    I have a '96 Eddie Bauer Explorer w/auto climate control. I have heat and fan but there is a knocking noise coming from the plastic heater box behind the glove box. While checking for the source of the noise, I disconnected a wire that was attached to a small electrical component that sits on top of the heater box. The noise stopped. I still have heat but the automatic controls don't regulate the amount of heat I get. Does anyone know what the small electrical component is and will replacing it correct the noise and heat issue?

That component is an electric motor that controls the blend door. The motor has a male square shaped drive that fits into the female drive in the blend door. It is common for the blend door to crack. The motor can be easily replaced however if the blend door is broken you will have to remove the heater box. This means that the entire dash must be removed for access. I think mitchell book time on this job is around 7 hours.

1999 ford expedition eddie bauer 5.7 will not turn over, later does, couple days later strands me agin

I would have a load test done on the battery as there may be an internal problem. There may be an intermittent fault in the starter ( dry joint in the armature, faulty solenoid ) so I would pull the starter and have it bench tested

E.E.C. relay causing power draw and killing my battery

My girlfriend has an eddie bauer as well. We had an issue where the blower motor for the heater comes on unexpectedly when the key is out and it's parked. And kills the battery ... in about 3 hours ... We pulled the 30A blower motor fuse under the hood ... I think it was called the ECC fuse Electronic Climate Control ... Go put that fuse back in ... sit in the car the blower for your heat may come on ... Maybe ... ours happened onlt 2x in 6 months, then it has been fine ... there are two possible solutions replace the ECC motor control (under the hood and fairly difficult to get to), or it could be the less likely Dash heat contol panel ... both are costly
