On my dealer air...everything is cables. Cable going to the temperature control damper in the engine compartment as well as the damper controlling defrost/floor.

My control also only has 3 positions AC/Defrost/Heater. When you take to to "AC" it activates a switch that switches power to the dealer AC blower away from the Heater Blower.
Correct. Dealer air is cable operated and has separate blowers, while factory air is vacuum operated and uses a single blower.
