Question about 2004 Ford Crown Victoria
Defrost is the default when the controller is not receiving vacuum from the intake manifold. Look for the small vacuum line going from the engine intake manifold to the firewall and trace it to the control switch. If the vacuum line looks OK, try to pull the vacuum connection from the control switch. Then start the car and see if there is vacuum coming to the connector from the line that you traced from the engine. If no vacuum, the line has a leak--retrace to the manifold. If there is vacuum, your switch is probably leaking. You can buy a new vacuum switch from Ford or some parts stores. More questions, please let me know.

there is a good chance that you blend air door is stuck closed over your heater core and therefore not allowing the heat to flow, also your door that opens and close your direction of flow from the floor ,das,vent and defrost.your going to have to remove the lower cowling of the dash on the passenger side analso some of the center dash to actually check to see if the cable,servo motors. are acuating the doors.the issue could be just a stuck door or a misaligned cable or that it came off. that falls under the mechanical side of probabilities. electrical would most likely be a faulty selector switch or a servo motor

Sounds like the switch or actuator is not operating. Some vehicles have mechanical operators, and some have vacuum actuators. If a vacuum line is loose, it will not actuate.
