Hopefully someone has ran into this and can help me out. I have 2016 Ford Taurus with 73k miles. If I’m not going above let’s say 30MPH my ac is warm, and my will show the temp gauge about 3/4 or more of the way up to hot. I just replaced the thermostat, coolant temperature sensor, ambient air temperature sensor, ac condenser, and expansion valve only for it to still be doing it. Does anyone have any ideas? I’m not gonna lie I’m barely better than a novice when it comes to this stuff so I’ll try my best to understand and give responses. Thanks everyone!

Have you used a scan tool to see what temperature the ECT is reporting to the PCM?

Yes, it’s not actually overheating. I wonder if I have plug in my ac system somewhere?

I don’t believe so, I didn’t see anything when I changed my ambient air temp sensor. Drove home today with no AC, but now it’s not reading outside temp at all and the temp gage is reading low.

Poor ground issue?? Might want to check / clean major grounds with special attention to the PCM ground..... just grasping at straws here....

Do you know how to use FORScan to check for Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)? It could be your HVAC module. I’d start with a low mileage salvage one and switch it out.
