Question about 1999 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Heat/ac selector knob that selects defrost, etc will not turn to right. When you turn left to blow out the vents, it will not. No matter where you set the temperature you can feel hot air coming out the defrost and down below. You cannot hear the blower blowing but you feel the hot air.

Hello,
You would be wise to check all the small rubber hoses under the hood as it would appear that you have a vacuum leak preventing the airflow door from moving to any other position. Look for cracked /cracking, split hoses or disconnected hoses and replace as necessary.

Good Luck!

99 wrangler air (no AC) only comes out of defrost vents, no matter what selection the knob is on (ie.vent, feet, feet/vent, etc)..what causes this?


Defrost is default mode. You have an electrical/vacuum/blend door motor problem causing this issue.You need the system checked by a pro to determine the failure

The A/C is blowing cold air but why is the blower weak?


Check that you have the selector set to blow out the vents and not the defroster or the vents by the footwells. Does it sound loud like it should be blowing strong or is it weak? The selector 'doors' under the dash work off of engine vacuum lines. If they won't 'select' when you change the knobs, there may be a vacuum line leaking. Also, make sure the blower motor is not all clogged up with leaves and debris.

Ac and heat will not blow threw vents just floor and defrost


Sounds like your selector switch is messed up to select where you want the flow of air to go. When you turn the switch to where you want the air to go does it work on floor and when you turn the switch to vent it doesn't?

You more than likely have a vacuum leak and the louvres are not positioning when selecting.

Dash Vents wont blow as selected


THE COMPRESSOR IS SUPOST TO RUN NOT MATTER IF IS IN HOT OR IN COLD MODE SOME TIME THERE IS A POSITION WHERE THE A/C WILL BE OFF AND THIS IS ON THE KNOB CONTROL WHERE YOU SET DEFROST AR FT VENTS
ALSO ON THE THE SWITCHING FROM DASH TO FLOOR CHECK FOR ANY VACIUM LEAKS FROM THE ENGINE COMPARMENT SINCE MOST OF TIMES THIS IS CONTROLED BY VACIUM ACTUATORS
