It is probably either a bad compressor clutch or the system has lost its fluid and the low pressure switch is keeping it from coming on. If you track the AC lines on one of them you will see a sensor with a plug connected to it. Start the car turn the AC to max, blower also. Then unplug the connector on the pressure switch and jump the wires in the connector. Use a flat head screwdriver if the connector has exposed pins or a paperclip if the pins are inside little tubes. If you do this and the compressor kicks on then you have lost your refrigerant and have to bring it to be leak tested. If it doesn't come on then it is probably the AC compressor clutch.

    I hear a click and then it went down. I took it to the mechanic. The same one who has th warranty in the compressor and he is lossong money as well with htis part. He has changed it 3 times already and is going for the fourth one. He can't believe that this is happening this often. First time installed was in Sep 7, 2012. then it burned again after 2 weeks, then after one or two months. By December it has been changed 3 times. It last until now, that I start using it more, heat really started this year late, last three weeks. We had many jet streams comming up, so I didn't needed as often as now and just burn down again two days ago May 30,2013. So total of four times has been replaced with a new on, under the 1 yr. warranty of course, in 8 comple months. This is too much !! Does it is really bad parts provider or it is something else that my mechanic hasn't catch up ?,

2003 ford explorer sport trac blower motor and switch not getting any power, it was working fine a while ago and i had to start flipping the switch to head then off then back to head, what is wrong?


The selector switch on the dash controls the blower motor relay, then the fan switch controls the speed. The fan switch gets power from a 40amp fuse and the control panel gets power from two other fuses.
If you are working the control switch to get the fan to work, the control switch may be failing.
