FAQs—Ford Five Hundred
I have a Ford Five Hundred. I noticed that the air would not cool when my car is just idling, but it cools just fine when I am driving. Any idea what might be wrong?
The most likely cause for this is a coolant leak. You may know there is a leak by the telltale oil stains and wet spots under your car. However, if you don't see one like that, check the system by three methods. First, by adding a special dye, which is available in pressurized cans pre-mixed with coolant; second, by using an electronic leak detector; or third, by spraying soapy water on hose connections and watching out for bubbles. Once you find the leak, have it repaired as soon as possible. This might involve replacing O-rings, seals, or hoses.
If that doesn't help or there is no leak at all, inspect the system pressure using a set of air conditioner service gauges. Attach them to the high and low service fittings and wait for the readings. If both the high and low side pressure gauges read low, then the system needs to be recharged.
Occasionally, the window on the driver's side of my Ford Five Hundred goes down when I try to roll it up. However, if I push the UP button a couple of times, it will stop and then go up. What seems to be causing this?
Ford Five Hundred's window button has a "one touch up" function that is designed in such a way that if the window meets a restriction, it automatically rolls back down. The flaw here is that sometimes, if the window tracks get sticky, it provides enough resistance that will restrict the window from going up further, which will then force it to roll back down. To fix this, try spraying silicone into the window guides. If this doesn't help, check the glass run and molding for any contamination or tight spots and make sure that the glass is seated squarely in its clamps and tightened properly. Should you find a contamination or tight spots or if the glass is loose, do the necessary repairs. You could also replace the window regulator motor with one that has revised software.
My Ford Five Hundred's fan control speed only works on high. How can I fix this?
This might be caused by a bad blower motor resistor, which sits on top of the blower motor. This component lowers the voltage that reaches the motor based on your speed selection. When the air conditioner is at high, this means full voltage is being applied to the motor and is bypassing the resistors, which is why your A/C is only working at high settings. You only need to replace it; it is not an expensive component and is easy to replace by yourself. Simply open the glove box door all the way and reach up to the blower motor. Detach the wiring harness and unscrew the resistor pack before installing the new one.
