The light for the AC controls started blinking about a week ago and now the light is not working and the AC/heat will not turn on.
There is a constant tapping noise (even when the car is off) near the passenger side.

I checked the fuses and they seem to be in order.

Thanks for your help!

If you have Electronic Automatic Temperature Control you may retrieve the "code" by using this guide:http://www.fordforumsonline.com/for...onic-automatic-temperature-control-codes.html

If you have manual A/C, then you should find the source of the clicking. You may have an door actuator that has failed, or a door that has broken. If the door/actuator has failed in the "warm" position, you will not receive cold air from your A/C.

Thanks for your reply. We have electronic. I forgot to add that I tried to retrieve the code but nothing happened. The panel itself is dead...but it isn't a fuse because I already checked them.

Actually, I switched them around and what I switched it with worked. I will go back and check again tomorrow morning.

Thanks!

We took the car to the Ford Agency and they told us that it was the control unit.

On another note. We had the oil changed while it was there. On the way home it lost oil pressure (went down to 0) and the engine started making a horrible grinding/rattling sound. The dealer towed it back to their shop.
Is this something that would have happened if they didn't replace the oil after they drained it?
They are maintaining that they did nothing wrong....which is laughable since it was about 4-5 miles away from the shop on the way home. The car has always run very well in the past.
They are also saying that we may need a new engine.
Does anyone have any insight as to anything that could have caused a perfectly fine engine with 100,000 miles on it to be destroyed besides the oil not being replaced?

Thanks!

I'd make sure I didn't give them my original receipt back. It may come in handy for a small claims case once you have to replace the motor. I've heard of places forgetting to fill the oil after changing it. Mistakes happen!

don't go crazy on them don't say lawyer right away talk directly to the service manager and explain your side and what you believe happened.They should work with you about fixing the problem.
