So what do you have for voltage at the battery? Sounds like the alternator went bad. There should be around 14 volts at the battery with the engine running. Anything less and the alternator would be the first thing I suspected.

Why are my vents stuck on defrost mode?

First question is to ask yourself do you put item on your dash that could fall into the defrost vent this could be the simple answer to you problem. How old is the vehicle, is the vent system vacuum operated , hoses cracked or broken, vac solenoid not working properly.

A cigar fell into my front air vent/air dirstribution system of my 2007 HHR

Remove the vent cover to expose the raw opening of the vent. Do not change your selector switch, opening up internal junction points could cause the item to fall further into the system. Place the hose of a shop-vac into the exposed opening, and using a rag, plug up the remaining open spaces around the hose. You should be able to remove the item at this point by simply turning on the vacuum. It may take a couple tries of turning off and on again, depending on how complex your duct system is, and how deep the item has fallen. But, you'll get it eventually. In your case, the item is very light in comparison to the relative surface area that with react to the vacuum, so this should do the trick.

2001 mercury cougar steering wheel?

Don't listen to that guy!!!! you need to take the plastic cover behind the steering wheel. there are two bolts holding the air bag in t30 (torx) then the air bag falls right off. then the steering wheel is held in by a 15 mm head bolt.
Warning: make sure battery is disconnected for at least 30 min before you mess with the air bag connector
