Defrost is usually the default/resting position for interior vents. you probably have a cracked/broken vacuum line between the climate control unit and the vent actuator

    Check:

    Vacuum lines on engine, vacuum ball, plastic heater core valve (mine was cracked), each vacuum solenoid under the dash. You will need a hand vacuum pump available at any auto parts store to determine whats holding vacuum and whats not. I also had a bad control solenoid (near the gas pedal). Remove the radio and glovebox to access vacuum line manifold. Your can check all the under dash components from that one spot.

My 2001 ford ranger heater blows out cold air,what might be my problem??


If you are sure the engine is getting up to temperature then your problem will be a part called the electrically positioned blend door and or the little motor that moves the blend door. The blend door moves back and forth between the AC core and the heater core to provide a mix of hot and cold air or hot or just cold depending on what you set the air temperature control at, blue being cold and red being hotter. This is all to common a problem on Ford rangers and Explorers which share the same components of the heating and AC systems. When the door fails it is usually on the cold setting position. The kicker here is that you must remove the dash to replace the parts, the blend door and the blend door actuator motor should both be replaced at the same time, the common reason for the motor to fail is a sticking hard to move blend door due to warping of the plastic it is made from.

05 ford ranger 3.0......if I put my thermostat on cold...the vent blows hot air..on max ac..its cold air..makes no sense right....help


Cold air like, really cold or just cool. Sounds like your hot/cold blend door motor has perhaps failed with the blend door in the semi hot position. Blend door motor failure is very common on the Ford truck HVAC systems. Is is located behind the glovebox on top of the HVAC housing assembly.

I have a 2000 ranger and the heat only works on the defrost setting. No other vents work. Will this also effect A/C(no cold) or maybe that just needs recharged.


If you aresaying all the air, hot or cold, comes out the defrost, then you have a vacuum leak from the engine vacuum hose, the vacuum reservoir, or at the control head inside the truck.

Air conditioning and heating problem


The blend door actuator is vacuum driven. It sounds like you have a vacuum leak. Trace the vacuum lines starting at the firewall in front of the passenger side. With the heater or AC on HIGH and directed at the front vents, listen for a leak or trace the vacuum line back ward to try to find a leak. All the best.

2006 Ranger heater doesn't work but AC does.


Possible blend door issue. Either the blend door is stuck, or the actuator that is suppose to open and close the door is broken / no longer working. Common problem, and causes a LOT of headaches.

No heat, when I turn on heater- all cold air flows out


sounds like you have a stuck blend door in the HVAC system. If its not controled by vacuum the servo motor is bad or the vacuum line is bad. This door moves back and forth to go from vent to floor to defrost. and you have one to go from cold side to hot side. Hope this helps you
