it is inside the HVAC unit behind the dash, but you prob dont have a problem with the door itself it is usually the blend door actuator that goes bad 99% of the times. the bad thing is that you will more than likely have to remove the dashboard to replace it, the book gives 14 hrs to remove and replace the dash if i remember correctly. there is a shortcut but if you were doing it yourself i would not advise that you use it too many things can go wrong .....
replacing a blend door actuator is a tedious job. You have to remove the steering column taking xtra careful for the wirings. Complete removal of the dashboard, remove the instr. cluster, radio , glove box.Remove the console box, discharge the freon ,disconnect the heater hoses, ac hoses. After removing the dash you can gain access of the ac/heater phlenum. Remove the blend door actutor.bolts and screws are sometimes in a concealed location so xtra patience is needed.
Yes this is correct. You have to remove the dash to replace the module. This is about an 8 hour job. Start from the passenger side removing all the small screws, glove box, and then proceed to the drivers side, drop the steering column should be 4 bolts, you do not have to take the complete dash right out. Once you have removed enough screws, and pulled the dash back, you will be able to get a small hand in there to do the job.
the ticking noise u are hearing is comming from the the AC/Heater air temperature control blend door actuator motorgear drive, all to common a problem, and this requires that remove the dash to replace the part, that is why the $900.00 estimate.
As long as all fuses are good, you need to check the light switch its self. Remove the light switch assembly from the dash. With a 12 volt circuit tester, check the wiring coming out of the switch. The dash lights will be powered along with the side marker lights.
Probe each wire that joins the switch, turning the switch on and off. If you don't have any loss of power here, it can be at the printed circuit board at the dash.
