Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Ford uses an archaic resistor pack that controls the heat/cooling output. If this goes you get very little heat or AC.
Its generally in the air vent under the dash--it has 2 wires you just twist and unclip--the resitors and wires rust--it looks like something out of a 1930 tractor.
Anyway its about $20 from Ford--the part number is FMC4L3Z19A706AA--thats for a 99-01 Expedition; I was told there all the same--

We are going through the same problem, our ac stopped working about 3 yrs ago, we have had it checked out 3 times by different mechanics and they all scratch their head with no idea of the problem. We have no blower but you can feel a little heat and air coming out. We have been reading the boards and it appears this is a pretty common problem in these cars, along with a few other things I won't go into, we have heard the blower motor thermal resistor, we just replaced it, $20 at ford, did not fix the problem. Next we will try to replace the ac heater blower switch which involves removing the radio. This part is $66 at Ford but there also seems to be a blower motor switch that maybe different and cheaper, still checking out this. Let us know if you find an answer.
