Save yourself much time and money on costly auto repairs by learning to troubleshoot problems on your own. Air conditioning problems can sometimes be an easy fix.
Adjust the air controls on the dashboard. If they seem to work properly, but have no effect on the air at all then a fuse will need to be replaced. In a Ford Taurus, the fuse box is located near the brakes below the steering wheel. Pry off the panel and replace fuse number 12 with a replacement fuse.
Check the control panel next if the air conditioning controls do not work as they should. They should offer the right amount of resistance and click into place in the right spots.
