Question about 2002 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

My blower motor works but is not blowing out the vents on dashboard, only vents by windshield and side vents but not from dash...how should this be fixed....some vacuum hose ??

My blower motor works, can hear it! I can not get the air to come out of the dashboard vents though.....no matter what setting the blower is on....for heat, air, vent, etc.... Comes out the top vent by the windshield and the side vents but not the middle or sides in the dashboard. So, that rules out a blown fuse (flasher) doesn't it? I think it is probably a vacuum hose but I really need some guidance on how to troubleshoot this....I know I need to look under the dash....what am I looking for???

You have a loss of vacuum from the engine, first check under the hood and make sure the vacuum storage tank is not damaged and leaking and it has vacuum in it when the engine is running. If all that is ok then move on to the line that goes inside the truck and verify it has vacuum.

Exactly!! Follow the vacuum line , I believe to be on the right side of the truck, and follow it back to the engine. I'll be willing to bet you will find a break or a modification where a mechanic has hooked it to the wrong port. Now it is also possible for this engine to have a one way check valve installed in line with the vacuum line. Look under the hood for any diagram since the vacuum lines on these newer models will be minimal. Let me know.

Heat and air wont blow through vents


The selection door, is operated by 1/4" vacuum hoses. When turning the knob or sliding a lever, to select between floor, vents, or dash deck for windshield defrost, vacuum is created by the valve body and the blower will then blow thru the desired vents. When these hoses/lines are compromised, especially on a vehicle over 15 years old it seems likely, vacuum won't be created, and the last working position, is normally where it stays! Until the lines are replaced.
Good luck.

Why won't defrost on dash blow out on the windshielf


Time to get behind the dash, to check ducking and actuator's door and motor, I think you have a clogged duck or actuator door or motor that need to be repair or replace.

Sounds like leaves are in the air vents, towards the front the dash


Locate the blower motor resistor and remove it. See if you can moves the leaves that way. If not, you may have to remove the blower fan

Heater blowing out cold air


Several things.
If the heater hoses are hot, the problem could be a blend door under the dash. The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and out the vents.

AC is only blowing through the defrost vents in the dashboard?


I think your problem is the head unit that selects where the air comes out ie. Face, floor, defrost, or hi-level face and floor. If that's not working then it will not let you switch location that you want the air to come out.

I have a 2001 9-5 SE V6 with about 88.5K miles. The interior fan air only blows out of the face/dash vents no matter what position (feet, windshield, or face) the indicator shows. Fan speed and temp work...


2 possible problems, #1 is the control switch on the dash has malfuntioned(less likely) , #2 is the motor under the dash that changes the blower position is not working properly.

Please rate my answer ............Thanks

My blower works sometime and then stops and starts and stops


This is the way blower motors act when they go out sometimes,it will have to be replaced to solve this problem,when the blower quits again,bump the blower motor with the palm of your hand,if it starts back blowing,then this is the problem.
