Re: [DML] Re: No Air From Dash Vents

Thanks for your response Mike.  I've used a flashlight
to make sure the vent flaps are open.  I'm fairly
certain I rebuilt the switch correctly per the
instructions, and I have the hoses and wires on
correctly.  I've been told that actuators rarely go
bad, so maybe my mode switch is bad itself, vacuum
