You have the exact same problem i did. there's vacuum tubes behind the control panel (if i remember correctly the tube i had was black) and it will most likely be hiding down in your mess of wires as mine was, and you'll either need to photograph the tube and the vacuum connection hub and i'll walk you through what to do with it, or you can buy the haynes jeep manual for your specific year and style and it will be under cooling, heating and air conditioning systems (3-13) if you get the 1993 thru 2004 manual.

Heater control wont switch to the defrost


In your HVAC unit there are at least two 'doors' that are moved by servos. (1) regulates your temperature - the blend door, which adjusts/blends the amount of air coming through your heater core and your air conditioning evaporator. (2) regulates where the air goes - the mode door (there may be multiples of this depending on your model, etc), that selects floor, dash vents, and defroster vents. One of your servos may be bad, or your mode door may be jammed.

1998 chevy blazer heater problems. wont switch from defrost to floor. stuck on vents right now. how do I fix this problem.


Most likely either the vent switching mechanism is dirty and won't switch the flaps -or- most likely the vacuum that is used to turn the vent flaps is either leaking and not pulling enough vacuum. You will have to get underneath the dash near the center, to check and see if you can manually move the vent flaps. If so, then most likely it is a vacuum leak in a vacuum line to the flap mechanism.

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.

My ac and heater are stuck in defrost and i cant figure out why i turn the dial to vents and heat but it stays in defrost


It all depends on whether your truck is equipped with Automatic Climate Control or Manual HVAC. You could have a broken control head assembly a broken mode door cable, a failed electronic mode door actuator, a broken mode door, or a loose or broken wire or connector.

To put it simply, your mode doors are not swithching modes - the reason for this can vary depending on which system you have.

Switch on dashboard does not change air direction to flow & vents


Defrost is the default mode so if the system fais, you alays have defrost. The mode doors are controlled by vacuum motors. I would suspect a vacuum leak in the engine compartment on the hose going from the engine through the firewall and into the heater controls. Some systems have a vacuum storage canister that can also leak. The canister stores vacuum when vacuum drops going up a hill.
Or, you have a bad heater control head that is not passing vacuum to the vacuum motors on the mode doors.

Here's a diagram of the system for reference.
