the problem is a vacumm leak , the control panel works with vacumm from engine supplied by small hoses and also have an vacumm tank under right front fender , check for disconnected hoses or break, the main vacumm hose is on engine intake manifold, ahh , also check control panel

Well, either you have a blown fuse. (Check your fuse panel)
Your resistor/relay has burned out. (It will be on the passenger side under the dash and will be wired and connected between the controls and the blower motor which should look burnt if bad)
Your blower motor has burned out which can be tested by applying 12 volts directly to it.
The resistor will be around $25 and the blower motor will be much more. You can get everything from a Ford Dealer or an auto parts store once you figure out what is bad.

Your going to have to replace the switch. The switch it self may have gone bad, since it works on a vacuum. It's common for the diaphragm in the switch assembly to go bad, if it's not the switch. Then it's going to be a bad actuator door and will need to be freed up. I have found it to be the switch it self get dirty and the vacuum needed to activate the actuator door is not there.
Good luck and keep me posted. When you turn the switch from defrost to heater, do you hear a air leak??? If you do then it's a good chance that it's the switch it self.
