Having problems with your 2003 Ford Expedition ?

Ok..here's the problem..for the past month when I put the AC on, regardless of it being on auto or just me choosing the fan speed, it will shift from the front vents to defrost vents by itself. it will continue to do this the whole time the ac is on.

It is either a vaccum leak or a defective PVHS (Vacumm Hub Solenoid). First test the vacuum using a gauge (Lisle\015\012 20300) in vacuum lines while heating the lines or spraying the lines with spray lube (Multi-Purpose lube).

After ensuring that there is no leak, go for the solenoid. The solenoid can be tested reading Ohms at its contacts and ensuring that there is continuity.

Vacuum leaks are most common cause for this problem.

The logic of the door that controls defrost or vent is messed up either by a loose vacuum hose to a vacuum motor, or a bad vacuum motor.
