SOURCE: 2005 Ford Freestar rear air electrical

The blend door is stuck or not receiving the control knob information to change the temperature.

Your car uses an electronic blend door actuator. you will need to locate this devise under the dash. You may have to remove the dash to get to it. You will want to make sure that there is power coming in to the new switch and going out to the Blend Door Actuator. If you do not have power to the switch then find out why and fix the broken wire, if you have power to the motor but it won't move then replace the Blend Door Actuator (BDA).

Make sure the black wire to the BDA is grounded. The do the following:
Test the orange wire going to the BDA and the Yellow wire from the BDA to the switch for postive power. This will tell you if the BDA is getting power in from the car and out to the switch. Then make sure you get a power reading from the Red with White strip and the Red with Lite Green strip, this will tell you that the switch is sending the power back to the BDA to control the temp. If power is coming in to the BDA and not going out to the switch then the BDA is bad. If power is going to and from the switch back to the BDA then that also says the BDA is bad. If the ground is broken that will cause the BDA not to respond.

SOURCE: CD stuck in player of 2005 ford freestar

Take another cd and push the stuck one all the way back then try and eject it. If it doesn't come out right away do the process again this time when you hit eject take another cd and push down or up on it. Wiggle it around so it catches the rollers in there. Using CDs with homemade labels causes jams when the stickers peel up.

SOURCE: changed caliper on 2005 ford freestar and now brakes are spongie.

When bleading the brakes have someone there watching to make sure the master cylinder never runs out of brake fluid or all of your time spent bleading them will be waisted.

clock spring in the steering column is my guess. They are delicate and have to do with anything in the steering wheel like airbag, horn, or anything that is operated by buttons on the wheel. These wires have to turn constantly with the steering wheel and the "clock spring" goes bad often enough

Remove the fan while coolant is draining into a bucket. Remove the belt. Once that's all out of the way you can get to the water pump. Remove the lower radiator hose from the pump and the water line to the heater core from the pump. Now remove the securement bolts and remove the water pump.

How 2005 ford freestar radio diagnostic test


There isn't what you would call a test per se. If you have power to the unit, and a good ground, the radio should work. If the cassette or CD functions, but nothing but static from radio, suspect a faulty antenna or lead. Ford radios are well known for failure after a few years, especially in areas with hot, humid climates. I've replaced a bunch of them!

How do you remove the radio from a 2005 Ford Freestar?


You have to purchase a tool to remove it. they are "U" shaped They are inexpensive. there are two of them, they go into the two holes on each side of the radio. push them until you hear a click, then usually you can pull the radio out with them. sometimes they need help, use a screwdriver and gently pry it out.

2004 freestar can't turn the radio up or down it


I would question your children " if you have any" if they have put anything in the cd slot, I work at a dealership and we find a lot of problems with the van radios are very nice children like to play and put small change into the cd slot, which shorts out the internal components of the radio, if you remove the radio, dash piece just pops off then 4 screws hold radio in, and shake it you should not hear anything rattling around in it.
