2004 Ford Focus ZTS Climate Control Button Not Working

Hello everyone,

I have a 2004 Ford Focus ZTS. For while now, the button to activate the air condition has not been working correctly. So you have somewhat of an idea what is going on, this is what the control panel looks like.



The button that is not working correctly is button 5. For a long time, (I was told, at least) that you had to press the button multiple times to get it to work. Over time, you had to press it more and more. Now, the button is just stuck "on" and you cannot turn it off.

Personally, I think the button itself is the problem (as opposed to something else keeping the AC on). Do you all agree?

Before I go ahead and take everything apart to be able to get to the button, are they generally easy enough to get to? What kind of part would I need?

Thank you for all your help.

From your description of the symptoms, it does, indeed, sound as if the button is the problem. If, in fact, that is the case, getting to that button is not difficult. The radio surround, to which that A/C button is screwed with several Phillips head screws, is attached by four 8mm, or maybe they are 10mm bolts. Those bolts are hidden by the HU, which, if it is a Ford HU, is removed with a special "U" shaped tool available at Walmart. Many people make that tool from a wire coat hanger. The A/C button is easily replaced, requiring only removing those two screws and unplugging the button. Good luck.

Call Steve @ Tousley, he most likely has, or can get it.

Or, a salvage yard.
