This is a malfunction with the climate control switch. The switch is electronic and will need to be replaced.

    I should have been a little more clear. The ventilation control switch that allows you to switch from defrost to head to feet. This is the electronic switch that I was referring to. Check the connection,wireing, and fuse for the climate control first. If these are good, then the switch will need to be replaced.

There isn't any air flow coming out of the front vents when the air conditioning or heater is on. Only air coming from the defroster and floor vents.


There is a mode selector in the plenum that controls where the air comes out. That flap inside is either broken, loose or has a bad control.

05 malibu heater vents blowing incorrectly


The are two controls on the heater. One is the blend door and that controls hot and cool, the other is the mode selector door and that changes the place air comes from. You should be able to see those and the area that controls the air in the plenum. The plenum is behind the glove box. Open the glove box all the way and see if the controls are visible. Activate the mode control to see if the lever moves on the plenum, the problem could be anything from a broken lever, bad control, loose control, or something that fell down the defrost vents.

On a 1996 model you probably have vac actuators that control air flow. Look under the dash and you may be able to see the actuator that controls flow to the defrost and vents. There would be another one for temp control.

Air only comes out defrost in all settings


I just fixed mine. The lever that opens and closes a door that directs the air flow to the defroster was broken. To be more specific, the plastic lever the actuator attaches to was broken. The actuator and the vacuum system were operating properly. It is simple to see but hard to get to. Remove the glove box and look up and to the left for a silver vacuum controlled actuator. I was able to fabricate another lever and attach it to what was left of the OEM lever.

1998 Buick LeSabre Custom I will turn on the A/C and air will only blow out the defrost vents sometimes it will change over to the proper vents. At times I use to switch it over to heater and back to A/C...


Hi! It may not be a vaccum problem. I think that the hoses that goes thru the main vent is the problem. They may have fall thats why theres no air coming out of the main vents only on the defrosters. Check the hoses and connect them to the main vents and it will resolve this. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

Air blend doors do not work. Air blows from defroster vents


check or loss of vacuum to mode control switch in dash ac control. these are not blend doors, they are air flow control, a blend door controls the air temperature not where it comes out.
