GM had a bulletin regarding this several years ago. There can be an air leak from the cowl into the heater box. You need to remove the trim on the cowl by the wipers. Under that you find a oval shaped metal plate that is sealed with caulk on the pass side. You need to scrape the caulk off and with a chisel break the plate loose and remove it. Inside of that is a passageway that supplies air to the heater. The seam inside that passage is leaking and allowing cold air to come in behind the glovebox. Seal the seam up with caulk, or sealant. I have used the sticky alum foil tape. It's a little easier to work with. Doesn't have to be pretty. Replace the cover and hold it down with a couple sheet metal screws and recaulk around the edge.

Where is the 1996 Volvo blower motor resistor located?

It is in the dash board behind the glove compartment and inside the ventilation duct. It is held in by one screw and has a flat plug going into it. To access it, removed the glove compartment housing and the panel beneath the glove box. Then remove the SRS air back plate which has 3 nuts holding it on. The you will be able to see the blower motor and resistor. The dash board comes apart with a torx bit, I forget the size.

No heat or cold air will come out of my2004 Mitsubishi Galant. I took off the dash panel behind the glove box to get to the Blend Door Motor, but after turning the air from hot to cold at various speeds,...

Does the air blows through the dash board vents. Does the selector is functional, that means you can force the air stream through wind shield, or vents or down to the legs. If these things are OKthen check CONTROL PANEL.
Remove the trim plate surrounding the center instrument panel. Detach the electrical connectors and remove the control panel.

A/c does not blow out of the dash on my 2002 ford expedition but instead blows out of the defrost. i understand that this is probably a vacuum leak somewhere and my question is where should i look?

your director/deflector motor being it vacuum or electric is either soooo dirty or inoperable it can't send air thru proper ductwork,it needs to operate(move air dams) so air is channeled toward proper ductwork, its usually behind glove box
by where Heater- a/c enters vehicle compartment from engine side
