Why won't the dash vents work on my 1995 Chevrolet Camaro but floor vents and defrost vent work fine?

If the floor and defrost vents are both operating and you can't change air flow to any other vents, the dash control unit does not have a vacuum source. This vacuum comes into the cabin from under the hood. Look for a black plastic line coming through the firewall near the blower motor on the passenger side. This line should attach to a vacuum canister. The canister is generally round black plastic. What usually happens is the vacuum hose gets knocked off or the plastic line may break.

Why won't cars let you select the Face vents and defrost vents at the same time?

The Heating/ ventilation systems in cars are large structures throughout the dash board, that have many channels of which air can flow through. When you use your face vents, the air is blowing from the upper vent channels. If you use the windshield defroster, the air comes from the very same upper channels, the channels just switch. They have a divider that blocks airflow one way or another. Very much like train tracks, when you change the settings with the switches, the airflow changes because the divider has moved. Therefore you cannot use both at once. The only reason why you can use the foot vents, and face vents at the same time, is because they have a divider that splits the channel that they share, you can use face vents (full force), foot vents (full force) or both split (half force). The Defroster is made to work fast, so if you use the face, and defroster vents at the same time, the defroster would be half as effective. This is why you cant use them both at the same time.
