Remove the entire center council and heater cover and remove the blender door motor while still plugged in. adjust the temp and listen for clicking sound. if it clicks then replace it because the little plastic gears are broke.

SOURCE: air conditioner problems

You have a vacuum leak.Defrost is the default postion no vacuum.
Find the small black supply line under the hood on the passenger side where it goes thru the fire wall,trace it back you should see a plastic canister then from there it goes to a vacuum port on the intake.Should find a leak somewhere in this line.

SOURCE: 1983 ford ranger 2.2 engine-no heat,full of

it may only be a blockage in your radiator. but first,shut engine off! open hood,grab radiator fan,the one with all the blades, try to move it up and down or side to side. no fluid comes out? is there alot of play in the fan? if so,bad water pump.i'm not saying the plastic fan moves back and forth,it should. do you feel or hear metal moving,banging? if so bad pump.looking for the heater acuator? ok open hood, passenger side under the passenger side wiper, look further down under wiper at dash panel. you'll be looking for a plunger type assembly that operates on vacum. the hose[vacum] connects directly to an inlet thats close to where it's located. BUT in older models,which i'm not sure,you fall right at the brink when they changed models. look under dash, passenger may have to drop glove box down,simple,on each side at top of the glove box grab left @right side of glove box,pull both sides inwards towards middle,that will let glove box drop down, look for heateracuator there,you may have to even move it by hand,look for a round cylinder type object with a rod attached to it.push the rod inwards[towards drivers side] and heat should flow.if you have to prop it open[think cowboy]wooden stick,whatever it takes to keep you warm,it dont matter! hope this helps

SOURCE: 2005 Freestar "door open signal"

Chances are the autolock doesn't work because it "sees" a door open. Check the plunger between the door and the frame of each door to see if the plunger is broken, bent, or otherwise not working.

Vacuum hose heater line

If the heater door controls are vacuum operated, you will have a hose from the engine enter the firewall and go to the back of the heater controls, where it enters a connector with several hoses going to places on the heater case where they work the doors by actuators-diaphragms that retract with vacuum applied causing doors to open or close.
Begin with ensuring the vacuum hose from the engine has vacuum at the back of the heater controls with engine running-just pull off the right hose and check for vacuum-the hoses may be color coded to help you. If you have vacuum there, reconnect that hose and move to the actuators on the heater case, check if vacuum signal is routed there. Check the actuators for proper operation-sometimes they fail. And sometimes things that fall into vents get caught in the doors and jam up. Good luck, hope you find the problem.

A/C will only blow through defrost vents

Common question on this site. On late model cars, the vents are controlled by blend door motors. Small electric motors open and close doors to direct air flow.
Chances are you have a blend door that is stuck or a failed motor.
The default position is the defrost to make sure the windshield is always clear.
Someone will need to look behind the dash to see if all of the doors will move on demand.

Have ford f150 1996 wont switch to heat from cold replaced switch already

96' or 97' it makes a big difference. 96' models are very simple if you have a basic understanding of automotive work and some basic tools. remove the glove box, the heater core is located behind a panel just inside and below the glove box hole. first remove the plastic panel but not the heater core, to the left of the heater core inside the box is the blend door that separates the heater and A/C cores. this door is often obstructed by pens, pencils, or plastic junk that have fallen down into the defrost vents on top of the dash and landed in the box. something like this will stop the blend door from being able to close the A/C core off from the vents allowing cold air in. if you have big hands like mine you may need a woman or teenager to reach into the box and check for debris but you can see the door open and close when you turn the switch so you know where to check. if you have a 97' model the blend door actuator is electric and usually not accessible without removing the dash and heater/A/C box from the firewall. good luck

My '99 century's heater/air conditioner will not switch settings(def.,floor, vent, etc) it will change speeds and temps only. it blows a little from the defrost a little from the vents and a little from...

sounds like there is a blockage in the heater ducts or the doors that open & close to direct the air are stuck or broken. maybe a bad blend door actuator

2000 chevy astro cargo van. the heat registers on the gage but little comes out and only out defrost. thermostat????

If it is blowing hot air out of the defroster and not out of the heater vents then the door that directs the heat from the defroster isn't working properly it is blocking the heat from going to the heater vents. Also check the cold air door. It sounds like it isn't closing all the way to shut off the cold air and not letting the hot air pass.

Climate control system only blow air out defrost vent

there is a good chance that you blend air door is stuck closed over your heater core and therefore not allowing the heat to flow, also your door that opens and close your direction of flow from the floor ,das,vent and defrost.your going to have to remove the lower cowling of the dash on the passenger side analso some of the center dash to actually check to see if the cable,servo motors. are acuating the doors.the issue could be just a stuck door or a misaligned cable or that it came off. that falls under the mechanical side of probabilities. electrical would most likely be a faulty selector switch or a servo motor

Climate control doors do not operate properly

the doors work on vacuum: look under your dash where the heater /ac box is located: look for a little hose or, a lever that has fallen off the door assembly
