2011 Ford Expedition Problems

A/C Fan Speed Changing Constantly

The 2008-2016 Ford Expedition with automatic climate control may have a problem with frequent fan speed changes when using the heater or air conditioner. Normally, the fan speed changes only to maintain a selected temperature, but when the fan speed changes frequently and needlessly, there is an issue with the fan speed control unit. 

The fan speed control unit, sometimes erroneously called the blower motor resister, regulates the speed for the blower motor in order to maintain the temperature set by the driver. When it fails, the fan will run at random settings, and the climate control will be inaccurate.

Note: this does not affect the temperature of the air that comes from the vents, it affects the amount of air that comes from the vents. 

The repair is simple, and quick. The control unit is located behind the glove box in most models, and removal and installation takes only minutes.

Also note: this only applies to vehicles with single or dual automatic climate control.

But they weren't sure if that was even the problem. Although the vehicle is under warranty, they refuse to provide me with a replacement ve...

2011 Ford Expedition Questions

Vehicle continues to flash check engine & service light and locks into 3rd gear. (1 answer)

We have had the vehicle into the mechanic several times. They have walked through the vehicle wire by wire and reset the computer but it continues. When everything is reset the vehicle usually runs a day or two with no problems, then the issues re-occur.

There is a clicking sound coming from the console when the vehicle is started. (1 answer)

The sound lasts for about 10 seconds and goes away. Occasionally it will happen when driving, but always when it is started.

My ac is just blowing hot air. It make s a loud noise when turned to max cold. (1 answer)

It stop working instantly. It happened as I was leaving from getting my tire fixed. Could that have something to do with it not working? My car has 40,000 miles on it and is in great shape.

Bought this car new from dealer. 6 months later, the air compressor jammed and belt was smoking. Took it for maintenance 3 times, still my AC not fuctioning well. I regret buying a Ford. Gentelmen, beware from buying cheap cars. Japanese cars are more reliable.
