Blower on Defrost only and Cruise on Fritz

2003 Ruby. Pulled the fuse panel off to the side to change my battery yesterday.

All of a sudden today no matter what I set my ac/heater to, it's only blowing out the defrost vents.

Also, my cruise control won't set a speed and stay on it.

Could I have damaged anything while changing the battery? Blew a specific fuse?

It's been raining non-stop here in the NYC area and my vehicle's constantly outside so I don't know if it could've been water damaged or over humidified?

Any help appreciated!

Sounds like you have a vacuum line that isn't connected somewhere.

Yep, that was it. One hose popped out of the driver's side of the intake manifold.

I tested the ac/heater blower and it works fine. Will have to drive it out on the road tomorrow and test the cruise control.

I absolutely freakin love JeepForum. I was driving down the road today and it was a bit warm, so I wanted the vents to blow on my upper body. Trouble was, it was only blowing out the defrost vent no matter what setting I selected. Came home and checked my Chilton manual, which was useless in this case. So off to JeepForum I head. One quick search, and I hit a bunch of threads regarding this same issue. Sure enough, my problem was the same as the the user above. Pushed the vacuum line back on and all is well. Thanks JeepForum!!!!!!!

You should, in no way, take any of this personally. It's just business. So to recap, I come in peace, I mean you no harm, and you all will die. Gallaxhar out.

Mine is pretty loose. I know the vacuum should hold it on while the engine is running, but I may secure it with a zip tie and then replace it with new when I can get one.
