Check and make sure that the control knob operates the "door" that changes the airflow output from one place to another.

i had a similar problem, that the knob wouldnt select anything except the vents, was a simple vacuum line.
I am the anti chrome.

X2 on the vaccum line. I have the opposite issue. Wouldnt blow out any of the vents except the top defrosters and my cruise control wouldnt engauge. Ended up being a single vaccum line had popped off.
