Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Can I please have the VIN number for your Escape? I want to check for any known concerns or recalls from Ford. Thank you.
Ok. I see you had the coolant pump recall done. When you turn the front ac on, what do you start to notice?
Do you have the code numbers you received from the computer?
Have you verified that the hvtb fans are actually coming on?
Have you experienced engine shut down due to this?
There is a thermistor that is hard wired to the HVTB battery for temperature input. It is possible that this thermistor is not reading the correct temp. According to the shop manual, if you are having high temperatures, and the fans are working and the cooling system (the a/c) is working then then problem is the actual HVTB battery itself.
I do not understand how the low pressure ac line can be cold when the ac off. That makes no sense. I will opt-out and maybe someone else knows whats going on. Another expert may be along shortly. Thanks.
