He will need to Remove the Dash panel to access that Lighter. Be careful though, If you **** stuff around it could fall down further and will not be Retrievable! Also try a ScrewDriver and Some 3M Double sided Tape through the Vent, This could work also.

    Really the Easiest way is to get a Haynes or Chilton Manual for that Car. They cost 25.00 But, are worth there weight in gold on things like this. The Auto Parts store has them or you can go to their Websites and get them there.

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. If this vehicle is operated electrically (vent solenoid) then then it most likely the solenoid not working properly

1996 oldsmobile bravada, Air blows through defroster only. will not switch to vent or floor heat

Open your hood. You should see a ball attached to it, (just in front of the driver side). There are vacuum lines connected to a ball reservoir. Replace them. Mine were turning into dust. I had the same problem and fixing the vacuum lines corrected it. This is for a 1996 Bravada. Blazer's have the same vacuum lines, but the reservoir is not there.

Vent control for climate control does not change positions

Air will only come out of the defrost vents on the dash i assume? The defrost vent is the default position when the system looses vacuum. Under the hood look for a broken or disconnected vacuum line on or near the engine in the area of the passenger side of the firewall. You may even hear the a slight "hisss" indicating a vacuum leak. Reconnecting the line to the appropriate port will restore proper vent operation.
