Question about 1997 Ford Windstar
My van has both front and rear A/C. The fan blows and the compressor kicks in, but air will only come out of the defrost vents. No matter where you put the swith, air only comes out of the defrost. How do I troubleshoot the problem?
We took ff the cover and clamped off the air hose it was a leak in the hose then we re routed the hose to the ac it works now!

You probably have a vacuum leak in the hoses connecting to Temp Control switch. Remove it carefully and inspect. Those things have mini -O rings sometimes. Any leak in any of the hoses and things go kaput. Check to make sure no leaks in the diaphram also.
As for the person with heat in the rear only, you need to check to see if the door is closing and opening. Not sure if yours is also motor control. If motor control replace the motor that operates the door. Is probably stuck in the hot position. But before you spend money ensure there isn't debris keeping the door from operating.
