    2006 Explorer Grey AC Line Mystery

    The AC works fine until I accelerate. Accelerating causes the AC front blowers to dip and not blow any air. I hear a hiss from behind the glovebox, and AC doesn't return until I take my foot off the gas. Checking behind the glovebox, all connections seem sound. Looking under the hood I found...

    '91 A/C reinstall ??? Can you look under your hood for me?

    Hey guys, I'm working at reinstalling my A/C system after I ripped it all out about 6 years ago (long story), and I think I have all of the parts I need, BUT I can't find the A/C Compressor connector. Odds are I pushed it out of the way or zip-tied it to another connector to keep it from getting...

    Hello I bought my explore in June of 2015 with 169,XXX on the clock, it was really hot that day and the air conditioner blew very cold that day. Fast forward almost 5 years later and the clock now says 226500. My air conditioner does not blow as cold any more, but blows cool. I don't suspect...

    So, the air conditioning on my V6 blows room temperature, I turned the AC on max with fan all the way up and temperature all the way to cool with AC on and I noticed that the compressor never engages, so I'm pretty sure that's bad. Over the summer I'll be looking into getting the AC up and...

    Suggestions for AC Diagnostics

    This morning while I was getting on the freeway to work I noticed a strong burning smell that died down slowly. There was road construction in the area so I kept driving thinking nothing of it. As i kept driving i noticed that the Air Conditioning had stopped blowing cold air. The temperature...

    AC Grinding noise behing glovebox

    I have searched everywhere and cannot find a problem exactly like mine. A/C works just fine. Air is cold and heat works like it should. Problem is the grinding noise coming from behind the glovebox. The sound is faint, but noticeable, on low, and gets louder and faster as the ac fan is cranked...

    Air Conditioning Diagnostics

    The air conditioning on my explorer is not working properly. The compressor kicks on and off but it is every couple seconds so it seems low on refrigerant. I was wondering if it sounds like i just need to get a recharge or does it sound like i have a leak. I purchased the vehicle recently so i...

    AC button doesn't work

    My AC button doesn't work so the only way i get my AC to work is if i put it on MAX AC. Which doesn't really help because all that does is recycle the air in the car. Also if I have MAX AC on and go over 40mph the blower automatically switches and blows the air out of the defroster vents. Can...

    Blowing hot air instead of cool from outside

    Hi folks. Hope someone can give some good advice. I have a 96 Explorer. I would expect when I adjust the climate control knobs to give me outside air and no heat, then turn on the blower...I'd get the outside air coming through the vents. Not's super heated. I'm guessing there must...
