Hello, I have the 2011 Expd EL Limited w/ the computer controlled HVAC system. In the heat mode (and I assume in the AC mode), the blower motor
will run as it should in speeds 1,2,3 & 4 - when you adjust up to speeds 5 & 6 the blower will run fine for 2 to 4 seconds and then it shuts off - resetting the blower speed control to speeds 1,2 or 3 again, shutting the vehicle off for a few seconds and starting it up again the blower will come back on and run fine in the lower 3 speed selections, turing the speed selection to the higher speeds again it will run for a couple seconds and then shut down again - but, the motor will stay on and run fine for whatever length of drive time you have as long as you do not exceed the 3rd speed level / obviously the higher speed it desired for defrost and defog operations - not sure if this is a computer, switch, relay problem or something else ??
JA: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?
Customer: 102,000 mi, starting and running excellent
JA: What is the model of your '11 Ford?
Customer: The EL Limited, other than that I'm not sure what you are looking for, my previous Expd was an XLT, this one is not that designation.......
JA: Are you fixing your EXP yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Today I did a through cleaning of the + & - posts and cables including the connecting wires that are attached to the positive cable and also to the power distribution box / I noticed that other day when i opened the access lid on the power distribution box water and dust/dirt had obviously been collecting around the fuses and relays so i removed all components individually, cleaned contacts and reinstalled but that didn't seem to make any difference, i've only owned this vehicle for a few weeks at this point.........
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: not that I can think of, only having problems w/ the front cabin blower motor function, rear works fine
