Question about 1997 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

AC dead? Acting strange like a Stephen King novel

My AC is not dead per se... it's just acting weird. It won't blow through the main vents, only in the dash vents up near the windshield. And suddenly the fan in the back seat is making a loud roaring noise (loud like a motorcycle) when I cut the AC on in the back portion of the van. I want to get in there and fix this. I already tore out the back fan and am trying to tweak it into correction, but I don't even know where the main AC terminal would be and I'm not sure why it would suddenly route only to the top vents by the windshield. Anyone got a clue?

Do not interfere with this AC system ,you may be able to change the fan motor but be careful with the AC pipes ,if the pipe cracks and gas escapes it can cause frostbite in about 1 sec flat .Now the most likely cause of the air flow in the front not working correctly is because either its got a split rubber pipe that connects to the operating valves or the diaphram in one of the valves has split which means a replacement operating valve ,if you listen carefully you mey be lucky and hear a hiss somewhere

2007 jeep gc won't start. Lights, battery all Dash lights had been acting strangely before this happened. Turned the car off, Swapped AC relay with starter relay and nothing.


i guess you mean starter is dead, and all lights dead.
pointing to....
the battery is dead, did you jumper cable start it?
if that works the battery is bad, dead or only dischanged.
if that dont work make sure the battery cable lugs are cleaned.
no rust on cable ends( that green junk there that all cars get)
if the head lamps die (they work key off so...)
then the battery is dead, or rusty lugs.
if battery is dead, charge it. using a charger.

My AC is not working properly. Any ideas?


Check your blend door actuator. It is a very common issue. These links should be helpful:

AC problem


its probably a stuck servo motor on the vent positioning if its automated but if its cable type, maybe the cable is loose.
