A/C Problems

Posted by cheerful1 (My Page) on

I have a 1996 Explorer. The A/C only comes up when the fan speed is on its highest. It's not doing anything at the other speeds. Would that be a belt problem?

RE: A/C Problems

Could you rephrase the question?

Are you talking about the blower motor inside the car?

RE: A/C Problems

Yes; when we're sitting in the car, and turn on both the A/C and fan speed controls, no cool air (or any air for that matter) comes out unless the fan speed control is on its highest.

RE: A/C Problems

OK, then you are simply referring to a problem in the blower resistor circuit. (Resistor assembly, wiring, or control head)

RE: A/C Problems

Thanks, John.

Is it easily fixable by a mechanic? We can bring it in when it's scheduled for inspection. Not a great rush now.

RE: A/C Problems

Yes. The hardest part will be access to whatever component has failed, and for an experienced person, that's not a big deal at all.
