With the engine off, radio too, turn the key on and try the heater fan on all speeds. No fan, check the fuses. Fan is ok, check the coolant level, if thats fine, then check for a mouse nest in the duct work. Frankster016

I'm getting an intermittent loud flapping sound when the AC is turned on my 2009 Smart ForTwo


Question. Is the flapping at a very fast pace that would indicate the speed of a fan blade hitting something? If so, you may be on to something there such as a misplaced gasket or something has dropped/fallen into the blower box via a vent.

If it is not that speed then see the following..

Hope I can give you some direction. Speaking from a generic sense all ac/heaters these days have a door or doors in the blower box that control air flow from the main part of the box to different positions when you ask for vent, heater, mix, defrost etc..

Most these days are operated with a small electric servo/motor and unfortunately the mostly have plastic gears that wear and can "thump-thump" as the motor cycles trying to open or close the flapper door.

Try to change the air direction from Max AC to regular ac to heater, defroster, bi-level etc all with the AC switch in the on position if you have a separate on/off switch.

Listen to the sound and see if it comes and goes with a different location of the selector switch.

One last question. Does it happen at idle or driving down the road at any particular speed?

Lets start with that and see what happens. This is interesting.

Good luck!

Nothing coming from the vents when you turn on the a/c, heater, or defroster


You can jumper the fan motor to make sure it runs and if it does then look at the switch or resistor. You can also remove the resistor and omh acrossed it to make sure that it hasn't blown the fuse on risistor.

No A/C


Could be the main control panel. The ac clutch will engage if it gets power and the system is full of freon. The air should switch to the other vents even if the ac clutch does not engage.
You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams to troubleshoot the system.

Engage ac or defrost or vent I get a pitch squeal and nothing works.Compressor?


Yes, except for the vent setting. AC or defrost will engage the compressor, but vent should be just outside air.
Does the blower work ?

Front defogger blows out heater vent when set on DEF. All of the heater, a/c, settings work properly. One day, I turned on the DEF and the warm air blows out of the heater vents, not the defroster area. I...


Sounds like the flap valve in your vent system that allows air to go to the defrosters is either jammed or broken. Unfortunately you will have to take the vent system apart to look.
