Exclamation AC not working

My van has less then 500miles and the AC has quit. Took it to the dealer and they don't know what the issue is. It will only blow out 50 degree air. Anyone else having AC issues????

If the dealer agrees there is a problem and can't fix it, call Ford. If Ford won't help, call a lemon law attorney.

Dealer called and said they need to change the entire heater assembly. They will be removing the dash to this.


The future isn't what it use to be.

A/C in my work can is having issues as well. Just hit a 1,000 miles. It blows cold for initial start up of compressor and than humid warmer air whether on highway or in traffic. The van goes in for warranty service on Tuesday morning. I'll keep you posted and I pray they don't have to replace the entire A/C unit.

Also, It has the symptoms of a faulty compressor or low refrigerant. Hopefully there's not a leak... Compressor will cycle on/off constantly and the air will blow ice cold for say 6 seconds and then warmer/humid air for about the same time. It did not do this when I drove it the first week after purchasing. Crossing my fingers here...

That sounds like a faulty pressure or thermal switch, or possibly thermostat. I haven't worked on a/c systems for over a decade, they may have completely different control systems now. Hopefully your dealer has somebody good at troubleshooting and not just swapping parts.

The dealer has some of the best troubleshooters I've seen at any dealership in a long time. Why I bought the van from there... Anywho, they def found some ground short error code in the BCM and reset it and now my AC has been working flawlessly for about 34 miles. Now back to the same issues... They agree it's some sort of temp sensor of recirc/fresh air valve malfunction and submitted to ford for parts approval. We shall see how this goes. I have a feeling my dash will also be disassembled...

I only worry because I am now noticing that my upfitters bolted my racks where Ford labeled a "no drill zone" due to wiring... I really hope my upfitters heeded the Ford spec but why hold my breath? We shall see soon enough

The no drill zones are there as a precaution, not a prohibition.

Agreed, Alarmist.

I found a "No Drill" zone to be the boron steel (needed a close-by ground point) and it is a rat-bastid to drill through!
