My 2009 ford focus air conditioning smells like coolant

It sounds like you may have a slight heater core leak and when you turn on your air, it's simply "stirring up" the smell. I've never seen this issue ina Focus but i have in a '97 Bonneville. The heater core is located behind the dash and requires complete dash removal to locate. It's a rough job to tackle alone. A lot of shops can run a "leak test" where they run a pink dye through your A/C system and see if it leaks anywhere. You may simply have a dry-rotted hose or bad seal. But my bet is the heater core, as thats the only place antifreeze enters the interior of a vehicle. Try smelling up under the dash on the passenger side and see if the smell exists there. If so, it's a heater core leak. Hope this helped!

Airconditioning not working

Check a/c system check valve for pressure - if it's there, then there must be a/c compressor not working or some air duct valves not working( 2 possible reasons : 1. mechanical -you have to take off lower panels of the dash and take a look for loose or not connected parts
2. Electronic - your climate control unit is not working).
Hope this helps.

Heater not working

common to all cars...the heater control valve behind the dash either broken or its stuck. the only way to get to it is tearing the dash apart. or remove the dash out completely. the valve is cheap, cost 40-50 bucks, but its a nightmare to get to it.

Isuzubighorn 3.1 diesel airconditioning goes dead and 4wd, battery and one other light come on in the dash while driving then it come right again. Im guessing a wiring intermitent contact problem has...

Look in the engine bay fuse box and see a square blue relay .swop it with one by it and try again if its ok you need new blue charging relay.

Its job is to cut the aircon relay off if the cars not charging so you dont get a flat battery but they go wrong.

My airconditioning panel does not light up when I put my lights on. The whole dash lights up but not that part. I figure it is a fuse but I dont know which one

Behind the AC control panel is a small light bulb, u will have to pull the panel out and replace that bulb, the bulb is mounted in an equally small twist in socket, u can buy the bulb from VW or most auto parts stores like NAPA or Carquest.

2004 Lincoln Aviator thumping sound

The problem is the rear thermostatic expansion valve (TXV).
It is behind the left rear quarter trim panel.You can pull the panel back to access the valve to make sure that that is the noise.If so you will nedd to have AC system evacuated and replace valve and recharge the system. The part number is YF2Z-19849-AA.
