      You folks were recommended to me by several explorer owners I know. I was told this is the place to go for answers when you need them. So here I am. I"m trying to figure out why I'm only getting air ( hot or cold) out of my defrost vents. I was told my problem is probably a heater blend door...or a heater blend door valve. I'm a bit of a shade tree mechanic, but i'd like to get as much info as I can before I spend to much time upside down under my dash. Anyone had this problem before?...or at least heard of it? Thanks yopu all again for any and all imput.

      Hey, I just fixed my 05 explorer with the same problem. If you still need help I have pics and what I did to fix it.

      Penske2584, I looked for the vent acuator motor, found it and thought the motor was bas, then I noticed a white wire harness with 2 wires attached, I felt behind the the vent seelector dial and found 2 wires attached to a wire harness. Both sets of wires same color, plugged the wires together and the vent selection dial works. Somehow it became unplugged, and am told this happens often.
