Depending on what system is in that truck you may have a bad blend door motor or a vacuum leak, check around the engine for ant vacuum leaks or dissconnected lines, if its controled by selector motor then motor may be bad, this motor move the door to contorl which way the air comes out ,like defrost or vent or floor, the actuator motor is located under the dash bolted to heaterbox, this may be hard for you to find as there are 3 ,actuator motors, they control the recirculation door then one for temp and last the selector actuator. the best way to locate bad is to locate one at a time and watch as you move all heat controls until you find the one that doesnt move, that will be the bad one. hope this helps.

    Its most likely your blower motor located behind your glove box, i have fixed the same problem.
    also, i would recommend checking your vaccuum lines for leaks, tears, or an unplugged connection.

    thanks,

SOURCE: my ac only blows from defrost and floor

Look for vacuum leaks. System is designed to fail in defrost mode. so.... vac hose off, for example, would cause an issue like you describe.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 dodge

I would have to say the resistor also. Cheap part and the labor is free when you do it yourself. It should be located behind your glovebox.

SOURCE: ac will not blow thru ac vents, only thru defrost vents.

if vent doors are operated by vacuum check for loose or broken vacuum hoses in the engine compartment , or check the fuse box for any ac/heat fuses if it is a electricaly controoled system

What causes the ac to blow cold in the rear but warm air in the front?


These vehicles came with 2 types of ac controls.
The vacuum control system uses vacuum to actuate the vents and ducting from hot to cold. A lot of times the HVAC vacuum line in the engine bay (black hard plastic) is either broken or disconnected from its vacuum source.
The electronic vent control: does everything at the control knob via vent actuators and the control panel itself. With this one it could be any of the components. You would have to locate them and verify operation by moving temp/vent selector.

My 97 dodge ram has no air coming from ac/heat vents in dash except for the top vents next to windshield. no air coming out at all of any kind all across front of dash.


Your ac blower doors that direct the air to the vents are vaccum controlled check your vaccum lines going to the ac most of the time it is a leak near the vaccum check valve. The reason it is only top vents is because it is the default setting in the system

The knob has vacuum hose that is attached to an acutator that moves the flap inside the venting controlling the direction of the air flow. The vent can get stuck, or the acutator can become leaky and faulty.
