Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
The heating / air conditioning control knob on my dodge durango isn't working properly. When you change the settings on the knob, (5-6 different settings) it is supposed to switch vents depending on what you choose. The heat/air works but the everything is coming out the front defrost vents and none of the other vents are working. When I choose "max AC" it is supposed to come out the vents on the front of the dash, but instead it is going to the defrost vents, causing the outside of the windows to steam. Is there a relay or something that that controls the changing of vents, and did it burn out? How hard is it to replace? I supposed it is buried in the dash and is really hard to get at..
Dodge does not use vacuum to control the heat settings on the durango. There is a servo motor and cams that control the dampers in the pleneum for the heat, dash vents, floor and defrost.

Thanks for the info! Same problem on my 1994 Chevy Van. Stuck on Defrost. Found the deteriorating vacuum line in less than 1 minute. Trimmed it back a little an walla, fixed!! I'll get some new vacuum hoses soon and replace these shortly. Thanks again...

2005 durango: the AC front stopped working. The fan doesn't even run. The rear AC works just fine. What causes this?
