    Added note for solution #1. In step three of directions a screw driver was used to pry up and unclip the actuator box. My 1998 Ranger was secured with screws. If yours is too, then an offset or mini scewdriver will need to be used to remove the actuator.

Heater stop working on 98 f150ford


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.

My 2005 ford explorer has a a/c problem. it doesn't blow very cold air, it's not hot but not real cold either. the funny thing is when i turned on the dual climate control it was alot colder on...


If your a/c is cooling at all...
you need to NOT check refrigerant
levels ANYMORE... Every-time you do that
you are venting it... out (creating other issues)... STOP.

YOUR description is indicating
blend-door actuator issues...

Parts are available... You will need to get
into your DASH to find which actuator is failing


Then BUY the parts below... (not expensive)
http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/ford,2005,explorer,4.6l+v8,1430690,heat+&+air+conditioning,heater+blend+door+actuator,10721

Click on the "INFO" button of each to see how they differ
and their applications...

Example:
hot/cold blend door...
More Information for FOUR SEASONS 37535

Real FACTORY+WORKSHOP+REPAIR manuals
will actually show you the BEST/FASTEST way to
open up your dash to test, repair or replace these parts.

Heat only works on level 3 for two weeks, now heat does not blow at all, help cold in Michigan


Without proper Diagnosis its hard to tell what it is but I can take a guess at it.
Based on what information you have it sounds like you have a blend door Issue, now what that issue is could just be the solenoid that opens and closes the blend door itself could be bad. or it could even be the blend door itself that may be sticking.

Your best bet is to take it into a Repair garage and have them find out what it is.

Hope this helps a little bit.

THOSE VEHICLE HAVE SEPARATE BLEND DOORS THAT CONTROLS HOW MUCH HEAT/COLD YOU WANT. BLEND DOORS ARE FLIMSY AND TEND TO BRAKE AFTER A WHILE. THE ONLY WAY TO FIX IS BY REPLACEING THE BEND DOOR (S).EXPENSIVE REPAIR. WHOLE DASH HAS TO COME OUT. PART IS CHEAP BUT A LOT OF LABOR
