Re: FORD TOPAZ 1992 A/C CONTROL SWITCH NOT WORKING
Yes the ac/heater control switches can be replaced if they are still avail from ford, but after 10 years the number of parts carried by Ford for any model is low, but check you dealer and if he does not have one, have him run a locate, some dealer may have the parts. before you do all that check the press cycling swtich in the low side AC line to make sure it is working, if that sticks the compressor will not engage.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Things that could cause this is coil bad, ingnition modual failed or maybe pickup coil."sensor maybe some where..timing out which would indicate timing belt or chain or gears are broke......Keep in mind these are just some things that could cause your problem and gives you ideal what to look for........hope this info helps and good luck....Please rate this post and if you need more help then fill free to contact me and we will try to get ya back on the road......

I had the same problem. It was the idle air control valve. It sits on top of the intake just downstream from the throttle. There's a valve rod inside that gets worn over time and starts to stick. If that's what is causing your problem, you need to replace the unit.
Did you fix this yet? Are you getting fuel to the plugs? Try starting the car, then remove one of the plugs. Check for the smell of fresh gasoline. You could also try smelling the exhaust to see if there is a fresh unburt gasoline smell. If your getting fuel, then the fuel system is probably not the problem. Are you getting spark to the plugs? After you replaced the Distributor, did you adjust the timing?
