Caravan Blues

My wife is starting to complain. It is getting hot here in Texas and our "other" car is a 1995 Caravan. The ac only blows out of the defroster vents. The control buttons are not working. This just started recently. I know its not a Mercedes, but thought you guys might offer some advice on where to start looking.

Do you know how to tell if you're behind a caravan? Easy, you can't! The smoke trail is too thick!

Ba da bing!

I'm here all week folks.

I would suspect the control unit itself...if not operational, the proper vents do not open as intended.

But the cheap first tip is to check your fuses...
