My wife has a 2011 compass i noticed the other day that when you turn the ac / heat selector to blow air from the floor and dash vents, nothing comes out of the vents on the dash. the only way air comes out to the dash vents is when you select that setting. if you set it to floor some air comes out to the vents that would be used to defrost the windshield. I hope this makes sense.

When set to the floor there is always some air going to clear the windshield on mine and every car/truck I have. As for other settings the manufactor may change the options. Did you check the owners manual? They tell you in there where each setting directs the air on yours and in most cases if in between settings its not going to change. I have clicks at each dail position so I know its fulling in that position.

I tried mine today and air came out the floor and the dash vents had air also. The dash vents didn't seem to have much pressure though.

Changing the air cabin filter will help for sure. If the filter hasnt been change for a while for sure is dirty and makes air difficult going thorough it.

The front vents get the maximum flow when the dial is on the upper vent knotched position and slightly less on the bi-level setting where some is directed to your feet. I use the Bi-level most of the time. by knotched I mean there is click at that point and any place in between is all wrong the doors are not in the correct positon although the air blowing has to go somewhere but not necessarily where its wanted or expected.

Your not alone on issue, and no TSB.

Its not cabin air filter. It is a issue in the jeeps computer. Mines had parts of dash taken out for the last 2 weeks. I will be sending a letter to Chrysler if mine is not fixed by end of work day tomorrow.:confused: I have a video of mine as soon as I can upload it I will. Also when i went to video it, the HVAC system lost all power. finally came on when i changed the speed control.

Things the dealer has done to mine.

1. All day on phone with tech from star. No change and a book in things they have tested.
2. Re programed the jeep.
3. Replaced Head unit from one on lot. NO change.
4. Taking dash back out, for what I don't know
