Question about 2001 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Hi the heater on my Ford KA is only blowing out cold air even when turned to hot on the control knob. I recently had problems with it blowing out only hot air all the time and had a new solanoid fitted but now just blows cold. I was lead to believe it needs a new heater control panel? does this sound about right? i am at my tether with this as there are so many possibilities. Can anyone help?

Sounds like whoever did the repair work did not install the solenoid correctly or did not reassemble everything properly. If you had heat prior to the repair, the heater control panel must have been working. The mechanic must make a better diagnosis than this.

Heater blowing cold air


There are only 2 reasons for a problem like yours. Either the water is not going through the heater core or the ductwork under the dash has a problem. For checking the water flow, warm the truck up and then feel both water hoses connected to the heater core. They should both be hot if the water is flowing. If they are both as warm, then the problem is inside the cabin under the dash. If they are not equally warm, there is a problem with water flow.

Tip- For a time the manual heat control models(Not electronic) used a heater knob which could break on the backside of the knob. When it does this, the heater control shaft will not turn as the knob is just spinning in place. Gently pry the knob off and then twist the control shaft to see if it will now work.

There is a vacuum operated actuator that is in the venting system When you switch your control knob, a vaccum pressure is applied to this actuator. Then the actuator moves a flap that controls the warm air/cold air flow. The flap can get stuck, or the actuator can become leaky or weak

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.
