The zone nine is for the compass you need to calibrate the compass. and then you temp will work again. check the owners manual if you do not have one call the service department at a ford dealer they should be able to help you.

Warm air coming from driver side vent & driver side dash vent when a/c is on in my ford explorer

Lights are out on one side of the dash how to fix

Take the dash apart and replace the small bulbs. Also you can buy the Chilton Book from any Advance or Auto Zone for around 19.99 and it will have step by step instructions and pictures of any repairs that you may ever need on your vehicle. Hope this helps
