Hey whats going on guys/gals. new to the forum, just cant wait to get crackin on this Ford.
Ok heres the run down, mods if this is an already topic discussed, I am sorry tried searching but nothing looked like what I was looking for.
I have a 2001 7.3 F350. And heres my symptums, A/C I can hear the clutch turning oin and spinning, deffinitly works, worked before the fans did not want to move. I try turning the fan speed switch in the cabin and none of the speeds work. If I am on the highway doing about 50mph, I can feel slight cold air from all the vents when the A/C switch is turned on, most likely recirculated air moving throught the vents.
Well here is what I have done to remidy this problem, switched out the relays, just swaped them out with the same looking ones and the same part numbers no difference, I am pretty sure it was the 40amp fuse(orange). From the look seemed to look fine. I finally got home from vacation and will pull out the multimeter and test the continuity on the relays and the fuses, to see if there fine.
I also repalced the fan speed resistor, the little resistor right by the A/C system on the right passenger side of the bay. I have also changed out with a brand new napa fan speed switch in the bay, and nothing. So I went b ack and returned it to napa. Will check the continuity in the switch to see if that is fine.
I will be picking up a repair manual to see where the located voltage piuck ups I should be looking for to see if everything is recieving power. So my guess is that the motors are gone. Can I get a response from you guys what do you think asap.
Sorry for the long post but needed to get all that info. out was killing me out in the keys without any A/C.
Take it easy guys.
