That light may be related to the issue you have. locate the blower motor relay it's under the dash. replace that. there is one other issue that may be causing it. there is a resister block mounted on the duct work for the heat/ac near the fan. it's held in with a couple screws and there is a wiring plug attached to it. I would replace the relay first as this will likely solve the problem. if it does not the resister block has failed.

The problem u are having with the blower staying on is the blower motor speed control resistor is defective/shorted, as far as the beeping goes unless u see a light flash on that indicates a system problem it could be anything from a defective Body control module to a door ajar switch, the the module function can be actively tested with a special scanner by the Ford dealer, this might Trace the problem down with the beep noise. here is how u replace the blower motor speed control resistor. The resistor is located right next to the blower motor behind the passenger side glove box and is held into the air ducting by two 8mm headed screws, to access the resistor u must remove the glove box insert/compartment and drop the glove box door down, very easy, the whole job is a 3 on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the most difficult, here also is a part number and a picture of the part for easier ID, the part is rectangular and is about 3/4"X 2"

2008 ford expedition front ac heater

I will try to answer and offer you a couple of choices based on 2 different potential problems.

The blower motor resistor is the control for both the heater fan blower and the A/C since they are the same blower motor. It is the boost that you need to feel either heat or A/C through the vents. The part can be traced from the heater blower wires under the hood to a control about the middle of the Firewall. 2 bolts hold it in place with 1 connector wire. But a heater line will likely block access to switching the part. It is often a part that tapping will start it working again.

Another A/C intermittent problem is low Freon. A certain pressure will engage the A/C compressor switch. Since outside air temperature can boost the internal pressure remaining in your A/C system, every time it expands the Freon; your system may work.

Can not find heater control valve 2000 expedition

what year? for 2000, there are no control valves. It mixes a/c air with heater core air to blend the right temp.

SECTION 412-02: Heating and Ventilation 2000 Expedition/Navigator Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Heating/Defrosting The heating and defrosting system has the following features:
  • Controls the temperature and, during A/C operation, reduces the relative humidity of the air inside the vehicle.
  • Delivers heated or cooled air to maintain the vehicle interior temperature and comfort level.
  • Controls the A/C blower motor speed.
  • Cooling or heating can be adjusted to maintain the desired temperature.
  • Uses a reheat method to provide conditioned air to the passenger compartment.
  • The blower motor draws outside air through the A/C recirculating air duct, except for MAX A/C cooling, when recirculated air is used.
  • All airflow from the blower motor passes through the A/C evaporator core.
  • The temperature is then regulated by reheating a portion of the air and blending it with the remaining cool air to the desired temperature.
  • The temperature blending is controlled by the temperature blend door, which regulates the amount of air that flows through and around the heater core, where it is then mixed and distributed.

Where is the electronicnautomatic temperature control module located on a 05 ford 150

I assume you have checked all fuses. It could be the heater control switch , the blower motor resister , I would start testing if power is getting pass the switch to the blower motor.

1999 FORD EXPEDITION intermittantly will not start.

You have a bad starter. A faulty starter will function when its cold but when it heats up, it takes more energy to get the starter to engage. Your problem is exhibiting the classic symptoms of a bad starter. I hope this solves your problem and the best of luck to you.

Heater/ 1999 expedition Eddie Baur

the problem is caused by a sticking air temperature control blend door and or a defective intermittent blend door actuator motor, very common failure on this truck.

I recently had the modulator replaced in my 2006 Expedition Limited. $210 CDN.

It was doing exactly the same thing. Apparently the part is only $70 CDN but the rest of the bill is labour. It was done by a reputable mechanic too, so I think that bill should be close to the best price out there.

Good luck, Ian
