The heater and air conditioner work just fine . the only problem is that the directional device whatever that is doesn't put the air out the vents or floor , it only puts air out the windshield defroster. where do I go from here to fix the problem?

The system is designed to default to the defrost mode when there is an issue. Usually, it is caused by a loss of vacuum to the a/c/heater control panel. The vacuum line goes from the engine, through the firewall and into the car and connects to the control panel. Also, there is a vacuum storage reservoir under the hood to store vacuum so when you go up a steep hill, the system won't go to defrost mode due to lack of vacuum.

Check the vacuum lines and reservoir for leaks and proper connection. Usually it's a thin, black hard plastic line under the hood. report back.

2008 Jeep Liberty-My heater was barely warm-blowing fine tho. Was told I had a plugged heater core and needed a new one. Had a new heater core put in and then my air conditioner stopped blowing cold air....


I woild be checking the vent controls as if the ac is working and the core was blocked then the air would be cool when the heat was selected but not changing Fixing the heater has resulted in a /c not being good enough to cool the air if the vent is not properly selecting. The point is that if the vent selection is not working properly (vacuum hoses) then the 2 faults will be related.

Lowheater (temp) output


It could be your blend door or not enough flow through your heater core. Try removing the heater hoses at the heater core and flushing both directions with a garden hose!

Air conditioner suddenly stops blowing cold and starts blowing heated air. Control panel indicates that it is still on air conditioner. Switching the control from vent to cold does not have any effect. ...


If you are absolutely confident the AC compressor is not kicking out on low pressure then it is the blend door actuator.

The blend door determines how much air blows through the heater core or evaporator.

The actuator can be purchased at dealer and maybe at a local part store.

My Defrost doesn't work


Check to see if the duct hose to the defroster vents has come loose. If air is blowing out under the dash when you have the control set to defrost, then this is likely.

98 Olds LLC - AC works but fan air does not blow


If you have a late model GM car and the system is controlled electronically the blend door actuator becomes weak. When this situation occurs it will not move the air direction door inside of the heater/air conditioner plenum. in your case not to the vents Replace the actuator with new and recheck the system. i hope this helps
