    My wifes 2001 taurus ac controls seem to be acting up.The ac works fine since I replaced it all but the fan control only works on high setting.If you select any other control the fan goes off.

    Any ideas as to what it could be?Im not familiar with whats behind the dash...:(

    I dont think it matter but about 3 weeks ago I replaced the compressor,orifice tube, and dryer/accum.

    It sounds like the culprits are the resistors which control the fan speed(the highest setting bypasses the resistors so.......that explains why it will work on high). That said you can either just replace the resistor "module"(this could be a gamble if the actual problem is with the wiring) -or- i would recommend tracing the electrical circuit and verify good wiring from switch to resistors and then when you are all finished :Track: and post up your times.:D

    for the hell of it. check the connections and clean em if there kind of corroded. if no fix. then its the blower motor resistor.

    you need to replace the blower speed controller.I used to replace the one in the Taurus more then any other Ford.
