The vacuum line to the AC controls has either come loose under the dash or under the hood.Look for the black vacuum line under the dash and make sure it is connected were it comes in the car thru the firewall. if it is attached than unplug it and see if you have vacuum on th eline if not you need to look under the hood for were you are losing the vacuum.
