It is located at the top of the gas tank. You are going to have to drop the tank in order to check it, so it is best to do this when there is not a lot of gas in the tank. Hope this helps you out.

Did you check the block box connected to the vent solenoid? There's a hose that comes off it that appears to run nowhere, that's the fresh air vent. If it's blocked it won't allow air into the system which will set the trouble code. If that's clear, the vent solenoid itself is bad and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: vapor canister 2003 cadillac cts

it will look something like this:
1_10_2012_5_20_27_pm.jpgand is usually located on the fender well on the engine side toward the front corner of the car (it may be inside the fender itself)
there would be 2-3 large vacuum hoses going to it which will help in finding it.

The air only blows out the defrost

this is caused by a loss of vacuum from the engine vacuum canister to the AC control switch, the canister is located under the hood, check the under hood vacuum diagram for exact location

Vent controls wont switch from defrost to any other selection replaced switch already I have a 2003 ford windstar, heat and cold air will only blow from the window defrost vents, any other selections...

You have a vacuum leak.Defrost is the default postion(no vacuum).
See if you can locate the small black vacuum line that goes inside the vehicle on the passenger side near the heater core. The trace it back,should see it going to a canister then to the intake manifold.Make sure it is not disconnected or broken somewhere.

Follow the gas line from the gas tank and you will find it since its located between the fuel tank and the Schrader valve. Looks like a metal canister.
