Does the blower fan work and is the engine coolant full?
If your vehichle is not overheating, then you can also likely rule out a sticking thermostat.

Asside from those obvious causes, it would most likely be that the vacume-actuated heater switch on your coolant lines, going to the heater core is stuck (or there may be a vacume leak on the line that activates that switch). This happens as they wear or get clogged from age, and they should be replaced about every 5 to 7 years anyway. On most Ford vehichles, it's a fairly inexpensive part and very easy to replace. In fact, if I were having the same issue, I'd switch out that part whether it was the cause or not, simply to rule it out and keep it reasonably new and working. Also check for any possible vacume leaks on the vacume line that controls that switch.

SOURCE: 1999 Ford Explorer Door Locks

Unfortunately, This is a very common problem with Ford Explorers! Ford replaces the locks when it encounters this issue. I managed to unseize my passanger door and tailgate lock, but the drivers door lock is broken beyond repair. You can purchase new remotes for your explorer and program them very easily. Just google ford key fobs...

I would follow their recommendation as I had the same problem with my car. They unhooked the power to that door and it was fine. The problem was a short in the wiring in the door that was causing the problem. So maybe get them to check the wiring in the door as well.

SOURCE: how to replace blend door actuator in a ford

I recently did mine, I hear you can do it without taking the entire dash apart but I had no luck with it myself. I have to get ready for work but, on mine it was located down and to the left of the radio. its a white box...are you hearing a clicking noise or something? I had to roll the entire dash back and it was still a major pain getting it out.

that clicking noise you hear is likely a relay in the fuse panel that needs to be replaced. the easiest way to find out which relay it is would be to put you finger on each relay as you actuate the device not working. once you locate the clicking relay replace it . to reset the computer just unhook the battery for about ten minutes. if you have an anti theft radio make sure you know the code for it and how to enter it before you unhook the battery.

Air blend actuator 2000 ford explorer is not working?


First, insure you do not have a vacuum leak or bad vacuum check valve. If this is all good, you may have to change actuator and every model has a different way to access this--some require dash removal. If you must do this, get a shop manual as the air bags CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS!

2003 Ford Windstar heater acuator located?


Is the heater not working in the front of the van, but is working in the back? You might mean the 'blend door actuator'. It's not easy to get to. The correct way is to remove the dashboard. Search YouTube for 'Windstar blend door actuator' to get some ideas.

Cant find the door acuator switch on 2001 monte


Air Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat or no AC (dependes on where door sticks)

In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

Other causes of no heat in the cabin are engine thermostats that are stuck open (engine runs cold) or air bubbles in the cooling system.

When the temp control is switched to heat there is a clicking noise under the dash and no heat comes of this. The noise is continues until cold air is turned on.


theres a good possibility that the blend door in heater is bad, or the acuator itself. the reason it works when heat is not on is, the heater blend door does not move so you get cool air. when you turn it to heat the blend door moves over to direct heat in car. if its working properly. good-day ! this is for a 2004 explorer, but i believe that it is the same as a 2005. please go to this site for more info, and how to save a few hundred bucks. www.wiki.answers.com/q/how_do_you_repair_the_heater_on_a_2004_ford_explorer this site is do it yourself in about 45 minutes. but the garage charges 2.5 hours labor. the dash does not have to come out. good-day!

My heat went in my 2004 ford explorer...its blowing colding and there is a knocking noise


The knocking noise is the key. Assuming the coolant level is correct, and the thermostat is working correctly, it sounds like you have a blend door actuator concern. If the knocking noise is coming from the center dash area, the blend door needs to be replaced. The radio and center trim will need to be removed, the blend door removed and the blend door needs to be manually moved to verify heat. Good luck.

The fan works, air conditioning works, but the air wont heat up(knob turns to hot on thermostat). is it a vacuum hose problem, and how do we get to it?


The most common cause of this in the Ranger and the Explorer is that a part called the air temeperature control blend door acuator or the blend door shaft that the electric actuator moves has broken, this door is what shuttles between the heater core and the AC core and provides either heated or cooled air, or a blend of the two hot and cold air streams.

2003 Ford Explorer, does not switch from cold to hot. when i turn it on hot it makes a clicking noise. (heater)


i had the same problem w/ mine...its the blend door acuator which is located in the front under the steering wheel..its a cheap part to buy but its an very expensive job to repair it.

don't take to the dealership since they will charge you anything from about $500 -$1000 to repair it.

If you can find another mechanic to do it, it will be better, or if you can do it yourself.

the part should cost you no more then $100...from the dealership to your local pep boys etc.

Also im having now problems with the back heat blowing cold air...im finding out its also blend door acuators in the back part also!

Good luck

Can not turn on my heat..ford explorer


you may have abad hot /cold blend door acuator.its bolted to air box. also make sure both heater hoses going to heater core are hot,if only one is hot and the other is luke warm or cold then you may have a clogged heater core,remove hoses (@ core) and flush with water hose go both ways a couple of times. good luck hope this helps.
