Check to see if the vacuum pump under the hood runs or not disconnect the line and see if it pumps. Its on the passenger side behind the battery.

Should be just the small diameter rubber hoses for the vacuum pump like afore mentioned. They have a tendency to dry rot and crack. Easy fix hopefully

When I bought my rig it was doing the same thing, so the dealership had to got under the dash to fix it. I believe a vacuum line had come off. You can get to most of the air stuff by popping out you glove box. I think the dealer pulled my radio also cuz in the process of them fixing my vent problem they removed my radio and forgot to hook the antennae lead back up.

Tap on the vacumn pump located behind the passenger side battery. My vents did the same thing ,quit working. A light tap on it got it going again. Have someone sit in the truck and turn the ignition on and off, you can hear the pump trying to cycle.
