Could be that the vents are not in their respective positions,

check for air coming out of the top of the dash board or underneath the dash.

if they are, then the problem is the vacuum switch or loss of vacuum to control the vents..

another problem could be a clogged evaporator coil.

it needs a general cleaning..

tnx 4 using fixya..

2001 Expedition-- Location of the air duct actuator? A/C blows out front vents at first but then switches to blowing out of the defroster only (by itself :-( ) Sometimes it will correct itself and go back...

the motor that select the air to blow is the mode door actuator, some models are supply by air solenoid valve, if you want to see the location of mtor actuator, this is on the left side of evaporator case, a little bit upper of accelerator pedal

AC/heat doesn't come out front vents. Can hear

try a vaccum leak under the hood. Look and listen for any little sounds of air blowing out. Also the door switch may not be turning to vent it may be stuck on one side, like defrost!

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.

Ford F150 AC Problem

there is a vent opening linkage for the top vents if you had removed panel for sterio install this linkage might have come loose or the wiren to electric relay to open top vents came loose

also vent doors on front of a/c vents are turned to the closed position

also quite possible the passenger blower motor compartment door in side the blower mode has something blocking entrance

also your truck might be equiped with a blower motor filter i read that these need to be changed out during normal filter replacements the filters for ford i didnt know they started using filters for a/c on reading this since 2000
