I have a 97 Jeep, I love it but it can be a royal pain in the ***, had this problem however and a cheap cheap fix, had a hole in one of the hoses that was going to my vent. Once you find that little pesky hose you can go to any automotive repair place and get a replacement for like less than a buck and if your lucky like me they will give it to you for free!!!!!!

97 Jeep Grand Cherokee only blows heat and ac out of dashboard

There is a vacuum leak under the hood. If it's a 6 cylinder, look on the drivers side for a vacuum line that runs vertical with a 90 degree angle fitting to the manifold. That one usually comes off. If it is a V8 look on the battery side for a broken or corroded vacuum line.

Check the control cable that operates the diverter door in the heater box at both ends, to make sure that it operates the door when you move the control lever.
