1998 Tarus SE Heater problem

Hello, All!
The Heater no longer produces very hot air, only slightly warm. When the
dash switch is set to a heater position the AC compressor runs. Should it
run on heat? I think it is supposed to run on defrost, but heat?
I have flushed the cooling system, but I suspect the problem is electrical.
This first became apparent after the Rack and Pinion unit was replaced. Is
there any electrical connection that could have been disturbed when that
work was done? I can;'t see anything that looks wrong around the rack.

Thanks for any thoughts.
Paul

Re: 1998 Tarus SE Heater problem

I had a 98 SE also but I don't remember the compressor running on the Heat
setting. From my experience with Ford products, they tend to have electrical
problems requently. Electrical and electronics seems to be Ford's "Achilles
heel". Other than that, my 98 Taurus SE was a very nice car.
