Question about 1995 Ford Explorer

No cold air when A/C on but climate control works in controlling heat

I have a 1995 Ford Explorer. The automatic climate control work fine with heat and blows fine, but no cold air comes out when I put the A/C on. Is this a compressor problem or could there be another problem?

    Thanks for all your advice. I added refrigerant but it did not work. However, I noticed that the clutch would engage on and off continuously, never stay on continuously. I imagine this may be a control issue as well.

Your problem is most likely that the AC system is low on refrigerant. Your Explorer takes R-134A refrigerant which is available over the counter. It's not a very difficult process to add refrigerant but if your uncomfortable doing it yourself, most service centers will service your AC for under $100 assuming no leaks are detected. Best of luck on your AC problem.

The first check to perform is to see if the compressor is cutting on.... you should be able to hear the engine struggle a bit when the ac is first cut on, or watch the clutch (built into the compressor pulley) begin to spin when the AC is switched on. If it does cut on, likely causes include refrigerant leak or internal system failure. If the compressor is not cutting on, it is a control issue, and some electrical tests must be performed.

I replaced the heat blend actuator because I was not getting any heat. Now, after replacing, all I get is hot air and no cold. The A/C was working fine just before replacing.


Do you have Manual Climate Control System or Dual Automatic Temperature Control System ?
The temperature control switch:
  • is a potentiometer that outputs a variable voltage to the temperature blend door actuator to set the position of the temperature blend door.
  • initiates closing of the heater control valve. When set to full COOL, a lever on the temperature blend door pivot shaft depresses the pintle of the heater control valve vacuum switch. The heater control valve vacuum switch then applies vacuum to the heater control valve, closing off engine coolant flow to the heater core.
  • is serviced only with the climate control assembly.
You may have disturbed something when changing the actuator , the vacuum switch o vacuum hose .

I have a 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada with automatic climate control that blows cold air in the winter and hot in the summer. The thermostat is working fine and it doesn't need flushed. There are no le


It sounds like the system is fried. Based on the description, it is just pulling in the outside air and not doing anything to heat or cool the flow. Unfortunately, this is a job for your preferred mechanic.

make sure your heater core is in good condition this could be done with a compression test, if that is fine i would make sure the climate control switch is working proper and not shorting between cold and hot

Heater hot/cold control knob doesn't work need to have the hot air.


Check the motor on the top of the heater plenum. It turns a shaft to shift the blender door which controls the input to this plenum either the heater core or the evaporator core (ac). You may find the motor is OK but the shaft (plastic) has broken and the blender door has to be replaced. This is a costly job that involves removing this plenum after removing the dash. A shortcut I found online was to cut a hole under the blender door and replace it through this opening. After replacing you can seal up the hole with epoxy. I cut three sides of a square hole leaving the back uncut. Pull down and the blender door can be removed. My problem was on a 1997 Explorer. _6.gif

No heating inside, just blows out cold air.


check your coolant- if it is low, top it off. you could have an air bubble or the heater core could be clogged. if not the air mode door in the heater box might not be moving. that is the hardest and last to check

Heat and air does come from vents


check the vacuum supply to the control head switch, if it is automatic climate control u may have a defective control head, replace the entire unit.
