Question about 2000 Ford Escort

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Ford Excort. The air condition stopped working. At first it would work and then heat would come out of the vents. Now the air conditioner doesn't work at all. Could it be a fuse?

    Thank you very much for your possible solution. I will try it. I have a friend that could help me. I really don't have the funds to go to an air conditioner expert. You may hear from me again.

It could be just a blown fuse problem, but if not here are some suggestions.

First, make sure that your fuses are good,
that the AC control switch in the dash is in functioning order.
That the AC system is holding coolant (have a person with AC
knowledge check this for you!) on a gauge.

If all the above are ok, then here's the place to start....
See if the AC Clutch is engaging, if so don't read any further unless
the AC only work's on occasion, and/or not at all.
If this is the case, check the CCRM module.
It's located under the Air filter housing.
It has a number of wires going into it and is roughly 3x5x2 inches
in dimensions by recollection.

If you open it up, usually the smallest relay has a bad
solder will take a mechanically inclined person about
an hour and a half to fix and re-install. I've actually replaced the
relay (again the smallest of the 5 in the CCRM module) with a $5.00 relay
from radio shack and worked flawlessly there after. The Radio Shack part
was identical but Grey in color. I am not promoting doing this, so if you
wish to pursue this fix, you'll have the take apart the CCRM and remove the
smallest relay and take it with you to Radio Shack. For that match up, its
that simple.

Incidentally, the simplest fix is this, just re-solder the original relay
and try it before removing it...I've fixed 3 and all 3 had the same bad
connection, the one closet to the outside corner. That fixed 2 without
incident there after.

Again, if you are not a techy person for this job, I suggest you should just bring you car to air con expert or at any ford dealer near you.

Heat fan not working in 2001 ford escape

GM uses vaccum to operate the blend doors on their heating and air conditioning systems. There is either a cracked hard plastic line or a cracked, unplugged vaccum line somewhere. If you have done any work to the vehicle latelt I would start by looking there first.
