Air is only blowing out at windshield and floor,car has dual climate control(digital) on dash when i increase temp setting you can see diverter door arms moving,have taken glove box out so i can get a good look at whats going on,when i change modes from upper, bi-level, floor, defog nothing changes thats with a/c on and temp control turned down on 60 degrees, when i hit each mode button i can hear a click from inside what i'm assuming is a/c controller (black box behind glove box), have checked vacuum canister under right front fender everything seems to be ok out there, with car shut off i can pull on hose to canister and hear vacuum at the canister, my question is where does the a/c and heater get its vacuum source from, and is there a test you can do to check a/c controller before throwin' parts at it, i did find a piece of black tape on a/c controller box, and peeled it back had 5 prongs on it looked like somewhere you could plug somekind of tester into or touch prongs with voltmeter to test voltage, don't have a manual so kinda' at a loss on what to do, any ideas or info would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
