SOURCE: There is no air flow

You need part GM Part number 89018675 or ACDelco 15-73596. The Mode Selector Actuator. What happens is the part is a CHEAP part POORLY designed and when it goes to turn the flaps inside the HVAC unit its the plastic gear slips instead of turning the flap!!!

Just to forward you you might want a deal to install this art for you unless your good at fixing your own vehicle, because you need SMALL sockets and a lot of patience to get this part in!!!

The part is ALMOST directly above the steering shaft for your steering wheel, so theres a lot you got to remove before you will even see them!!!

I only recommend you to have a dealer put this part in for you, unless you have your own service manual!!

Because there is 5 of these darn things and if you pick the wrong one you will have to do it all over again!!!

3 on the Drivers side and 2 on the Passengers side!!

But replacing this part SHOULD solve all your problems!! AS it did for me and i was having the same issues as you have described!!

SOURCE: Vent control

You have a vacuum leak.Defrost is the default postion(no vacuum).
See if you can locate the small black vacuum line that goes inside the vehicle on the passenger side near the heater core. The trace it back,should see it going to a canister then to the intake manifold.Make sure it is not disconnected or broken somewhere.

SOURCE: PROBLEM WHEN SELECTING THE DIRECTION FOR THE AIR

Sounds like you have a supply vacuum problem. When you lose supply vacuum to the control head it defaults to defrost.

SOURCE: A/C only blows through defrost vents

It sounds like the blend door actuator which diverts air from defrost to vent to the floor.
The bad news is it's a bear to get at. It's located behind the glove box.

My Air Cond. cold Air blows out the feet vents, but not the dash vents...WHY??


You most likely have a vacuum leak not allowing the vacuum operated vent/duct inside your instrument panel to operate. Check all of your rubber vacuum hoses in the engine compartment for leaks, cracks or breaks .

Air vent heater


Check the vacuum can on the ac box. It may just be a broken vacuum line or the can can be bad. There is a baffle in there that has to move from AC to heat. Sound likes there no vac getting to the baffle vacuum can. Could also be the switch in the dash board controller. Depends on what type of car it is.

A/C will only blow through defrost vents


Common question on this site. On late model cars, the vents are controlled by blend door motors. Small electric motors open and close doors to direct air flow.
Chances are you have a blend door that is stuck or a failed motor.
The default position is the defrost to make sure the windshield is always clear.
Someone will need to look behind the dash to see if all of the doors will move on demand.

2006 chrysler pacifica air blinder not work only the vent for heating are blowing air i can't get it to switch to defrost or floor vent Could this have something to do with the blower relay switch...


the blower relay switch controls the blower motor,this sounds more like an air blend switch on the heater control head on the dash,not making the switch over in that switch.it could be the air blend door motor on the heater duct under the dash on the passenger side.this can be checked with a scan tool that has the capability to communicate with the bcm computer on this car.

Air only blows from the dash, no mater where you put the control. It will not defrost or put air on the floor


This can only be 2 things. 1. Your selector switch for the vent controls is defective. 2. A vacuum hose that powers the vent is undone under the hood or dash. There is a 3 but could happen. Your vent door on the floor board is stuck. Check all 3 and let me know if I can help you more and thanks for using FixYa.

Dash vents will not blow air


It may be the mode actuator. Have you heard any clicking or other strange noise ? Under the drivers rear seat, in a plastic box is a fuse panel. Remove the two retainers, and the cover. Remove the HVAC or A/C fuse for a minute or two. Reinstall the fuse and this will make the A/C system relearn. Whwn you put the fuses back do not touch the A/C controls. Start the truck and leave it run for two or three minutes. Then try to change the vent from floor to vent and defrost. If this does not work you will need a mode motor. Good Luck
