Having problems with your 1999 Ford Expedition ?

Within the past year I had the heater coil replaced and the blender door because I had heat in the back but not heat in the front.. Afterwards I had heat and air for a few months only. Now I only have a little heat coming from the tiny vents at the top of the vent but nothing coming from the vents.No heat either. Cold air in the back. Also I only get the tiny bit of heat after it has idled for 15-20 min.

It sounds like the blend door motor is failing or is stuck. You could go to mitchell1diy online to diagnose this and for the instructions to remove the dash. Plan on spending a day or two on this if you have never taken a dash out before.
You might want to have the temperature door actuator checked and make sure it is actually moving.Also check the heater hoses and make sure they are both hot to the touch.If only one is hot then you need to replace the heater core.If they are both hot then your problem is in the temp.actuator or the control head itself.You could have codes checked in the hvac control module.This could give you an indication of what is causing the problem.If there is a door or actuator that is not performing correctly there should be a code in the module.Not all service shops have the scan tool that will read the hvac module codes.This will not turn on any lights.Hope this helps.Good luck.Let me know if you need any more help.

AC was weak so had it recharged. Everything was fine for the rest of the day. Next morning I started the car, turned on the AC, was putting junior into his carseat when the AC quit. I turned it off then back on several times and the fans would come on then go off. Then nothing. And I mean nothing, no lights on the control panel, no fans, nothing on heat or air. I tried for a week, checking connections, testing fuses, nothing. Then I drove it out to my sons house, about 30 miles. On the way back

Heating problem my heater only works when the car is moving and works best on the highway. i have brought it to my mechanic 3 times or so now and he fixes it each time but then after about 2 weeks it fail again and goes back to the same problem; blowing out cool air when the car is on but idle, and when i move it warms up. even if i am moving a great deal say 20 min on highway it gets nice and warm but once i get off the highway and come to red light or stop somewhere it goes back to cool air. i

Heat not working on 98 gmc jimmy. Replaced thermostat, checked fluids. Blows air but no heat. Have automatic temp controls and when put on auto nothing at all comes through vents but if put back to manual then cold air blows out, Replaced actuator this summer, could that have messed something up? How can I flush the heater core?


Flushing the heater core is fairly easy just remove the 2 hoses going to the heater core and use a different hose if you have to and use a garden hose to backflush the blockage out..this may take as much as 5-6 times also check for vacumn lines miss ... 1998 GMC Jimmy

I have a 2000 Lincoln LS. I replaced the motor over a year ago. I had to take my car back to the garage after having the motor replaces because I had no heat or air. Come to find out, they never hooked it back up. I have never had cold air since. The heat works fine. No matter what setting I use the air almost always comes at the windshield. It does sometimes come out the vents on the dash but rarely. When it is coming out the vent in the dash, if I turn a corner or give it gas or let off the ga

When I turn the ignition all lights come on, radio works, air and heat work, everything is like normal except nothing happens. No winding sound, no starter engaging nothing just a click and it only makes that noise once not a continuous clicking. It did this one time before about 5 days ago and when I came back to it after it sat for an hour or so it started right away and have had no problems until now. I am guessing the starter is going bad or maybe an electrical problem.


Check the connections at the battery they need to be tight and clean. the starter draws alot more amperage than any other electrical componets. if all connectios are good than it sounds like the starter is bad ... 1998 Buick LeSabre

Overheating. Ok I have a 2001 Infiniti I30.It has 80,000 miles now. The problem started when I noticed there was coolant coming out of the air vents into the cabin. Everything was fine.

09 Pontiac g5 over heats while sitting at idle cooling fans not working they come on with the ac which is normal and after you turn the ac off they will stay on until engine cools back down and they shut off again which once again is normal operation. But when the engine temp starts to climb back over 196* they will not come back on until you turn the ac back on. I have moved the relays around to see if maybe a faulty relay is to blame but nada. Next step i would think is test the Ect sensor. Ho
