Hi, My name is Jay

This problem is caused by the blower motor speed controller in the blower a/c case behind glove box is shorted out and may require replacing connector with the blower controller (blower resistor)

Ask Your Own Ford Question

Here is directions to replace the resistor blower controller. Also am including a technical bulletin for possible repair to wiring when replacing the blower module.

Thanks, ***** ***** be able to try until later today or tomorrow will advise results. Where can i buy the resistor needed?

Dealer will have it with the connector. You can try the local parts store but not sure if they will even have it.

Thanks, ***** ***** call to make sure I get it before starting the repair. Any part number or just ask for 2007 Ford Expedition resistor blower controller?
They will ask for Vin number at dealership so you get correct one for your vehicle. Makes a difference of you have automatic or manual a/c controls.

Thanks, ***** ***** automatic I believe. no knobs, rocker switches for fan, AC direction, heat seat under LED panel.

Yes it is automatic a/c controls. I would recommend dealer to get correct part and connector as needed.

Thanks is the part expensive?

I am not positive on the price now but it was about $160 the last time I had to replace one a couple years ago. Prices change and your location also may have lower or higher costs.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

The parts manual says it is $138 but i find it is sometimes low due to price increases.

A little confused how many parts do I need before I start. Just the bloert motor speed controller or the wiring kit?

Just replace the blower controller and check wiring connector and replace if it needs it only.

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.
