The blower motor resistor may need replaced. It is located up under the dash on the passengers side. It may be extremely hard to see as you may not be able to get your head up under the dash far enough to see it. There will be a bundle of wires, about 4 or 5 wires that hook into a connector that is plugged into the the blower motor resistor. Two 1/4" screws hold the resistor in place. When you get it out, you will be able to see that it is burnt. It may be the coilspring type, or possibly the circuitboard type. Either way, you should be able to tell if it has burnt through. The replacements are about $25-$35 at your local parts store.

When I turn on the air only hot air blows out. was diagnosed and found that the electric fan mounted on the condenser won't turn on. Fuses and relays check out ok as does coolant. What controls the fan?


Hot wire the fan to the battery...If it fails to go on, the fan itself is bad. You sure the compressor is engaging? Generally even if the fan isn't on, there is enough air going through the grille to keep a/c cool.

2005 KA blowing hot air out when set to cold


start car.turn on air conditioner high cool .raise hood look to see if the compressor clutch is engaged and running.if yes your ac air door could be stuck closed or the air door vacuum actutator not receiving vacuum.a vacuum line is broken or off. or the control switch bad.that control the AC and heater mode. if compressor clutch is not engagged.check for power at compressor clutch.if yes compressor clutch coil open. or the air conditioner refrigerant R 134 is low take car to a private garage with a good reputation. they wont be expensive as the dealership.have them hook car air conditioner to a manifold gauge set to check your refrigerant low side and high side pressure.

With all controls off it blows hot air even on the coldest setting


try this relearn procedure.

turn key on engine not running
set controlls to: vent, tempature cold, fan on low
turn key off
disconnect battery
wait 30 seconds
reconnect battery
turn key on do not start engine
wait 90 seconds while system recalibrates
turn key off
now start the engine and recheck for a/c operation

if this dosent fix the tempature controll than you will need to replace the blend door motor
and it is behind the glove box, it is black and has one plug on it. if you have to replace it make sure
you go through the relearn procedure afterwards.

Ford ka heater blows hot air all the time


Your problem is a faulty heater control valve. The design used on these vehicles allows for hot water to flow constantly and compete with the evaporator as there is no blender door. You have to replace the valve and possibly the control head. Meanwhile, you can bypass the valve to have cold air

Ford ka heater blows hot air all the time


Taurus does not use a heater control valve. It runs coolant thru the heater core constantly. You may have a temp blend door actuator problem or a plugged up heater core is also very common. Feel the heater hoses, they should both be very hot, it one is much cooler; you can try to back flush the core.
