Put something sticky, even gum, on the end of a piece of wire and put it down the vent and move it around.

On my 2005 Ford Taurus the air conditioning is coming out the defrost vents.


There is a flapper or trap door in the dash board that diverts air flow to various vents, defrost, floor, face, etc. If that stops working it will get stuck in the default position which is usually the defrost vents.

If you have a vacuum operated system you can check the vacuum hose for the system in the engine compartment for integrity. If that is ok then you have to get to the vacuum switch in the dashboard and probably replace it due to leaking vacuum - labor intensive and not cheap.

Any time the dashboard has to be removed you are in trouble money wise.

Why is air coming from all three areas (vents/floor/defrost) regardless of setting?


There is actually two blend door actuator that control the opening and closing of your vents. Ine is located under the drivers side dash board. The is on the passengers side. Both are electric and I didnt have the money to replace them so i removed them and turned it with a pliers to allow heat to come out of bothe sides of the vent. Then come summer flip the little bar back the other way to A/C
Hope this helps

Nothing coming from the vents when you turn on the a/c, heater, or defroster


You can jumper the fan motor to make sure it runs and if it does then look at the switch or resistor. You can also remove the resistor and omh acrossed it to make sure that it hasn't blown the fuse on risistor.

Air only comes out defrost in all settings


I just fixed mine. The lever that opens and closes a door that directs the air flow to the defroster was broken. To be more specific, the plastic lever the actuator attaches to was broken. The actuator and the vacuum system were operating properly. It is simple to see but hard to get to. Remove the glove box and look up and to the left for a silver vacuum controlled actuator. I was able to fabricate another lever and attach it to what was left of the OEM lever.

I have a 87 ford mustang 2.3 . The air conditioner will stop blowing from normal vents and blow from defroster vent. After a few minutes, it blows from the ac vents again.


There is a vacume hose going from the intake manifold to the passenger compartment. This hose has a check valve and a vacume resivore. When you steap on the gas the manifold vacume drops and the a/c goes to the default mode (defrost). The hose is small like a ball point pen's ink tube. sometimes the hose rots and leaks.

My 1997 C1500 Chevy vent issue


Your blend door is probibly not moving all the way to vent position.If you put it on vent there is probibly air blowing on floor or defrost.It may also be opening just a fraction and causing back pressure on the blower motor causing the noise.Is there any difference in outside air or recirculate?

When i go uphill the heater comes out the defroster vent instead of the dash vent but swtiches back if i let off the gas and cruse don't work


This is a normal condition. If anything fails in the vaccuum system, the air flow is directed (because of spring loading) to defrost.

during the condition that you describe, the engine vaccum drops, and devices start to loose vaccum control.

If the codition annoys you, a vacuum reservoir can be installed. They look like a coffee can....

No air or heat up to defroster and plenty of heat to vents


You can use a little shaving cream on the inside of your windshield. It will keep your windshield of fogging up. It also works in the mirrors in your bathroom near the shower / bath tub. If you don't believe me, do a search in google for shaving cream and windshield. Pretty cool, huh?

My front defroster doesn't work


Their is a vacuum actuated valve that redirects the flow of air from the panel to the defrost vents when the defrost is selected. I would check the vacuum line running to the valve while the vehicle is running with the defroster on and check whether or not the line is pulling a vacuum to actuate the valve, if not you obviously have a bad line or vacuum line fitting. If you have suction on the vacuum you will need to check the valve and see that is functioning properly. The valve is usually located under the dash on the passengers side. If you are mechanically inclined i would go to a local auto part store and pick up a repair manual for your car for about $20 as they contain diagrams and info that will save you alot of money.
