that clicking noise you hear is likely a relay in the fuse panel that needs to be replaced. the easiest way to find out which relay it is would be to put you finger on each relay as you actuate the device not working. once you locate the clicking relay replace it . to reset the computer just unhook the battery for about ten minutes. if you have an anti theft radio make sure you know the code for it and how to enter it before you unhook the battery.

SOURCE: Blend door not working.

The bleed door controls air temp not where it comes out, dash, floor, defroster, this is most likely a mode control switch problem, that switch is on the ac control head.

SOURCE: how to replace blend door actuator in a ford

I recently did mine, I hear you can do it without taking the entire dash apart but I had no luck with it myself. I have to get ready for work but, on mine it was located down and to the left of the radio. its a white box...are you hearing a clicking noise or something? I had to roll the entire dash back and it was still a major pain getting it out.

Heater not working


If a radiator and heater core flush doesnt fix the problem then it will be a blend door actuator located on the inside under the dash somewhere in between the middle to the passengers side. Test each one with a vacuum pump until you get heat; the one that causes heat to come out will be the bad actuator.

2006 Grand Prix Heater blows cold air only


The blend door is probably what is keeping the air from blowing across the heater core and picking up the heat. I hope your manual gives a description and procedure for it.

The blend door actuator and other heater case doors will be either vacuum operated with a few canister diaphragms situated around the heater case, or they may be operated with electric motors. If you pull off the lower sound insulator panels below the dash, you can see the bottom of the heater case, and then find the actuator for the blend door. If vacuum operated, check for vacuum. The vacuum for the heater/AC controls comes from a single line from the engine, through the firewall, and into the back of the control head or to a control module. Then, many vacuum lines branch out from this central point to the canisters- the heater/AC controls will direct vacuum to appropriate actuators, or servos.

The heater kicks on but only blows cold air


Air Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat or no AC (dependes on where door sticks)

In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

Other causes of no heat in the cabin are engine thermostats that are stuck open (engine runs cold) or air bubbles in the cooling system.

My 2005 2500 HD Duramax is not getting any heat inside cab. Engine is not running hot and coolant level is fine. Turned the heater controls up and down fast today and ot some heat for a while.


The temperature of the air coming out of the ducts is controlled by a door that moves between the heater core and the AC core, it is called the "blend" door for obvious reasons as it blends the hot and cold air streams to give the desired air temperature at the dash vents. The door is controlled by a small gear drive DC motor called the blend door actuator, what happens in most case is the actuator is damaged by a blend door that is warped from heat being hard to move or not moving at all which is the case with your truck. The blend door and its actuator should be replaced as one repair, the dash must be removed from the truck to access the air ducting that contains the blend door, you absolutely need a service manual to complete this job, it takes about 10 hours.
