This is likely the failure of the nylon gear wheel or motor within the dash which operates the interior vents.

2000 grand caravan blow cold on floor vent but not dash vents


This sounds a lot like a door actuator it is locate behind the radio part od the dash when you switch the vents like to the floor upper dash do you hear a clicking sound? put your ear to the middle of the dash where the switch to the heat / cool is and listen for the clicking sound when you change the vents direction. If you do it's the vent actuator you will have to remove the face part of the vent and it's in behind that it is usually a white plastic box it may be black but most are white. The cost is about 90 to 120 Canadian dollars.
Hope this helps good luck.

Got kids? Years ago, mine loaded the defroster ducts with toys, candy, etc.

There are actuators,(little motors) that control air flow direction and temperature control. They contain plastic gears that are know to strip.the mode actuator in your vehicle requires the removal of the dash to replace according to ProDemand. I would suggest getting a professional to scan for trouble codes and advise.

Heater clicking noise in gmc envoy


Do you hear a clicking noise when you turn your truck on? Its probably the actuator. While the defroster was on I removed the fuse locted under the rear driver side seat. I think its 36B. It stopped the clicking noise and my air vents work well now.
