Your heater/ac register controls are vacuum actuated. I would start under the hood and locate the vacuum supply coming from the firewall (right side above or near the black plastic heater case) and trace it to a "T". There will be a vacuum line to the intake manifold (supply), and a vacuum line to a vacuum canister or reservoir. There is also a check valve that allows the reservoir to take over in case of a low vacuum signal (like passing or pulling a hill). I work on Crown Victoria Police Interceptors (same car, different badge, more fun). Usually it's a vacuum supply concern - a broken line.

You could try to see if the solenoids are actuating the control the flappers that change the direction of air flow there's a couple of them. They work off of the vacume system.
