SOURCE: no air flow to dash vents and feet vents

99% of the time when they do that it is the control head. that is the thing you adjust all your temp settings on. have to purchase from dealer. have last eight digits of vin # when ordering.

SOURCE: Jeep AC blows cold air at defrost and feet but not through vents

There is a flap that directs the air. the flap is controlled by a vacuum actuator. This is located inside the venting. The actuator is connected to little vacuum hoses that attach to the temperature control switch. Either the flap is stuck, or the actuator has gone bad.

Vents won't blow hot or cold air. Comes from defrost and feet when you put fan on.

It's the vent actuator, it moves the baffle that changes the direction of the air flow.
Here is a video of a broken vacuum hose that creates the same problem.

It could also be a failed actuator.

Fan not blowing heat in vw beetle

Find the temp flap cable under the control head and follow it to the flap. Check to see if it is properly connected to the flap. Then adjust per the instructions below.




  1. Move the temperature control lever to the full cold position.
  2. With the control cable attached to the air mix door link, pull the cable housing out and push the inner cable in the opposite direction.
  3. Secure the cable in this position with the retaining clamp.
  4. Operate the temperature control lever and check freedom of movement at full stroke range.

Why is it when i drive my 1988 s10 pick up it blows warm air from the lower middle vent?it only does it when i drive it a long distance.

The vents for defrost, face and feet are all controled by vacuum. If there was no vacuum then defrost would be the default position. If it begins to blow at your feet and the lever was not set to it then I would check the connection at the back of the lever.
There is a dial where all the small vacuum hoses are that rotates when you move the lever. I have seen this dial come loose and allow vacuum to leak or there is a pin on it that will break. If its broke and caught in between settings that may be what causes the air to blow at your feet.

When I switch my vents to blow on feet or window the cam that opens and closes the vents makes a loud popping noise ?

The mechanism may be damaged. Most of the parts are plastic. look up under driver's side to view moving parts.

The air only blows out from the 2 outer vents in the dashboard, not the 2 inner vents. Are they on a separate system?

look at your air dial. if it is set to blow the windows or blow the feet+windows this is what it should be. The central vents work if the setting is "head" or feet+head. also look if they're not stopped, cause there might be a wheel which makes you able to limit or close them individually right in their middle

that's all

Electronic vent control not working in Volvo S40

I think here, by your description, that there might be something that has slipped inside the vent holes from outside. you can try to blow some compressed air through the vent holes at the bottom of the windscreen.
Otherwise you can try to look under the dash, activate the switch and see if you can locate from where the noise is coming and see if you can reach the mechanism that control the vent. Normally it must be moving free. Otherwise your local mechanic should be able to fix that ufor you.
