2016 Ford Eacape: turned on the defrost for the first time and it made a loud noise and the SUV started shaking as I drove.

Asked by Nov 25, 2016 at 09:35 AM about the 2016 Ford Escape SE

Question type: General

I have a 2016 Ford Eacape.  I turned on the
defrost for the first time and it make loud
noises when the blower/motor was on and
started shaking the whole SUV.   I took it in
and they stated they have been having
issues with the blower/motor and replaced
it.  Two days after the new blower was
instLled I turned in the defrost again and
same issues.  Both times after I used the
defrost the air conditioning and heat does
the same loud noises and vibrations.  No
air comes out of the vents.  Good it back
again the the blower is full of white stuff
the dealer called white feathers?   I see
Ford has had issues with the blower and
motor like this for many years on many of
their vehicles.  Also since I took my SUV in
the first time the tire sensors keep coming
on too.  I see this has been an issue as
well.  Any suggestions?   Do I have a
lemon?  Thank you for your time and
suggestions.

I'm wondering if the cabin air filter is not properly installed a is being chewed up by the blower fan. Or if possibly a critter is trying to build a nest in there. If the tires are inflated to the proper pressures, including the spare, the TPMS light should not be on. If it is there's a problem with one of the sensors and it needs to be replaced. If the TPMS light flashes then stays on steady it's definitely a sensor. Lemon Law guidelines differ State to State. Generally speaking the dealer has three tries to fix a problem within a reasonable amount of time. If it can't be fixed you can begin evoking your rights under your States version of The Lemon Law.
