Front defrost not working 2004 Pacifica

My heat and AC work great, problem is, I am only getting air from the vents, nothing is coming out at my feet or the defrost. Is this a blower motor problem, if so what is the cost to replace this?

    my front defrost takes forever to work, any solutions?

    Just bought our Pacifica 04 and love it except for the defrost issue. We live in Canada and the defrost not working is definitely a safety issue. I searched and haven't found anyone complaining about it. Maybe I missed it?

    My defrost and foot heat blowers quit blowing today. I have checked for cracks and any gaps and have not found anything obvious. I live in Alaska and cannot drive with these being non-functional. I have a 2004 Pacifica also.

    I too have the same problem. What is the cost of fixing this problem if I was to take it to a mechanic? I am not sure I can find the vaccum line that was refered to.

    Heat comes out front vents only, no floor, no defrost. 3rd time, and now out of warranty. Dealer told me they replaced entire system 4 months ago, and the parts alone were over 500 bucks! HELP! Does anyone know how to manually "open the gate" for the floor.....our feet are FREEZING!

I did not have defroster or venting to the feet. All I had was vent. I brought it to the shop they replaced the mode door actuator which flips the doors inside to make it flow to the defrost or vent etc; This cost me $210.00. They had to take the dash apart plus disengage the air bag under the steering wheel to get to the actuator.

Many air directors are driven by vacuum lines. Look for a line going from the engine manifold through the firewall. Look closely at it for cracks or breaks. Take it off and check that the fitting it goes onto pulls your thumb toward the engine. You can test the vacuum actuation with a vacuum tester purchased at a parts store, it should move the air director and then hold a vacuum without leaking down too fast. A good mechanic will have such a tester, but it's usually cheaper to buy one. Get the combination engine compression and vacuum guage if you can, it might come in handy later, especially when you're buying a used car or engine.

My AC and Heater blower isn't working in the front vents of my 2004 Chrysler Pacifica what is the problem

If the air blows out of all of your other vents then you have either had an actuator go bad which controls which ducts the air flows through, or the shaft that has the "flap" on it has popped loose and no longer moves which will only allow air to go to the vents that are not locked. The easiest way to find out would be to get under the dash and start at the fan and trace air flow til you find the problem.

2004 Chrysler Pacifica--air conditioner/heater is not blowing in the front at all!! No defrost eithet--nothing! However, it does blow in the back but it is warm air even when the air conditioner is on. I...

You would need to know if the ac line is cold to each evaporator. Then if the blower motor for the front is getting power and ground. If the blower motor is running but no air is coming out the vents, you would need to check the blend doors under the dash.
It could be separate problems, or the PCM or ac control head on the dash.

Heat/air vents for defrost and feet setting not working. Air only blows from center vents. Is there a vacuum line or electric switch to control the air flow to lower and upper settings on my 2004 Chrysler...

I think your problem is mechanical. There is a distribution box behind thedash where flaps divert air to the specific locations although they may be electrically or vacuum actuated it is probably a mechanical linkage to these flaps or something is creating an obstruction. Check all the other connections while you are in there including any duct work to these areas

Heating / air conditioning control stuck to front defrost vents

There is a vacuum leak under the hood. Find the vacuum line on the passenger side where it comes through the firewall and follow it to the engine. You system needs vacuum to operate and without it the default setting is on defrost for safety reasons.

you have an operating trampilla ,sorry i only know the word in spanish,the valve thats worked by engine vacumn it opens the vent flap ,the block connection for the vacumn pipe has a series of electrical operating relays that open the valve that lets the vacumn through to the appropiate vents where it opens the trampilla .The fault could lie in either the clima computer or a relay valve or the rubber diaphragm in the trampilla,best of british with it
