vacuum pump

Heat only comes from the defrost, i've been reading this is related to the vacuum pump.
i was wondering if the vacuum pump had a fuse. Looking through the manuel I couldn't see a direct fuse for the pump.
Is it under a common fuse any info would be appreciate, before i replace the pump.
Just for information the pump does not engage once the key it turned to the on position.

The fuse for the vacuum pump motor is on the main fuse panel under the steering column, far right, 4th from the top, 15A fuse. Location F2.27 according to Ford's wiring diagram manual.

I just went through this too. Definitely related to the vacuum pump. I did research, you can test the vacuum pump to see if its dead by putting a volt meter to the connector on it and you should see a resistance of about 10ohms for a good one. A bad one will have a small amount or none. Mine was bad. Ford wanted 200 for a new one. Found one on RockAuto Auto Parts (awesome place for parts, i ordered it friday and had it monday with standard shipping). And this is if the fuse is good to

I had this problem with mine after a trip to the dealer. They plugged the vacuum line into the back of the relay. I unplugged it put it on the front and it worked! They wanted $290.00 to fix it. I don't think I will be going back to my Dealer.
