heat/air position switch wont change! Help

Ok i just noticed it tonight but my switch is stuck on defrosed but i can turn the switch but will not change positions. Is there a fuse that might be burnt out and not letting it change? Let me know what you think.

I don't know about in the 02s, but the 99s run off a vacuum pump. I would start by checking your fuses.

You may very well have a vacuum leak somewhere, If you have the auto lock hubs they are usually where the leak is

Bet you $5 to a bottle of urine you have a vaccum leak in the hoses to your hubs. When this happens all you get is defrost...that's the signal!
