    I drove the truck this morning and the heat was working. All of the heat settings (low to high) , and also the settings on the on/off switch was working. (vents,legs,face,defrost) Then the settings only worked on the defrost. Then it all just quit. I believe it has to be the on/off switch. But who knows. But that dont explain why the defrost was working. What do you think?

    Does the blower fan work, if so on all speeds? Do you have automatic climate control?

You may have a combination problem. Your system uses electrical/vacumn. The ducts are operated by vacumn being directed to different hoses by the electrical switch. If you can get to one of the hose with the engine running, pull one off of its ports and check for vacumn.

I have a 1997 4x4 Gmc jimmy sle crossover ,300000km

Your description could indicate a misfire and as you haven't complained about a poor road performance it could be injector or compression related or perhaps an intake air leak.

A code read should indicate the reason for the flashing engine light but other than that I suggest you begin with a thorough and careful tuneup.
