    Which cable? I pulled it apart this summer and couldn't see what was causing the switch to stop midway.

  • John Nov 27, 2013

    there should be a cable coming from the back going to the mixer, follow it to the mixer flap and make sure nothing is jamming it, try disconnecting it and see if it will then turn all the way

  • John Nov 27, 2013

    if theres no cable and only wires then u may need to replace the unit unless u can take it apart and look inside

SOURCE: air conditioner staying on...

Many cars use air conditioning as part of the defrost function. Cold air will clear windshield faster than hot air.

SOURCE: 2004 Honda Accord Air Conditioner Not Working

Sorry for the delayed response. For future reference, the blower motor resistor in an 04' Honda Accord is located under the glove box and a little to the left if you are facing it (the glove box). You just need to pull out the plastic panel (yes, you can just pull it out by hand, no tools needed for that). It should be right on the fire wall with a plug going into it. If you reach in there and pull the plug (it has a little notch so it clips into the resistor more securely; make sure you push the clip in) it should have 4 flat prongs on it that go into the resistor. The resistor itself will have 2 phillips head screws that are holding it into the fire wall. Unscrew them and you have the resistor. If you can unscrew both screws before unplugging, it will be easier to see how it unplugs. I know this sounds complicated but once you get in there you will notice it's fairly easy to change out.

SOURCE: How to pour Radiator stop leak into 1999 VW bug's

I recommend that you do not add this to your radiator unless it is absolutely needed. It will seal the leak, but also seal other passages,especially in the heater core. It will cause more damage in the long run. If the radiator is leaking, replace the radiator.

2005 ford focus mk1 A/C button not working Compressor works since Cold air comes from defroster and heating vents in both sides of the dashboard


A/C Switch Assembly
The A/C switch assembly integrates the A/C request button, RECIRC request button and rear DEFOG button into a single assembly.
The A/C request button is enabled by the blower motor switch. The A/C switch assembly sends a reference signal to the blower motor switch. When the reference signal is grounded (blower motor switch turned ON) the A/C request button is enabled. The A/C request button is disabled when the blower motor switch is in the OFF position. When the A/C request button is activated (indicator ON), an A/C request signal is sent to the PCM. The A/C request button indicator can be toggled on and off when in the FLOOR/DEFROST or DEFROST mode, but an A/C request signal will be sent to the PCM regardless of the indicator status.
When the RECIRC request button is activated (indicator ON), the air inlet mode door actuator will drive to the recirculated air inlet position. When the RECIRC request button is deactivated (indicator OFF), the air inlet mode door actuator will drive to the fresh air inlet position. The RECIRC request button is disabled when in the FLOOR/DEFROST or DEFROST mode.

How can I stop the black pieces of foam from flying out of the heating and cooling vents on my dash, ad well as the defroster. I have a 2003 VW Bug Convertible.


Do you know where the pieces are coming from? It looks like rodent damage to the ventilation system. You could take off the vent grates and run the fan on max until it is all out. If that doesn't work, you'd have to dismantle the ventilation system and clean it out. To stop it happening again, you need to know what caused it. If it is rodents, some traps in the garage or wherever you store your car could help, as could keeping it somewhere else.

I have a 1998 dodge 3500 van. When you turn the air conditioning on it won't let the air come through the vents like it is blocked. It works fine when you have it on fan and defrost


there is vacuum lines that operates door panels in the dash to switch from a/c to defrost i think something came loose or you had something fall throgh vents to stop the door from operating correctly.you need to take the glove box panel out and watch the lever as you switch from defrost to a/c.
