#40 of 537 04 EXPLORER AC PASSENGER VENTS NOT BLOWING ENOUGH
Aug 26, 2007 (9:16 am)
2004 Explorer that has A/c issue. The dash vents blow very little air regardless of the fan speed selected. We have to set it on 3 or 4 in order to feel the equivalent of a 1 or 2 in other cars.
When the a/c is set on normal vent, the defrost vents blow a little bit of air out. I have read the posts in the Ford Ranger Maintenance and Repair post, but I am not sure if I can decipher the wording. Sorry, not very car hood literate.
#42 of 537 02 EXPl heat/air..fan loud, low airflow

I have an 2002 XLT explorer. When I turn on the air or heat, it works, however the air flow generated by the blower seems very low....even at the highest setting. I can hear the blower roar, but like I said, there is little air or power generated. Any ideas what could be causing this?

Turns out that I took the blower apart (underneath the glove box) and the inlet was clogged with napkins. They must have got sucked in from the glove box. I cleaned off the inlet screen and now it works like a charm.

#47 of 537 02 Explorer Sport air condtioner failed.

It sounds like a solenoid fires every 5 seconds (a loud click). After the loud click it sounds like the compressor engages but only for 1 second and then disengages. Then the cycle starts again. If the climate control knob is not in the A/C position, there is no clicking sound. In any event, the air coming out of the vents is warm. Any help is appreciated.

Your system is low on refrigerant (R-134a). Soon, it will quit working until you charge it. Get it to a garage pronto, and they'll fix you right up. Probably just needs a couple pounds of R-134.
