HI. Here is a complete check list that will help you trouble shot thsi issue. You will find the problem in one or more of these areas stated below.

1. Check Drive Belts - The air conditioner utilizes a drive belt that supplies power to rotate the compressor, which is basically a refrigerant pump. If the belt fails the compressor has nothing to drive it, inspect and replace as needed to restore operation. If belt is intact proceed to the next step.

2. Check for Compressor Clutch Engagement - Turn the air conditioner to the "on" position and set controls to the coldest setting. Start the engine and allow to idle. Then open the hood and inspect the clutch at the front of the compressor, is it turning? "Engaged" if so, the system has enough refrigerant to activate. If the system is low on refrigerant it will not work properly. In this case an air conditioner recharge kit is needed to recharge the system. If the system is low on refrigerant it could cycle on and off, making a ticking noise. If the compressor clutch is not turning proceed to next step.

3. Inspect for Refrigerant Leaks - If the system has a large leak and no refrigerant remains it will not activate. First test system for a static pressure charge, with the engine off attach an ac gauge to the low side pressure port and check the state of charge. Depending on outside temperature there should be between 50 psi and 80 psi. (Cool and warm). A refrigerant leak detector is needed to inspect for leak, but if you do not have a leak detector there is an alternative method. The air conditioner system is designed to run with oil suspended in the refrigerant to lubricate the system. Check for oily residue outside the system by inspecting all hoses, compressor, condenser, evaporator or receiver drier and replace any component that has failed.

4. Inspect Fuses - Check under dash panel and under hood power distribution center. Replace failed fuses as needed, recheck system. If the new fuse fails when reinstalled a short circuit is present and requires diagnosing with a wiring schematic, follow circuits to locate short, repair as needed and recheck system.

5. Check Temperature Control Vents - The vents inside your car are controlled by a cable, electrical servo or vacuum servo. If the temperature blend door is not functioning properly it will cause warm air from the heater to exit the vents. To check this start the car and allow the engine idle, next turn the blower motor speed on low, switch the temperature control from warm to cold while your ear is close to the vents. You should hear the door move inside the heater box as it swings from open to close. If not, insect for a vacuum leak or a shorted motor in the servo, repair the leak or replace the servo motor.

You are saying the blower motor stops when the truck stops moving ?
Or the blower motor doesn't work and the only air you get thru the vents is outside air when the truck is moving ?

Heater / air conditioner fan control doesn't engage fan. Previously, it only worked in high speed.


I would replace the blower motor resistor first then see if that corrects this. The resistor is located next to the blower motor under the dash.

Just fix the water pump. and now the air conditioner doesn't work. and just had freon put in.


Since all those things were just out, check the connector at the air conditioner compressor to make sure it is plugged it-also check the radiator fan harness and check if it is plugged in too, since the AC will not run if it is not hooked up.

My 1998 Ford anger xlt has a fuse problem...Air conditioner doesn't work and cigerette lighter doesn't work. Are they on the same circuit? I don't have an owners manual. Thanks


Not sure what you mean when you say an air conditioner problem like if the compressor clutch isn't engaging or the blower motor isn't working, that kind of thing. Anyhow, I am about 99 percent sure they are not in any case. What I did do for you is give you pictures of the fuse layouts as well as the descriptions for each fuse (see below). You mentioned that you didn't have an owners manual. If you would like a copy, email me at csautomotivecars@att.net with your make, model and year and I will be happy to email you a copy. Don't worry, there is no cost for it. I hope this helps and good luck.
