Customer Question
I have a 2011 ford...
I have a 2011 ford expedition xlt. I am having issues with air flow control adjustment in both auto and manual mode. In addition, when adjusting the rear control from the driver for heat the overheat vents do not blow air. When the rear controls are on you can adjust the temp and air flow amount using the rear controls only.

The rear AC operates as follows..

The auxiliary climate control system has dual controls for the front and rear passengers consisting of temperature/mode and blower speed. The front auxiliary A/C control functionality is integrated into the main instrument panel mounted HVAC module. The rear auxiliary A/C control is mounted in the rear finish panel of the front floor console. Temperature and airflow mode are combined into a single setting. When the temperature is set to full cool, the airflow mode will be automatically set to discharge from the headliner registers. When the temperature is set to full warm, the airflow mode will be set to discharge from the floor register.

What other issues are you having with the system?

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.

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.
