a leaking vacum line.

No heat in 97 mercury villager


your heater core may be getting blocked up, or the thermostat may be stuck open at times. you have a few options here, option 1 and 2 cost about the same, option 1: have the thermostat replaced just so you know its working properly, a 97 will most likely not have a telltale way of knowing if the thermostat is bad or going bad. option 2. have the cooling system flushed at a shop. this will try to clear out and debris in the cooling system that may be blocking passages or the heater core. option 3 is the most expensive. have the heater core replaced, the heater core is what provides heat to the hvac system in the dash. a few other things to check would be vacuum lines/actuator/temperature door on your hvac system.
