I think you are completely right. When you accelerate, you are opening the throttle up a little, or adding more fuel, either way, this causes a drop in pressure, which will cause the spring to pull the vent back into defroster mode. My friend has been dealing with this for years, and we still are not really sure what to do about it. What may be the cause, though, is if one of the vacuum hoses leak, it causes the lower pressure to lower still further, so check to make sure none leak.

AC/Heater blower fan stops blowing air into the cabin when I accelerate.


Usually a vac leak. I would check for a leak in the HVAC control system and the line thru the firewall to the engine.

check your blower hoses to see if one or more have come loose or got redirected or the selector switch isn't functioning properly (is it blowing better on defrost as opposed to floor vents, or forward vents, etc.)
Good luck

2003 Grand Marquis LS Ultimate ac switches from blowing in dash vents to defroster vents on its own. What controls the valve and where is it located?


Does it only change when going uphill, or under heavy acceleration? Or is it just when ever it feels like it? Generally, it's vacuum controlled and on a Ford, loss of vacuum when accelerating or pulling a grade under heavy loads can be normal, causing the air to come out of the defrost. To answer your question, the blower door is located in the dash, generally behind the radio area.

Good luck!

I have a 2003 cherokee laredo that keeps blowing air out of the defroster vents. Occasionally it goes back to the fron vents, but soon switches back to defrosters. The air is cold, so no problem with that.


If you have a manual control , you may a a vaccum leak at the firewall under the hood. when you give it gas and the vents go from the floor to defrost . listen for hissing, and cracked / broken vaccum lines

2001 Jeep Cherokee a/c blows defroster only, no cruise control


There is a vacuum leak under the hood somewhere. Check the vacuum at the speed control servo. If there is no vacuum on the line with the engine running, follow the line to find the leak. The vacuum reservoir is mounted under the battery tray. I would look in that area after confirming no vacuum at the servo.

A/C unit fan is nolonger blowing air.


Either a bad blower motor or blower motor resistor. If the air is coming from the defroster only, check for a disconnected or broken vacuum line under the hood by the passenger firewall.
