No air from floor vents or defroster vents, only front vents.

I get good heat and air conditioning from my front vents, but when I select floor or defrost vents, the air still only blows from front vents. What's the problem and how do I fix it?

Is this a good question?

You will need to check the vent actuator to see if its functioning. The actuator is a controller that opens and closes the flapper that direct the airflow from the fan . This is under the dash on the passenger side . There are two types of actuators , electric or vacuum . If its electric you may simply have a blown fuse or it could be a bad actuator, if its vacuum you would need to look for leaks in the system. which could be in the lines to the actuator or the actuator itself . Hope this helps
