My fan cotrol seem fine and my vent control switch will turn A/C off, but it only allows it to come out of the defrost vents.

SOURCE: There is no air flow
You need part GM Part number 89018675 or ACDelco 15-73596. The Mode Selector Actuator. What happens is the part is a CHEAP part POORLY designed and when it goes to turn the flaps inside the HVAC unit its the plastic gear slips instead of turning the flap!!!
Just to forward you you might want a deal to install this art for you unless your good at fixing your own vehicle, because you need SMALL sockets and a lot of patience to get this part in!!!
The part is ALMOST directly above the steering shaft for your steering wheel, so theres a lot you got to remove before you will even see them!!!
I only recommend you to have a dealer put this part in for you, unless you have your own service manual!!
Because there is 5 of these darn things and if you pick the wrong one you will have to do it all over again!!!
3 on the Drivers side and 2 on the Passengers side!!
But replacing this part SHOULD solve all your problems!! AS it did for me and i was having the same issues as you have described!!

You more than likely have a vacume hose that has come off at the vent switch or under the hood. Unfortunatly you will have to pull the vet switch out of the dash to see if there are any vac. lines off. You can visibly inspect the rubber and plastic vacume lines under the hood. Just be careful how you handle the plastic lines as they become brittle from the heat under the hood after a period of time.

There is a vacuum leak under the hood. Find the vacuum line on the passenger side where it comes through the firewall and follow it to the engine. You system needs vacuum to operate and without it the default setting is on defrost for safety reasons.
