Question about 2001 Ford Ranger Regular Cab

1998 F-150 4x4 AC always on?

Hi can anyone help me with this problem? My AC is always on. The only time it goes off is when the heater control is set to off or panel. In the Floor, Panel/Floor or Defrost settings AC is always pumping I would like to fix this problem I'm using more fuel with the AC always on. When I have the heat on the AC keeps pumping. Lots of heat just the compressor wont turn of it shouldn't run when the heat is on. Now I disconnected the electrical connector on the compressor clutch cycling switch and this makes the AC pump turn off. So I think the problem is before this? Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance. My Ford Ranger is always blowing cold air out of the vents, even when I don't have the AC on. It's killing my gas mileage. How do I know where to start?

My Ford ranger does this too. It's been a while since I read on this but if I'm not mistaken I think this is normal.

It is most likely your fuel pump. Same thing happened with me.

SOURCE: Problem with air not coming out of vents.

Check for a vacum leak from the engine to the a/c.The color of the hose is black. Also check if the heater control valve hose is unplugged. If you have vacuum the it sounds like the door for the vent/floor/defrost is broken.

The blend door actuator is vacuum driven. It sounds like you have a vacuum leak. Trace the vacuum lines starting at the firewall in front of the passenger side. With the heater or AC on HIGH and directed at the front vents, listen for a leak or trace the vacuum line back ward to try to find a leak. All the best.

My AC works but heater blows cold on my 99 Plymouth voyager


I used to install AC in those, so I might be able to help. It is either the temp adjustment linkage, or it is the accessory selector. When you go from AC to heater does the air move from the vents to blowing on the floor? If so then it is possible that the linkage to the temp controller has probably slipped off one of the levers that controls the incoming air, from cold to hot. It is an easy fix. It would have to be that, because if you couldn't switch from AC to heat, you can always make the AC hot with the temp control lever.

My 1997 jaguar xj6 blows air but no heat. Can anyone help? I checked all fuses, and AC works.


the only thing that can change the air from hot to cold, or vice versa is the blender door. under your dash is a box which has 2 compartments. one with your heater core which is hot and one with ac which is cold. the blender door basically diverts which on the air in your car is being drawn from. if it is cold, air is moving on the ac side. if its hot, air is moving through the heater core side. if its warm, the door is in the middle. your temperature control knob is conecteted to an actuator, which moves that door. the actuator is a motor, but if it goes out, the door will be stuck on whichever side it is on. i would check that first. hope this helps

1999 Olds Bravada - High Heat is always on.


I have narrowed the problem to a non-functioning climate control acctuator (a mechanical vent door opening/closing unit that mixes warm and cold air) Unfortunately it is located high in the dash and requires entire removal of dash panel. Shop repair manual states a repair time of 5.2 hours... GM parts $260 actuator $75 door panel......Online parts $60 to $175
