A few questions about a 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid 4x4 2.3L battery and AC related
Thank you for taking a moment to read these questions I have about my newly purchased Escape..
Here are the symptoms:
1: If I turn on max AC , the battery assist stops working completely. I have battery assist only (literally) when the AC selector is at the AC air recycled position. (listed as "AC" with a picture of the vehicle with the arrow showing the air flow.
Other than that specific position....I have no battery assist.
2: The windshield defroster works ..but any other air flow direction selected does not work. (i.e. No air flow to the floorboard from either the AC nor the heater.
3: The vehicle refuses to go into "L" gear. I mean...the gear shift will not go into the "L" position.
4: From what I have read....the assist battery is cooled via the air conditioner....and...according to what I have read....one can open the battery filter compartment and open a door to check and see if the compartment inside is cool.
I have done that...and the compartment is not cool at all.
On the same note....I have had my AC serviced and refilled, but I only have cold air flow when the vehicle is traveling up an incline. (Otherwise...it is blowing mid-temperature - to warm air.
Any thoughts on any of these ailments would be greatly appreciated.
