Question about 1999 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

On my 1999 SEL, the front (top) slide switch for the temperature setting for the heat and AC makes a steady clunking sound when I move it off one spot. I am not able to set it for any other position. How may this be repaired? Thank you!!

Testimonial: "Thank you. Can you tell me how to replace the blend door motor? Is the specification for the blend door motor for the front different from the rear?"

1999 Lincoln Continental heater blows cold air while driving


Sounds like your thermostat may be stuck open. When the wind moves in front of your car, it chills the Radiator and drops the temperature. All the other settings for Heat, like ductwork and waterflow are in the same positions sitting as moving.

Truck will not switch ac to heat is it the switch or something else


Air Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat or no AC (dependes on where door sticks)

In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

Other causes of no heat in the cabin are engine thermostats that are stuck open (engine runs cold) or air bubbles in the cooling system.

1999 GMC Yukon. Rear AC cooling great. Font AC not cooling as well. Replaced orfice syphon tube, vaccumed down and recharged with 2lbs R134a. Checked front temp controller. All checks ok. Front AC still...


If the rear is working well and front is not I would suspect a blend door or actuator issue in the front.Double check and see if you can hear anything moving when you are adjusting temperature from hot to cold.Also check and make sure the air flow moves properly from defrost to vents and floor etc.

Temperature Control not working on 1999 Ford Explorer


Sounds like your temperature actuator is not moving or your temp door is broken. On max a-c ,coolant is shut off to your heater core allowing only cold air in.
