2012 Ford Fusion Air Conditioner
Air conditioner will work off and on. At times when the air conditioner is on it
will start blowing out extremely hot air. Ford dealer acts like they don't know
what the problem is. I don't want to pay a lot of money for them to tell me
nothing is wrong.
Try this, listen to the dash slightly right of center if you can here an occasional clicking sound you probably have a bad blend door actuator that actuator moves a door from heat to cool and in between
Yes, Mike! When the AC is on, it's putting out a constant temperature coolant. Your car blends this cold coming from the AC evaporator with hot, from your engine coolant system, to achieve the temperature you set the "thermostat" to. The door just throttles the two to get the resultant temp where you want it. This sticking or broken door is really easy to diagnose by someone who knows what he's doing.
I had the same thing happen. Keep in mind I know nothing about cars but I was able to find someone who told me the problem.Your temp control And some other stuff having to do with your a/c is located behind the glove compartment. Something (idk what the man said) located next to it causes the control box to get hot and actually causes it to melt. Mine had started working on and off randomly and if I bumped the box it would come on for a few mins and shut back off and had started sparking , I got my boyfriend to look at it and he took it off and it was melted. Apparently this is something that happens to a lot of the 2012 fusions. Another thing that’s common is the power steering will go out and the power steering for these vehicles is electric so it’s about a $1200 fix from what I was told. However, After my power steering had been out for about 3 months I went to crank my car and the battery was dead. I hooked our jump box to the battery and it was like a light show was going on inside my car, everything was flashing and it kept making a clicking noise when I would try to crank it. I unhooked the jump box and hooked it back up again and it crunk up and my power steering started working again. I have no idea what that means or what’s caused it to stop or start back but I would def ask around before paying to have the power steering stuff replaced
There is a recall for three power steering contact dealership. Mine did the second thing and I found out there is a recall for it
