    I just got the a/c on our '90 Sub repaired (compressor and all) and I noticed that when the a/c switch is in the "Normal" position, that the air flow still comes out as if the switch were on "Bi-level"....about 50/50.

    Where do I need to start, or what do I need to do to get all/most of the air to come out of the dash vents when the switch is on "normal" ?

    Thanks

    BTW - Defrost works fine as does the "max"...

    If I could see i pic of the vent controller it would help, just cant picture its setup, I know its the two sliding levers though

    Yes, its the slide levers with the pattern:

    max - normal - bi level - vent - heat - defrost ...in that order, and the "normal" position is acting like the "bi level".

    Your bi-level setting I am guessing isnt for the air, just cool or heat and your normal and max setting is specifically for ac, so this is by design, max is full ac.

    According to the controller, the a/c incorporates the "max-normal-bi level", then "Vent-heat" together, the "defrost" separate. So, the bi-level is part of the a/c control.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks for the help!

    My 85 chev truck only had normal and max for he ac so i am guessing one of the blend doors is not moving correctly
