GO UNDER THE DASH AND REPLACE THE CABLE, THAT IS BENT. YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE OFF THE DASH PAD. ALSO CHECK THE FLAP TO SEE IF ANYTHING IS IN IT CAUSING THE CABLE TO BEND.

Does the know not turn, or is there just no difference between heat and cool or ?

The knob could be faulty, or the actuator that is connected to the vent flaps that direct the air could be faulty. They are inside the venting behind the dash console and are hard to get to. The knob is connected to either vacuum hoses or electrical wiring that then run to the actuator that moves the venting flaps, heater blower motor, and another that goes to the heater core.

The knob that controls the doors to the HVAC vents is stuck


TRY CAREFULLY DISCONECT THE CABLE AT THE BLEND DOOR AND 1. TRY WORKING THE KNOB,
IF WILL NOT MOVE YOU NEED A NEW CABLE.
.2 GENTLY TRY MOVING THE BLEND DOOR BY HAND. THIS SHOULD GIVE YOU THE DEFROST FOR NOW. IF IT WON'T MOVE YOU SHOULD TAKE IT TO A GOOD SHOP THERE ARE A LOT OF SMALL AND EASLY BROKEN PARTS IN THE HEATER BOX. A DAMAGED BEND DOOR ALLWAYS RUINS THE CABLE SO IT WOULD NEED TO BE REPLACE TOO.

The vent actuators are vacuum controlled on this model. Do you hear a hissing sound when you turn the control knob? If not, then you'll need to check the pipe or hose connections. Start with the vacuum reservoir bottle on the right hand wing just in front of the door. Ther'll be a hose from the inlet manifold to the bottle, make sure that's connected & air tight. The other pipe from the bottle goes to the heater controls. Has the radio been removed or any work done in that area? If all appears fine, remove the radio & make sure the large white, multi-hosed connector is fitted securely to the control switch & all the pipes are connected to it.
Good luck, let me know if you need any further help.
