No heater controls

Asked by Oct 29, 2016 at 01:23 PM about the 2013 Ford Taurus Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just had a battery installed and now
the radio and climate controls do not
work. Heater is blowing hot air pit off
the vents and I cannot change settings
or turn it off. It feels like an oven.
Someone please help.

It sounds like you need to reset the system. I had this happen a year or so ago. Basically you need to do a hard reset to your computer. I would call the dealer and ask them or search online. It isnt hard to do and it should fix your issue.

That done the trick. You disconnect the positive cable from the battery insert your key and turn the key three times as if you were starting the car. Reconnect the positve cable. Follow the prompts on the display and then reprogram all of your personal settings.
