Richard this is a vacuum leak.The default position for no vacuum is defrost.
On this vehicle the vacuum reservoir is located behind the battery.Here is a pic of it.
You have to remove the battery and battery tray to remove it. There will be a vacuum line coming from the intake manifold to it and one going from it to the inside of the truck. Maybe one of the lines are broken and have come un-done.
I replaced the vacuum line from the reservoir & the blue check valve, Ford part. I took a vacuum reading from the main line coming from the intake manifold (18 lbs.) The problem is still there. If I take the a/c controller out of dash, can I see the vacuum line running to it? How much of the dash do I have to take apart to get the temp. controller out? Do you have any pictures of the vacuum line coming inside the truck & where does it go? Do you have written procederes how the temp. controller comes out of the dash?
Thank You! Richard
