Heater only blowing out defrost vents

My 2005 jeep wrangler, the heat and a/c only blow out of the defrost vents no matter which setting it is set at. (I looked this problem up on-line before and they say that on some models there is a vaccuum hose problem where the cruise and heat vaccuum hoses connect, but I don't have cruise...)

Open your hood and find a "T" connector right near the battery. Follow the line down below the battery (you will have to get under the Jeep). You will see that the line plugs into a 3 to 4 inch section of 3/16" tubing that is plugged onto a black in color, plastic box. Use a razor knife and trim off about 1/2" of this 3/16" tubing as it commonly cracks where it fits on the nipple of the black plastic box. The vacuum cannot build pressure properly with these cracks in this tubing, and therefore cause the selector door to malfunction when operating heat and a/c. It is a quick and easy five minute fix.

The vent selector,(Defrost, Dash,Floor and Dash/floor), works off vacuum. Debri could be keeping from xchanging or vacuum leak.

When I turn my vent selector to defrost on the far right (air con off)the air conditioning comes on. The dash vents will blow ambient air, but defrost setting blows air con. Any ideas?


It's normal for the A/C compressor to come on with the defroster to dehumidify the air so the windsheild won't fog up under humid conditions. You can still control the air temp. out the vents with the temp. select switch.

2005 Wrangler X a/c only blows from defroster


Check under your hood for a loose or leaking vac line , The A/C system on your jeep uses manifold vac to move the air mix doors and with no vac the air mix door will move into the defrost position. Find your vac leak and that will fix your problem.

Defroster blowing snow inside car


Not really a solution but, check that blend door in heater box is operating and that a/c drain hose is not plugged. (if there is ice in there, it may take a while to clear it out)

Check the control cable that operates the diverter door in the heater box at both ends, to make sure that it operates the door when you move the control lever.
