My ac will not blow alot of air through the vents,although it can be heard like it is pretty high or max.


Sounds like the vent selector is not switching it all the way to the vents. Its probally getting stuck on the floor output or defrost. Is it digital are cable driven? Try turning the fan speed to the lowest setting, switch it to defrost, then back to vent and turn the fan back up to hi.

When i use the normal A/C Or Max A/C, cold air comes out like normal. When I turn to floor or panel/floor, it seems like the a/c is still blowing. Am I missing something here? Isn't there a fresh air vent...


could have a vent not opening properly. be sure nothing has fallen down defrost vent. as you change positions on dial should change where air comes out.

My AC air registers only have air coming out of the defrost ducts


In every car, there are fins or flaps inside the dash that rotate that distributes the air flow from the blower to the desired opening, ie defrost, floor etc... This flap is controlled by a linkage which is connected to the selector switch. It may be the linkage is no longer connected, or the fins inside the dash are stuck. If the selector switch moves freely with little or no resistence its possible the linkage is no longer connected, otherwise the flaps need to be physically looked at.

Ac and heat will not blow threw vents just floor and defrost


Sounds like your selector switch is messed up to select where you want the flow of air to go. When you turn the switch to where you want the air to go does it work on floor and when you turn the switch to vent it doesn't?

HVAC vent selector does not function. Air flow is


THe blend door seems to be stuck. When you change settings from defrost to floor air or, vent, the blend door opens and closes directing the air to the place you want it to go to. I have had some success spraying a lubricating oil such as WD40 under the dash on the blend door. You need to get under the dash with a flashlight to locate it. It looks like a flap. Spray it with a couple of shots of the WD40. Go easy on the spraying as you may be inhaling the fumes. Keep the doors and windows open to minimize the fumes. Wait about 1/2 hour and try the A/C functions. (defrost, floor, vent air)

2007 F-150 Supercrew Lariat Cabin Air Filter


According to the shop manual you do not have one.
Air Distribution and Filtering adobe.gif Printable View (79 KB) NOTE: The air distribution system of this vehicle cannot be equipped with a cabin air filter.
There are 2 sources of air available to the air distribution system:
  • Outside air
  • Recirculated air
Recirculated air is automatically used when the electronic manual temperature control mode selector is set in the MAX A/C or OFF modes and can be selected in any mode other than MAX A/C, OFF or DEFROST by selecting the RECIRC button. Recirculated air is available in all modes except DEFROST. If the vehicle is equipped with an electronic automatic temperature control (EATC) system, recirculated air is used in OFF and is available in all modes except DEFROST. RECIRC mode is a timed function in FLOOR and FLOOR/DEFROST.
Air distribution within the vehicle is determined by the electronic manual temperature control (EMTC) function selector switch position, or is controlled by the EATC system in the AUTOMATIC mode. The air distribution mode on EATC vehicles may be overridden by the driver if desired. Air distribution doors are used to direct airflow within the heater core and evaporator core housing and the plenum chamber. An electronic mode door actuator is used to position these air distribution doors. One air inlet mode door is used to switch between FRESH or RECIRC air inlet. An electric actuator is used to position the air inlet mode door.
Air enters the passenger compartment from the:
  • instrument panel A/C registers.
  • heater outlet floor ducts.
  • windshield defroster duct.
  • side window demisters.
  • center flow-through console (if equipped).
Passenger compartment air is exhausted from the vehicle through open windows or body air vents.

Turned air condition on, went to turn it off (button out) light is still on and color of light is green when on or off 2009 kia rio.


I may be able to help but, I need some more information. When you turned on your A/C what was the vent selector set at (Floor, Face, Defroster)?

Most newer cars with A/C systems have a built in setting when you set your vent selector to Defrost mode (blowing on the windshield) that automatically turns on the A/C unit. This is normal due to the fact that a fogged up windshield is from water vapor and the A/C does an awesome job of drying the air so it can more effectively and quickly remove that annoying water vapor from your windshield so you can see better while driving.

Try changing the vent selector to full face vent (the vents from the dashboard that you can adjust) and switch on/off the A/C and see if that solves your problem.
