There is a vacuum leak in the vent system... look under the dash and you will see the vacuum hoses ..listen for a leak... also near the brake booster in the engine compartment you will see a plastic cannister about the size of a film cannister... most likely white... that may be unhooked or need replacement.

My ac will not blow alot of air through the vents,although it can be heard like it is pretty high or max.


Sounds like the vent selector is not switching it all the way to the vents. Its probally getting stuck on the floor output or defrost. Is it digital are cable driven? Try turning the fan speed to the lowest setting, switch it to defrost, then back to vent and turn the fan back up to hi.

REPLACED BLOWER MOTOR CONTROL MODULE...Now blower is working but not very much air flowing out of vents! Fan speed is working...it heat and cools. but still not adequate air flow from the vents ..2000...


check your blower hoses to see if one or more have come loose or got redirected or the selector switch isn't functioning properly (is it blowing better on defrost as opposed to floor vents, or forward vents, etc.)
Good luck

Heater only blowing out defrost vents


Open your hood and find a "T" connector right near the battery. Follow the line down below the battery (you will have to get under the Jeep). You will see that the line plugs into a 3 to 4 inch section of 3/16" tubing that is plugged onto a black in color, plastic box. Use a razor knife and trim off about 1/2" of this 3/16" tubing as it commonly cracks where it fits on the nipple of the black plastic box. The vacuum cannot build pressure properly with these cracks in this tubing, and therefore cause the selector door to malfunction when operating heat and a/c. It is a quick and easy five minute fix.

Find Someone else,
Have Them Replace The Fan Selector Switch,
There Is Only 1 Fan In The System, Since You Can Select Between Defrost, Dash, Floor,
But Cannot Control Fan Speed/Shut-Off Fan.
I Would Replace The " Fan Selector Switch" Installed In Your Heater-A/C Controller Unit
Mounted In Your Dash.
