Ford Mustang GT ProblemsA/C Fan Speed Changing Constantly
The 2010-2014 Ford Mustang GT with automatic climate control may have a problem with frequent fan speed changes when using the heater or air conditioner. This includes all performance models including the GT500, BOSS 302, GT, GT350, GT-H, and CA Special Ed.
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.
The 2005-2009 Ford Mustang GT with manual temperature and fan controls may have problems with the the blower motor only blowing air on certain settings. This affects the Mustang Bullitt, Shelby Mustang GT350 and Shelby Mustang GT500 as well.
Most commonly the fan will only run on the highest setting. This is a well documented problem, and is caused by a failing blower motor resistor.
Correcting the problem is straight forward, and requires replacement of the small resistor. The resistor is normally found behind the glove box, next to the blower motor.
If a squeaking noise is heard while turning the steering wheel, the outer tie rod ends may be worn and should be replaced.
