I have to replace the HVAC control module in a 2009 Ford…

Customer Question
I have to replace...

I have to replace the HVAC control module in a 2009 Ford Flex, and cannot seem to locate the module in the car.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Flex yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have removed the touch-screen, radio, and controls, to determine the problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the device aftermarket, or did it come with the vehicle?

The Climate control is stuck on Defrost/AC/Fan Hi The vehicle is a 2009 FLEX Limited. I have owned it since new.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's probable adequate to start.

The HVAC control module is mounted under the dash above the glove compartment. I am sending a diagram to help you locate it.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

I already found that diagram, the module is NOT there which is why I posed the question. I was told of the $5 (refundable)? deposit, not the $30 charge on my card for useless information, which I will NOT honor..
Ford Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 8 months ago

I will open your question back up for the other techs. You will possibly get a tech who has had to replace it if it's not where the ford service manual says it is. Please don't rate or reply as it will lock the question back to me.

Hello, can you post the 17 digit VIN number so I can check the information based on the build date of the vehicle? If you replace this module it must be programmed for it to work using a dealer style scan tool if it is a dual zone electronic climate control 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.
