Question about 1996 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

1995 Ford econoline conversion van. (It's an Anaheim Van. They were in Houston, but went out of business.) The rear fan system doesn't blow out the top any more - only out at the floor. I've taken apart the ducting enough to see that it isn't blocked. What should I do?

    No way anyone has replaced the blower motor or changed the wiring to the motor.
    And I don't think that the wires could have been reversed. Maybe it's some kind of fuse that's blown? The weird thing is that the rear ac still gets cool, but neither it nor the vent setting (on dashboard slider switch) gets any air to come out the top vents - in both cases warm air (maybe it's the warm air that comes off of the AC - if it's making cold air, it has to dump heat somewhere) comes out of the one floor vent. The floor setting also blows air out the floor vent, so it's not like the floor vs. upper vent circuits were switched.

Hello Scott.

I can't help but wonder if someone has replaced the blower motor or changed the wiring to the motor.
Perhaps the wires have been reversed? In a DC wired motor this can happen.
Hope your repair goes well.
Thank you for using FixYa.

    I have gone through the All-data service manual and it doesn't show me the rear heater case or the operation of it.
    I did find however a vacuum diagram.
    It shows a vacuum line that is hooked up to the front heater control and it may be the source of the problem. If this vacuum hose is broken or pinched it may not allow the proper movement of the doors in the rear heater/AC case.
    Did you come across any vacuum lines in your search?

    O yes, the diagram indicated the line is blue.

Generally you would need to check the level of freon in the system, and probably the expansion valve in the rear unit. You should have one hot and one cold ac line going to each evaporator.

Front fan motor for heat and air does not blow.

The fact that your fan started working by itself makes me suggest that your problem could be a blower motor resistor switch. You can look up the location with an internet search using your year and make of vehicle and the part name.

If your van is equipped with this part it has a history of intermittent operation across many product lines. Although many parts stores do not allow electrical parts to be returned if they are not needed, the part has electrical connections which can be plugged in to test the part before installing. The effects should be immediate.
