    Front vents not blowing any air but rear and ceiling do.

    I have a 2017 ford explorer xlt with 43k miles. Recently lost front blower vents but the back and ceiling vents work on all settings. Any idea what would cause this? where should I begin? also recently lost front passenger side LED low beam and signature drl (but turning and highbeam work.)

    Replace headlight bulbs with LEDs on 2014 PIU?
