Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy
In my 1996 GMC Jimmy, the air conditioning works, that is, the air is cooled, but the vent will only blow the cooled air at the windshield, as if I have it set to defrost, and by my feet. It will not direct the cool air into the cab when I turn the switch.
Your problem is more likely related to the Door Blend Actuator, is either stuck or defecive.
Click on the link below for a diagram of the location of the door blend actuator. Remove it and manualy activate the door shaft to make sure is not stuck, then reconnect electrical plug to the actuator and activate the controls to see if it is working properly. It is not unusual for the actuator to fail after 14 yrs. of use. I recommend replacement.
