Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Manual system, recently had recirc door fall off and cut air flow, I did diy fix with zip tie to secure it to the plastic grate behind glovebox. Air flow is back and working fine, but now with system off, I have air coming through the defroster which can be temp controlled by temp dial, again this is with the selection knob to OFF, air flow also gets higher at higher speeds. Also cruise control is working fine

I had the same problem and read through different forms and when I went under the hood - the vacuum line actually disconnected - put it back on and everything works great - thanks so much for your help

There is a very small black hose that provides vacuum to operate the different vacuum motors in the system through the switch you mentioned, that switch simply diverts vacuum to what ever air outlet u select, the vacuum comes from the engine, it goes through the firewall on tha passenger side, like I said it is a small black hose.

You have a vacuum leak. Look under the dash and check the placement of the vacuum hoses that activate the vent doors. One or more may have slipped or may be cracked.

There is a vacuum leak under the hood somewhere. Check the vacuum at the speed control servo. If there is no vacuum on the line with the engine running, follow the line to find the leak. The vacuum reservoir is mounted under the battery tray. I would look in that area after confirming no vacuum at the servo.
