I was having a similar problem with the vents not redirecting air when selected. I went onto the auto zone wed site and found very helpful schmeatic diagrams for electrical and vacume systems. That lead me to investigate a possible vacume leak. There was a vacume hose broken tucked away by the battery. I repaired the hose with thick wall heat tape and now the vents move normally. The vacume starts on the P/S top of engine runs by the battery into the fore wall. Once in the P/S foot well you will see a purple hose that you can quickly check the vacume pressure. It should be a noticable vacume. If not work your way back to the engine. If you do have a good vacume there then I would suggest going to a auto wreckers and picking up a new heater control module for around $90.00 in stead of the $240.00 fro the dealer. All you need is a phillips screw driver to replace it.

Why is air coming from all three areas (vents/floor/defrost) regardless of setting?


There is actually two blend door actuator that control the opening and closing of your vents. Ine is located under the drivers side dash board. The is on the passengers side. Both are electric and I didnt have the money to replace them so i removed them and turned it with a pliers to allow heat to come out of bothe sides of the vent. Then come summer flip the little bar back the other way to A/C
Hope this helps

Problem with air not coming out of vents.


Check for a vacum leak from the engine to the a/c.The color of the hose is black. Also check if the heater control valve hose is unplugged. If you have vacuum the it sounds like the door for the vent/floor/defrost is broken.
