It is common for condensation to accumulate in the evaporator core and cause an odor. There are air freshoners that can be sprayed through the fresh air intake and help sometimes. Contact the ford dealer.

The most likely cause is an inoperative radiator fan.

There is no such thing as and air-conditioner accumulator in an automobile. A nonworking air-conditioner compressor can cause a cooling malfunction.

If you need a diagram to service an air conditioner, then you need to hire a professional. A technician has to be MACS certified to even check an a/c. You may cause more damage than you already have.

many times it'd the run capacitor (that cylinder) where the wires from the fan run. if the fan is turned on and you hear a hum, tap the blade. if the fan turns, then that's the problem.

A bad thermostat can cause overheating in a Nissan Frontier when the air conditioning is turned on. A bad compressor can also cause this.

This was my question- I went to the dealership- there was mud/dirt on the fan. This made the car shake when the heater/air conditioner was turned on. All they did was spray the fan off with a garden hose. It works perfect now!

unless the air conditioner is on the same circuit and drawing enough power to hinder the computer, or there is enough humidity to cause condensation on the computer, no. computers love to be cold.
