If the clicking is only when you have moved the heater lever to the "hot" end and not when it is on the "cold" end, and it sounds like it is coming from under the middle of the dash, I would suggest that the problem is either the vent actuator or the vent connection to it. I hope for your sake the vent is not broken because that means not only does the central dash module have to come out to access the actuator, but you willl also have to remove the heater core to get to the vent section and replace it. I am in the process of doing that myself! If you tear it down to the actuator and remove it, get a flshlight and check the female end ( the vent ) and see if it has broken out on one or more sides. If it has you'll have to replace it because the actuator will just spin without moving the vent. Good luck!

Heat not working; my blower comes on but its not hot air, any ideas?


The temperature blend door is stuck on the A/C side ! Do you hear a clicking noise behind the dash ? Has an electrical controlled actuator that switches a door inside heater - A/C box from A/C to Heat . So the blower is blowing air over the A/C evaporator core all the time , not switching !

I hear a click click click then a pause then click click click again when I go to start my 2008 mercury sable the clicking starts when the accessories are activated right before the motor turns over it...


This noise is indeed coming from the dash and it is caused by a part called the air temperature control blend door actuator motor. The noise is a tiny electric gear drive that moves the door and controls air temperature jumping teeth due to a defective sticking blend door inside the air ducting. To replace these parts requires the dash be removed from the car, a 12-14 hour job.

Clicking noise from dash near a/c controls and radio area. possibly fan assembly fault


I doubt if you have a fan problem. More than likely you have a bad actutor motor. There are 2 small electric actuator motors under the dash. The temperture door actuator moves the air temperature door, which controls the temperature of the air coming from either the a/c or heater vents. The mode actuator (which is probably the one you hear clicking) controls the mode of operation, or more simply, which vents the air will be coming out of. When the internal gears of the mode actuator fail and start slipping, they make a loud repetative "clicking" sound, which is what you are hearing. Another symptom that may or may not accompany this situation is a longer than usual wait time for your mode selection to occur. So to sum up, a loud repetative clicking sound from the center of the dashboard possibly accompanied by a longer than usual wait time for your ac,heat or defrost mode to occur, usually indicates a failing mode door actuator.

prev.gif next.gif HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING Refer to Section 1 for discharging and charging of the air conditioning system. The heating system provides heating, ventilation and defrosting for the windshield and side windows. The heater core is a heat exchanger supplied with coolant from the engine cooling system. Temperature is controlled by the temperature valve which moves an air door that directs air flow through the heater core for more heat or bypasses the heater core for less heat. Vacuum actuators control the mode doors which direct air flow to the outlet ducts. The mode selector on the control panel directs engine vacuum to the actuators. The position of the mode doors determines whether air flows from the floor, panel, defrost or panel and defrost ducts (bi-level mode).

i had the same problem with mine only the noise was coming from the rear driver side where the rear ac motor is. the culprit was the motor that opens the baffle regulating the hot and cold air. the teeth on the the motor are plastic and a couple wore off and while trying to open the baffle would make the clicking sound. its a little hairy getting that motor out do to close quarters but a friend helped me and its fixed now. the motor cost me about 75 bucks. good luck hope this helps

Climate Control System Problem


The noise is most likely coming from a sticky temperature control blend door, ( they warp from heat, not an un-common issue) it is moved with a electric actuator. This is very expensive to fix, requires removal of the dash to repair, if the system works ok then if it was me I would "live with it".
