2003 Ford Windstar Heater Problems

Save

Introduced in 1994, the Ford Windstar was a four-speed automatic minivan manufactured until 2003. The 2003 model has a V-6 engine and is available in 3-door and 5-door models. Although the 2003 Windstar had numerous popular interior features, it suffers from several heater-related problems.

Blend Door

  • The most common heater-related issue with the 2003 Ford Windstar is a faulty blend door, which controls the heater function by separating hot air from cold air. Edmunds.com indicates that cost to replace the blend door is an estimated $500 for parts, along with a six-to-eight-hour labor process.

Actuator

  • If your blend door does not need replacement, the issue may be the actuator, which helps control the blend door. The actuator, located behind the Windstar's radio, costs approximately $60 according to Edmunds.com.

Motor

  • Another heater-related problem with the 2003 Windstar is the heater motor. Signs of a faulty motor may often appear in "clicking" noises coming from the dashboard. Repair Pal estimates the cost to replace the motor at $112 to $191 for parts and labor.
