Blower only works in Defrost or Floor.. What is the problem?

Post by 08TaurusX » Fri Feb 13, 2015 2:33 pm

My son has a 08/09 Taurus X, he told me that the blower will not work in the dash vent selection mode.

It will work in the Floor or Defrost selection mode. If he selects the dash mode it diverts to the Defrost vents.

Ideas?

I'm a novice to this car (bought my '07 500 2 weeks ago) but from what I've read, the actuator for the climate control may be going bad. It should be fairly easy to access behind the glovebox door. Looks like an inexpensive part and an easy repair.

Also look for a vacuum leak. I had a similar issue with my a/c and would only blow out the defrost. Found that it was a vacuum leak. One of the lines on the passenger side that go through the firewall was cracked. I had a shop do a smoke test and they found it right away. Cost me $40 for the test. They replaced the vacuum line for free.
