Results 68 to 70 degrees at drivers floor vent (18 to 20 above outside temp)
Dealer said this is normal, contacted Ford and did a AC temp check for this against another Focus. When I had dropped the car off in the morning they said they saw the problem, but by end of day, no problem. Told me they checked the blend door by eyeball with a flashlight. I looked under the dash from both side and can't see sh_t of any flap or door. I have the manual temp controls and think I'm being told bullsh_t.
Wait wait wait... you're adjusting the dial as far as it will go WITHOUT pressing AC on...?
What are we missing here? Just having the fans on without turning on the AC isn't going to result in cold air... I don't understand your issue here.
