the hvac selector switch in the dash may be the problem.You need to remove the switch and look at the connector on the back of switch,see if there are any burnt wires at the connector or switch.It's all electronic and the switches have been known to burn out on this and other model.

An actuator cotrols the selector of your hvac. (Defrost, floor, mix, etc..) usualy pneuamaticaly. If it becomes stuck in one position, or has lost pneamatic pressure or vaccum, it will not change or select other setting of hvac controls.

How to fix no heat in 95 aurora olds. and a/c stays on with defrost on.

The A/C compressor is supposed to run in defrost mode. The only modes the compressor won't cycle is floor only and face only. This is to keep the seals in the system lubed during the winter.

If you don't have heat, check the coolant level. If the level is low you won't have heat.

Heat selector switch?

The switch might be bad, but if it's vacuum operated, there is a vacuum operated diaphram
under the dashboard that operates a door to close
the air from defrost to direct it to floor or mix.It's possible there might might be an air leak.

Turned air condition on, went to turn it off (button out) light is still on and color of light is green when on or off 2009 kia rio.

I may be able to help but, I need some more information. When you turned on your A/C what was the vent selector set at (Floor, Face, Defroster)?

Most newer cars with A/C systems have a built in setting when you set your vent selector to Defrost mode (blowing on the windshield) that automatically turns on the A/C unit. This is normal due to the fact that a fogged up windshield is from water vapor and the A/C does an awesome job of drying the air so it can more effectively and quickly remove that annoying water vapor from your windshield so you can see better while driving.

Try changing the vent selector to full face vent (the vents from the dashboard that you can adjust) and switch on/off the A/C and see if that solves your problem.
