SOURCE: The knob that controls the doors to the HVAC vents is stuck

TRY CAREFULLY DISCONECT THE CABLE AT THE BLEND DOOR AND 1. TRY WORKING THE KNOB,
IF WILL NOT MOVE YOU NEED A NEW CABLE.
.2 GENTLY TRY MOVING THE BLEND DOOR BY HAND. THIS SHOULD GIVE YOU THE DEFROST FOR NOW. IF IT WON'T MOVE YOU SHOULD TAKE IT TO A GOOD SHOP THERE ARE A LOT OF SMALL AND EASLY BROKEN PARTS IN THE HEATER BOX. A DAMAGED BEND DOOR ALLWAYS RUINS THE CABLE SO IT WOULD NEED TO BE REPLACE TOO.

SOURCE: '94 Camry windshied defroster gets no air flow.

The problem concerning the no air flow out the defrost duct on my mom's 94 Toyota Camry is that the rod link from the electric actuator to the vent / defrost flap became disconnected way up under the center left side under the dash. I had to remove the lower air duct from under the steering column for access to use a 1 inch hole saw to make an access hole on the upper side of the case tube opening to see where the rod came off the lever. I went to the local Toyota dealer to try to buy a retainer clip but the part guy told me that it was only sold as a complete housing piece which was very expensive and involved removing a big portion of the dash pad assembly to replace the housing.
At this point , I plan on reconnecting the rod to the lever by simply installing a special washer style retainer on to the end of the rod to keep it connected. You might find a retainer like this one in a carberator repair kit.

Vents won't blow hot or cold air. Comes from defrost and feet when you put fan on.


It's the vent actuator, it moves the baffle that changes the direction of the air flow.
Here is a video of a broken vacuum hose that creates the same problem.

It could also be a failed actuator.

Air only comes out defrost in all settings


I just fixed mine. The lever that opens and closes a door that directs the air flow to the defroster was broken. To be more specific, the plastic lever the actuator attaches to was broken. The actuator and the vacuum system were operating properly. It is simple to see but hard to get to. Remove the glove box and look up and to the left for a silver vacuum controlled actuator. I was able to fabricate another lever and attach it to what was left of the OEM lever.

The Air flows through only the defrost and feet vents


Inside the ventilation system there is gates that open and close to direct the air flow. These are operated on vacuum on most vehicles. The hose for that perticular gate may have disconnected somehow or has a hole in it. I suggest you take the heater controls out and see if there is a plug with a series of colored hoses on it. it so you'll have to trace each of them to see which one is the problem. Now you may be able to get some help from you local dealers mechanic who just may know the color code for that gate. (which would be a bonus) Good Luck

Turned air condition on, went to turn it off (button out) light is still on and color of light is green when on or off 2009 kia rio.


I may be able to help but, I need some more information. When you turned on your A/C what was the vent selector set at (Floor, Face, Defroster)?

Most newer cars with A/C systems have a built in setting when you set your vent selector to Defrost mode (blowing on the windshield) that automatically turns on the A/C unit. This is normal due to the fact that a fogged up windshield is from water vapor and the A/C does an awesome job of drying the air so it can more effectively and quickly remove that annoying water vapor from your windshield so you can see better while driving.

Try changing the vent selector to full face vent (the vents from the dashboard that you can adjust) and switch on/off the A/C and see if that solves your problem.
