Ford Escort Problem Report
Ford Escort The Constant Control Relay Module May Fail
There are reports of failures of the CCRM or Constant Control Relay Module. The CCRM has relays and switches inside that control or provide power to the engine cooling fan, AC clutch (to engage the AC compressor), fuel pump and powertrain control module (PCM). Single switches or relays can fail internally causing a number of different symptoms including no start conditions (inoperative fuel pump or PCM), engine running warm due to inoperative cooling fan, or the AC might not blow cold air.
Started running crazy then died wouldnt start again had it looked at the Relay Module was replaced ran for about two days wouldnt start again it like the computer went out again Also when it started having problems the cooling fan would just run had to remove the fuse to stop it. What would cause this computer to fail again??? - js141519
a/c compressor won't stop working, even if the a/c switch is on off. Mechanic told me to replace the CCRM - andrebrazil
I'm not sure this is the problem however it fits better than anything else. A/C began to work intermittently over the summer and then quit entirely; the compressor comes on but no cool air. Mechanic told me its not the compressor nor does it need freon. I'll deal with it next summer ;). - neptune

A/C CLUTCH WOULDN'T CYCLE I REMOVED CCRM, DRILLED RIVETS, REMOVED COVER,LOOKED OVER THE INSIDE REAL GOOD, TESTED A FEW CONNECTION WITH A OHM. METER BUT THE PROBLEM DIDN'T SHOW UP TIL I HOOKED IT BACK UP WITH THE COVER OFF AND HAD SOME ONE TURN ON THE A/C AND SAW A SPARK FROM A SOLDERED JOINT ON ONE OF THE RELAYS.I MADE REPAIR AND BOLTED THE COVER BACK ON. - Visitor
The air conditioning fan, heater fan, defrost fan all of a sudden quit working. Took it to a local shop after checking ALL of the fuses and was told the CRM needed replaced ($85 diagnostics an $400 repair). I am looking into purchasing the part myself and doing the repair... any suggestions would be most appreciated. - Visitor

My control relay module caught fire. I replaced it with a used relay control module and has been working fine since! - momo2477
Car will not produce cold air. Took to the shop and have been told that it is the Constent Control Relay Mogel. - Visitor
The AC would cut in and out...sometimes blowing just air, sometimes blowing cold. Because of this I couldn't drive in the rain because the windshield wouldn't de-fog either. I took it in today for repair. They said it was the 'Integrated Relay'. They put a new one on and they said it was fine. I got one mile away and it stopped working again. Took it back. They were a little confused over it. So they went to pick up another integrated relay, and this one worked fine. The first one they installed was bad a bad part...and they got it new from the Ford dealer just this morning. They said there seems to be a fault in them and they have seen many bad ones. Lucky me, huh? - Visitor

My air conditioner started blowing warm air instead of cool air. I'm not sure if the engine light had already been on, though. AutoZone's computer told me it has an AC power failure. I'm only assuming it's the control module. - Visitor
