SOURCE: When turned to defrost, no

The vent flap foam lining has come loose and needs to be removed or reglued . A spray on contact adhesive works best , don't glue the flap to the vent casing.

SOURCE: 2000 VW Golf Defroster, Vents, Stopped Blowing at any Speed

Look in your owner's manual index and turn to the page about Fuses.  It will tell you where to find the blower motor fuse.  Use needle nose pliers to remove it, hold it up to the light and look to see if the aluminum strip inside is blown.  Replace with a fuse of the same amperage rating, it should be around 20 Amp, the numbers are stamped on the fuse.  Fuses are widely available at car parts stores and department stores Kmart Walmart ect.

SOURCE: Air conditioning/heat/defroster controls do not work

I think u r right. this is a problem that most certainly requires a skilled technician to solve If u dont know of anyone who is good at this problem that leaves only the dealer and of course they are going to sockit to you. get an estimate.. it might be a good idea to check all your fuses first. then look under the hood for any loose vacum lines. dont forget your fuses under the hood usually in a plastic box.

1993 mazda miata ac will only blow out defroster

The flow or travel of air through the dashboard vents, on top defroster vents, or floor vents, that is all regulated, in most vehicles of these days, by vacuum. You have a set of vacuum hoses that operate the direction and flow of air.
You probably had a hose or two, (probably more correct to use the word tubing)... You had some tubing get disconnected, or it became brittle and broke. Now you just have to locate that vacuum leak.

I have a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ and my question involves the heating/ AC unit. The air flow seems to be very strong through the Defroster but for the dash vents and the floor it seems to be much s

Defrost has been stronger on all types. Just the way plenums are made. Clear that wind shield first. As long as you have plenty of heat to keep the cabin area warm to hot, it's OK. I wouldn't woory about it.

1996 Montero Heater Blower not working

I assume your heater setting is electric control, if so either your defrost and floor heat switch failed or wire problem. For the air not hot, check the heat control valve on the top of the hose it should be in front of the firewall. I don't know your car is using mechanic valve or electric control valve. Anyway check there first. Good luck.

No heat when on floor vents but good on defrost

Look for missing, or damaged vacuum lines, your system is designed to fail in the defrost mode.

Heat and air only come out defrost on windsheild not vent or floor

The air handlers on jeep are powered by engine vaccum and when a loss of vaccum happens the air is defaulted to defrost,so under the hood on passenger side is a 1/8 small black plastic line should be plugged into a bigger rubber or plastic vaccum line sometimes after a few years the rubber boots the use get soft and washing the engine or just moving things around can unhook the small line

When I turn my vent selector to defrost on the far right (air con off)the air conditioning comes on. The dash vents will blow ambient air, but defrost setting blows air con. Any ideas?

It's normal for the A/C compressor to come on with the defroster to dehumidify the air so the windsheild won't fog up under humid conditions. You can still control the air temp. out the vents with the temp. select switch.

2002 Ford Expedition Climate Control System

you have a loss of vacuum. There is a small diameter black plastic tube from the engine compartment that feeds the climate controls. Check at back of control head, or there is a plastic connector under dash were other color tubes join to operate the other actuators of the system the black tube must have vacuum when engine is running. check under hood the black tube is spliced. separate the tube and check for vacuum The tube enters the firewall near the heater hoses.

Air does not come out the front vents only the defrost vent

This happened to me as well. These vents are controlled by vacuum. The vacuum hose beneath the passenger side cowl is probably disconnected. It is behind the engine just below the passengerside windsheild wiper. I would look for disconnected vacuum hoses. That fixed mine.
