Question about Ford Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

We have a 2002 Ford 150. Since we got our 4x4 fixed at the repair shop, we do not have AC coming through the vents. The AC comes out of the defrost and lower vents. If we put the digital climate control on vent then we have air coming through the vent. We changed out the climate control with a different one and noticed one of the vacuum lines missing. Is this suppose to be this way? How can we find a diagram to see why the AC is not coming through the vents?

The vents are operated by vacuum. if you are short a vacuum line that would be the problem.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Expedition Climate Control System

you have a loss of vacuum. There is a small diameter black plastic tube from the engine compartment that feeds the climate controls. Check at back of control head, or there is a plastic connector under dash were other color tubes join to operate the other actuators of the system the black tube must have vacuum when engine is running. check under hood the black tube is spliced. separate the tube and check for vacuum The tube enters the firewall near the heater hoses.

SOURCE: climate control system only blow air out defrost vent

there is a good chance that you blend air door is stuck closed over your heater core and therefore not allowing the heat to flow, also your door that opens and close your direction of flow from the floor ,das,vent and defrost.your going to have to remove the lower cowling of the dash on the passenger side analso some of the center dash to actually check to see if the cable,servo motors. are acuating the doors.the issue could be just a stuck door or a misaligned cable or that it came off. that falls under the mechanical side of probabilities. electrical would most likely be a faulty selector switch or a servo motor

SOURCE: heating / air conditioning control stuck to front defrost vents

There is a vacuum leak under the hood. Find the vacuum line on the passenger side where it comes through the firewall and follow it to the engine. You system needs vacuum to operate and without it the default setting is on defrost for safety reasons.

SOURCE: climate control is on defrost only the auto

Check your vacuum pump located on the right side fenderwell. see if its running. Check the vacuum hose at the hubs for leaks or damage. repair if damaged. check for other vacuum leaks such as the grey hose going to the heater control valve.

first check to see if you have power going to the actuators when you switch the switch to it location if no power replace controller if you have power and no movement from actuators replace actuator. if actuators move remove hvac box and check for broken blend doors.

Most of A/C air is coming out of defrosting vent. Could there be a switch malfunct.


Do an internet search for "blend door repair" - - - the blend doors direct air thru the heater core and evaporator core along with the vents.

The ac on my 1998 ford ranger only blows out the defrost vent and floor vent. How do I fix it?


Almost sounds like the actuators are inop. depending on which style you have, some are electrical motors and some are vacuum. These control the mode doors which move to deflect air to various vents.

I took my 2002 ford explorer for a detail yesterday. It came back with the ac not coming out of the main vents. It works on defrost but not in the front four vents. Got any ideas


Your blend door is not operating properly. The blend door directs the air where it is supposed to go based on the settings you tell it, vent, defrost, floor, etc.

I am guessing here as I don't know which control unit you have, but I believe you may have the one like in the video and the video shows the repair you will need to make. Hope it helps.

2002 vue early production 4 cyl. Heating/AC vents - no output


Hi there, Sounds like a vent door switch. It's in your dash and it controls the vent door opening and closing and to which duct the air goes to, defrost, face vents, floor. Best thing to do is buy a Haynes or Clinton's repair shop manual at your local AP store for your particular vehicle. Then read up on it in the trouble shooting section or the step by step RR section. You can purchase these at your local Auto Parts store or buy them on line at ebay burdfrenzy

Ac not cooling well - noticed 2 days ago steam coming out of ac vents.


That was probably not steam but escaping freon coming from the vents. Probably the best course of action would be to take it to an AC repair shop.
