2000 chevy astro van front a/c switch is out - don't push airout

The switch puts the unit on but the air isn't coming out the vents but on a/c max it comes out the defrost by the windshield and it don' t come on when on high at all. The back a/c is starting with the same problem. Where do go to buy the switches?

As for the air only blowing out of the defrost, your problem is not the switch it will be a small vacuum line that runs from the top of the engine directly behind the a/c compressor to vacuum tank located on the passenger side of the engine compartment just to the right and forward of the engine block. It is a small black tube. Once you find the break, a splice connector costs about $.20 at the parts store.

As for the fan not blowing on all speeds. Sounds like a resistor located in the blower motor housing under the hood passenger side. I just replaced mine. Costs about $45 and fixed the problem. Although these do go out with age, sometimes they indicate excessive load from the blower motor itself. If it happens again, look at that.

The air conditioning does not blow through front vents but through windshield vents, what is the problem?


This is a common problem on all Astro/Safari vans. The problem is a leak in the vaccum lines that control the vaccum switch responsible for changing air direction from the defrosters, dash vents, floor vents..etc.
Many of the problems that plaque the Astro/Sarfari vans and many other "Mini-Vans" is the build up of excess heat in the engine compartment. It\'s a tight place to put a V6-4.3 Vortec engine and the heat generated bounces back and cooks everything on the engine (coils, modules, sensors, wiring, and of course plastic vaccum hoses). No need to mess with your switches or anything behind the dash -- replace those thin plastic vaccum hoses to operate the vaccum switch (located just below the A/C canisters, to the right of the heater/ac blower housing) and your dash switches will magically send heated or cooled air where you want it.

2000 chevy astro cargo van. the heat registers on the gage but little comes out and only out defrost. thermostat????


If it is blowing hot air out of the defroster and not out of the heater vents then the door that directs the heat from the defroster isn't working properly it is blocking the heat from going to the heater vents. Also check the cold air door. It sounds like it isn't closing all the way to shut off the cold air and not letting the hot air pass.

The mode control switch is either defective or the switch has no vacuum, the motors that send the air to different outlets are powered by vacuum.
