How can I fix a Mode/Blend Door Actuator problem on a 1996 GMC Savana van.

the may have a mouse nest in the air box. I have seen this same problem before. you'll need to remove the glove box and then the four or six screws ( can't remember witch) from the air box and you'll be able to see the doors, heater core and evaporator. the nest will probably be all over in there.

Air blows out dash vents but not with the force it blows out the floor can watch acctuator motor move door to all positions

Either the flap that switches positions from floor/defrost/vents is stuck, or a vacuum line has came off, or there is a nest or other clog either in the fan's squirel cage or in the vent itself

I would remove the heater fan and clean out the mouse nest. They probably climbed into the system through the outside vent.

I have a mouse nest in defroster , how do i get in the vent system to clean it out?

You may get lucky enough to be able to just remove blower motor for access hole, then use a mirror, fjashlight & shop vac as well as dust mask. Not a fun job, but gotta be done. "whew!"

Heating system outlets

1st, the fuse location is marked, what is the 20 Amp fuse for? 2nd, did the smoke have a nauseating sweet smell to it? If it smells like described it is the heater core leaking, coolant steam looks like smoke.

Defroster,heater,vents,airconditionig not working when turned on

With the engine off, radio too, turn the key on and try the heater fan on all speeds. No fan, check the fuses. Fan is ok, check the coolant level, if thats fine, then check for a mouse nest in the duct work. Frankster016
