Vents won't blow hot or cold air. Comes from defrost and feet when you put fan on.

It's the vent actuator, it moves the baffle that changes the direction of the air flow.
Here is a video of a broken vacuum hose that creates the same problem.

It could also be a failed actuator.

My 2005 ford focus ... the defroster button is on defrost and no air comes out of the defroster to the front windshield but blows out at your face and feet??? trying to get this fixed before snow flies...

well if it blows out at your feet you know the blower is running (as it's a common problem for blower motor shaft to rust up from AC condensate drain plugged up) but in your case it sounds like the air diverter damper arm actuator is broken or just stuck (yes it can rust too) you'll need to remove toe space cover to gain access to it on passenger side floor move heater contol back and forth to watch it move Or (NOT) you may have to free this up or replace it

No air blowing through vents

with they key switch on eng off turn on the a/c blower on can you hear it? if not you would have to check power at your blower motor if its getting power you have a bad motor if its working and there isnt air comming through theres another motor/actuator for a blend door maybe its stuck and blowing the air to your feet only or to the defrost vent...

My ac and heater are stuck in defrost and i cant figure out why i turn the dial to vents and heat but it stays in defrost

It all depends on whether your truck is equipped with Automatic Climate Control or Manual HVAC. You could have a broken control head assembly a broken mode door cable, a failed electronic mode door actuator, a broken mode door, or a loose or broken wire or connector.

To put it simply, your mode doors are not swithching modes - the reason for this can vary depending on which system you have.

I have a 2005 GMC Envoy. I had a battery issue that has been fixed. I am not sure if this is related or that I just noticed. 1. My headlights stay on even though there is plenty of light outside/daytime...

1. The headlights are working as designed. These are Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and are on during daylight, but at a lowered intensity. At night they go to full intensity.

2. It sounds like the HVAC system may have lost calibration after the battery issue. Try turning all HVAC controls off or to their full CCW positions, then disconnect the battery for about 5 - 10 minutes. Reconnect the battery and don't touch any thing for a few minutes. If this does not make your AC work again, you may have a problem with one of the blend doors or its actuator motor. BTW, there is no vacuum operating the HVAC system, it is all electric.

The heater will not blow out of the vents even though the fan works fine

mine did that while trying to fix the recirculator flap and it fell flat on top of the blower which cut off the suction. i pulled the blower motor out and reached up in there to get to it. i found that the flap problem is common. only problem is if its not working it allows cold air in from outside. my wife complained her feet were cold even though the heat was on thats when i discovered my hinge on flap was broke

A/c and heater only blow air out of defrost

either a vacumn pipe is broken or the ends split so its not passing a vacumn to open the flaps,where they are and how to get to them i cant help because i have never worked on one as they are not here in spain.check the engine end first though .Look for some small rubber pipes running from the inlet manifold
