Mode door mechanical failure b1086 :07

Recommended Posts

Air conditioner isnt acting automatic, won't blow through floor. Was making a harsh almost grinding gear noise for a long time. Going to try pulling the fuse, like can fix temperature doors.

Sounds like a failed blend door actuator.  Common problem with first gen Fusions/MKZs.

heard of anyone fixing it themselves? I've seen the passenger side blend door, but not the mode door.

Not true.  The  mode door actuator only requires the removal of the pedals.  Having said that, it's far more likely that you have a door sticking (usually caused by a foam gasket in the box sliding out of place and gluing the door in one position).  The mode door actuator turns an eccentric wheel that operates 2 separate doors, sounds like the vent door is stuck.  To deal with THAT you will probably have to pull the console, shifter and dash.

I'll try doing the pull fuse/ door calibrate trick, and see if it will return to life tonight.

Boo, recalibrate fails. Maybe I can get at this the same time I change out my center speaker?

That's an 06, but you are probably right, and pulling the dash sounds terrible. If I can see the mode actuator, I'll see if the actuated device turns

The climate control system was essentially the same for 06-12.
