Sounds like your switch could be going bad. Does your heater do the same thing?? Or can you change the heat to blow where you want it to? If the switch is bad, all you would have to do to change it is take off the trim around the heat control panel by carefully popping off the tabs, remove the screws around the control panel, and take the switch out. That would probably only be available at a Ford dealer, and be pricey.

    The ac on my 1998 ford ranger only blows out the defrost vent and floor vent. How do I fix it?

    Almost sounds like the actuators are inop. depending on which style you have, some are electrical motors and some are vacuum. These control the mode doors which move to deflect air to various vents.

    95 mustang Still tring to get air to blow out vents will only blow hot air out the defrost holes... no matter if i put it on vent or AC or heat its the same temp and it comes from the defrost holes Some...

    check the vacuum lines in the selector switch. the baffles that switch from hot air and cool air are vacuum controlled and if the lines are detached or cracked the suction will not move the baffles.

    1996 ford mustang convertible ac blows cold only from defroster

    Does it still blow out the floor and defrost when you set the switch to those positions or does it alway blow out the defrost no matter what? If you can get air to blow out to the floor, then it sounds like you lost the switch that controls the airflow to the vents. If it only blows out the defrost, then you probably lost the vacuum to all of the switches. When the vacuum is lost, it will only blow out the defrost. Check the smallest line on the vacuum distribution block located in the corner near the brake master cyclinder. That line provides the vacuum to control the direction of airflow within the cabin.
