Yes! I actually moved the temperature up and down to see if it could maybe start back to working. I believe an actuator is not working. I am probably going to also replace the damn compressor as well. I am royally peeved with Ford and after this episode I am done with Ford Automotive.
You are not alone! i bout my ford 500 about 1 year ago and it started doing the same thing yours is! Its very nerve racking!
I had the same problem. I pulled a vacuum on the coolant lines and then pressurized the system again with coolant and now both sides blow cool air like new. This was a lot cheaper and easier than replacing the compressor.
