More than likely there is a lose conection on one of your switches that control the ac/heat. You will have to pull the part of the dash where they are and make sure that one of the conectors did not come loose. You may have to get a new switch or conector to completly fix the issue.

Having a fuel filter problem

It sounds as if you have a problem in the switcher valve. Make sure front tank is full! There is a problem with the way these are origionally set up. I have seen where the guages showed full but were empty. If the valve is damaged it coould have been using the front tank with the rear also, although it is not supposed to happen it did on this particular truck.You may also want to check and make sure the fuel is clean in that tank.

Gas gauge works intermittently-1996 Hyundai Accent

Two things here.Its either theres a bad ground from the tank to the frame or the fuel sending unit in the tank is not working properly...Give all the ground wires from the fuel pump harness up to the motor..Make sure not corroded.If all the wires are good than its the fuel sender in the tank..Hope this helps you find your problem and have a great day...

Fuel guage-1991 ford aerostar

2 things.
There is a sensor that goes from the dash to the fuel pump. If it is disconnected, dirty, or faulty, then thats an easy fix.
There is also a float in the gas tank itself. From what Ive been told after time, or going over big speed bumps, etc, that the float just simply doesnt float or register.
Mine actually shows I have a full tank or im empty at all times. No in between.

No heat when temp goes below freezing, gas leak when tank is full

The reason that the shops keep insisting on a low tank is because gasoline weighs about 7.5 lbs per gallon. It's too heavy to remove full. Aside from that, most shops just don't have a place to temporarily store that much fuel! You almost certainly have a leak on the top of the tank, either from the sending unit seal, a hose or the tank itself, which is why it only leaks when full. The location can only be determined after the tank is taken down and inspected. Though most warrantys cover 90days from when work is done, any reputable shop will usually correct this type of problem for free, Unless there was a problem they saw, told you about and you refused to allow them to correct.
With regards to your heating problem: From your post, it sounds like the blower motor may have failed.(going over a bump would free it up) However, the motor itself would have been noisy before it got this bad. I don't see a corrolation between ambient temp and that though. Is the blower running when this happens? Also, If you don't have a proper antifreeze mixture, the heater core could be freezing up, but this would generally correct itself as the vehicle warms up. With limited info, I would not rule anything out yet!
Good lucki

2003 Expedition jerking/cutting out.

Had same problem: cutting out at low rpm, jerking, a huge clunk or shudder at higher speed (like transmission was going out), and rough idle. All these symptoms were intermittent.

CHECK THE FUEL FILTER!! Changed the fuel filter and thing runs fine!!
