Question about 2005 Kia Sorento

Fan blower will only blow in dash and not in defroster

I have a 2005 kia sorento v6 and when the car is not running it will blow on defroster. However when the car is running it will not transfer to defroster. Seems like an air problem maybe. the car runs fine.

My air condition is not blowing

More than likely it's your blower motor resistor, but first thing is first check for blown fuses. If fuses are all intact locate the resistor which is usually located under the dash on the passenger side close to the blower motor case.( which will be a black plastic cylindrical box) The resistor will have a wiring harness running to it. With the key in the on position and the fan turned full on slowly move the harness around if the fan starts working, you have a bad connection or broken resistor. Which is common since people accidentally catch the wires with their feet or stretching on a long trip. If you replace the resistor disconnect your battery first, resistor is usually held in with a couple of screws, remove and be careful when installing new resistor they can be a bit fragile, best of luck!

The A/C won't blow out the 2 main vents in the dash. It only blows out the side vents by each door. Also, after running about 30-45 minutes the A/C loses almost all power and there is barely any air...

Possible that the vent control is blocked or is being turned off. you will need to check this out or it can be fault within the blower, the vent control or a physical block.
The loss of cooling can be due to many reasons and it can be related to clogged evaporator, faulty, compressor, low gas or faulty fan/condensor.
I think you must take consensus before any part is changed, check all the controls, check fan or it might need a resetting of the blower/evaporator unit.

There is a leaf ( i think ) stuck in the blower for the air or heat to blow through the vents

lol thats gotta be annoying. you might have to take a part the dash or glove box in order to get it your blower. in my car i had to take out the whole glove box in order to get to my blower. there is probably some kind of guard over the fan so you can either take that off or use 1 of them reach tools and reach thru and grab that little bugger

2005 Kia Sorento only blows hot and cold air on high. Is it a blower motor resistor and if it is where is it located?

If the blower moter only works on hi speed it is the blower motor resistor that is bad. The blower motor resistor is located under the passenger side of the dash next to the blower motor. It is not necessary to remove the blower motor to change the resistor.

The transfer is vacuum actuated. Check that all vacuum hoses are attached and not broken and cracked and losing vacuum to the actuator switch and motors.
