Question about 2004 Ford F250

1 Answer

My a/c will not go into the recirculation mode on my 04 f250 any ideas???

A/C will not go into the recirculation mode. I feel that the a/c is not any colder than when its running on normal. I don't feel a difference in the temperature or the speed of the air coming out of the vent like before. I just had all my a/c system redone new compressor, new condenser, new dryer, new orifice tube for severe climate it blows very cold as I'm running down the road but as soon as I'm in town it warms up again..

SOURCE: intermittent air coming from vents switching from

OK, the vacuum motor behind the dash has an 'actuator' that flips the plastic door up or down depending on whether the system calls for cold or hot air. There's something wrong with this system.

All of the things you replaced have nothing to do with the actuator door position. All of the things you replaced have to do with how cold the evaporator gets behind the dashboard as well.

The problem is not that, it's the flow of cold air to the human driving the car that's the problem.

The evaporator could be ice cold, but if air doesn't flow across its fins and get to the vents, then the driver will never feel cold air.

Good luck on having the problem fixed properly.

How to replace an air inlet actuator on 2007 Pontiac Vibe 1.8 Liter Engine


Recirculation Control The recirculation control determines the air intake through the recirculation actuator. When the recirculation switch is pressed, a signal is sent from the switch to the recirculation actuator through the recirculation signal circuit. When the actuator receives the signal, the actuator moves into the recirculation mode. This circulates air from inside the vehicle instead of fresh air from the outside. Recirculation is available in any mode and can be selected with the blower motor in either the ON or OFF position.
Air Inlet Valve Actuator Replacement
Removal Procedure
  1. Remove the Instrument Panel (IP) compartment. Refer to Instrument Panel Compartment Replacement .
remove the glove box
Remove the connector (2). Remove the two screws (1) and the air inlet actuator (3) from the HVAC module.

I am an 04 F250 with a V10 and the engine is shaky. I have changed out the fuel filter, spark plugs, coil packs, and mass airflow sensor and nothing has fixed it yet. Please if someone has any other ideas...


Run the fault codes to find faulty sensors/.servos/injectors. Check the orientation of the plug leads to see if any are crossed. Have a compression test done to check for gasket/valve problems. Check and adjust idle speed

The heat in my 2006 grand prix will not get hot. We replaced the thermostat and got nothing. So I got the radiator flush and force filled again. Still nothing. Temp of the motor still gets to the middle,...


Are the 2 tubes that go to the heater core getting hot? If so, then the blend door is not opening to allow heat to get to the cabin.

Possible vacuum motor problem, either disconnected, or the controller for the blend door is broken is likely problem.

Troubleshooting by Symptom Poor Heater System Performance CAUTION
Check all fluid levels and adjust as needed, before operating vehicle for extended periods at idle.
  1. Start the engine.
  2. Idle the engine until the thermostat opens (upper radiator hose will be hot) Is the engine at normal operating temperature (approx. 200° F)? If yes, go to the next step. If no, go to step 16.
  3. Set the mode selector to FLOOR mode.
  4. Set the heater control selector to the warmest temperature setting.
  5. Set the blower speed the lowest setting.
  6. Carefully feel the inlet and outlet heater hoses at the heater core. Is the inlet heater hose significantly hotter than the outlet heater hose? If yes, go to step 14. If no, go to the next step.
  7. Set the mode selector to PANEL mode.
  8. Select the maximum blower speed.
  9. Select the warmest temperature setting.
  10. Place a thermometer into the center I/P PANEL air outlet and affix a second thermometer to the heater core outlet heater hose.
  11. Record the temperature at the center I/P PANEL air outlet and at the heater core outlet heater hose. Are the two temperature readings about equal? If yes, go to the next step. If no, go to step 13.
  12. Inspect and repair the cowl, cowl area, recirculation door, and the HVAC evaporator/heater core case for cold air leaks. Repair any problems found, go to step 17.
  13. Inspect the temperature door operation. Repair any problems found, go to step 17.
  14. Turn OFF the engine. Back-flush the heater core. Start the engine. Select the FLOOR mode and the lowest blower speed. Select the warmest temperature setting. Feel the temperature of the inlet and outlet heater hoses at the heater core. Is the inlet heater hose feel significantly hotter than the outlet heater hose? If yes, go to the next step. If no, go to step 17.
  15. Replace the heater core. When the repair is completed, go to step 17.
  16. Check for low engine temperature problems, Repair or replace as needed, go to step 17.
  17. Operate the system in order to verify the repair. If the system operates properly, the repair is complete. If the heater still does not work properly, repeat the entire procedure.

2004 f250 diesel parking brake will not set after making a POP sound, seems to be inside the cab at the location of the foot pedal to set brake. Can it be reset or what is the fix?


Reach under the cab by the drivers door and grab the park brake cable. Does it feel floppy loose? The cable may have broke, if that's the case the cable will have to be replaced and it's not a fun job. I don't know on an '04 but, I did an '01 a while back, I would think they're the same. You have to remove the computer to get at the bolts that hold the park brake assembly in place. Yes, the park brake pedal assembly has to be removed to change the cable.

When i press the ac button it blinks three times but does not turn on. 2007 Tahoe LT


If your vehicle is equipped with automatic climate control, this should help.

Recirculation Operation
The HVAC control module controls the air intake through the recirculation actuator. The recirculation switch closes the recirculation door in order to circulate the air within the vehicle. The outside air switch opens the recirculation door in order to route outside air into the vehicle. Regardless of the blower motor switch position, recirculation is available only in the panel and bi-level mode switch positions. Including the OFF position. The mode switch must be placed in either the panel or bi-level position before the blower motor switch is placed in the OFF position. In order to reduce windshield fogging, outside air is circulated when the mode switch is in the defrost or defog positions. If the recirculation switch is pressed into the ON position when the mode switch is in an unavailable mode position, then the recirculation switch LED will flash 3 times. If the HVAC control module detects a fault with the recirc door the HVAC control module will try to drive the actuator for a predetermined amount of time, to outside air, which is the defaulted position for the recirculation actuator

04 f250 wont start - with new battery


Sounds to me like you might have one of two problems, and one is an easy fix, while the other might require a mechanic.

Option 1: Check Your Cables. If you have a loose ground cable, then you might be able to tighten it and reestablish a good ground. Also, check the wiring to your starter and alternator.

Option 2: Check The Starter Solenoid. This one might require a mechanic. It sounds like your solenoid isn't getting enough juice, or it doesn't have enough capacity to fire it off without added current. If this is the case, get your solenoid checked.

Good luck!

Ford F250 EGR problem


The EGR valve (Exhaust Gas Recirculator) provides a path from ******** to nose of your engine, returning some of the exhaust fumes to the intake to supposedly improve tailpipe emissions.
Uh huh, I agree. Seems like a stupid idea and each car I have cheated (that couldn't tell I was cheating) has gained a little on gas mileage but never as much as 10%.
Your Ford apparently has a sensor to rat you out if you cheat it so the quantity of fumes isn't satisfying that sensor.
This could mean that the EGR is clogged (it's a small hole passing dirty exhaust fumes), failed, or the vacuum line that controls it is cracked or otherwise broken.
