Good evening, the wiper concern is an easy one, its the multifunction switch ( the turn signal switch). The Air conditioning concern I don't think I'm understanding, can you elaborate at all?

tHE A/C ONLY WORKS WHEN IT IS SET ON MAX, WHEN IT IS SET ON REGULAR A/C THE HEAT WORKS
Ford Mechanic: connor75, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
Your blend door is broken, keeping it on max ac shuts off the fresh air intake which blows the door to the heat position. This is a fairly common problem, mainly on Explorers but also on Rangers, it is going to require replacement of the entire heater plenum.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
