Blend door issue
Outside temp 45° heat on set on 75° vent,floor
defrost all selections,when making a turn left or
right cold outside air rushes in then returns to
warm after turn.The opposite in summer when ac
is on any selected position blows cold air until a
turn left or right the faster into turn the more
unwanted warm air,the same in winter with cold air
burst thru until turns complete?
That's a good one. I've seen similar happenings on vehicles with adjustable thermostats when the vehicle has two electric radiator cooling fans and one is defective, but it happens rhythmically when driving straight ahead. Question: If the vehicle is parked and running, will it do the same thing if the wheel is turned to the left or right while stationary?
Only when moving and into a turn,more noticable when making a left turn.
Not sure on the new vehicle, as I have not torn into one as of yet. If the vehicle was older, it would sound like a vacuum problem where vacuum is being lost when turning. But I suspect on a newer vehicle it's controlled via electric. At any rate the 2016 should be under warranty. Take it to Ford, they probably know what the problem is straight away.
