Heater in dash makes clicking noise, stopped no heat

The clicking in dashboard stopped and then there was no more heat. Everything works but no heat. I bought a used car and the heater worked for about 45 miles with a clicking sound. Now the heater doesn't work what-so-ever. The clicking still remains though.

The clicking noise you are hearing is the temp door actuator. It is located in the center of the dash. If you look behind the radio from the Passenger side of the van you will see a white square box with a black or green connector in it. Remove the connector and then remove screws that hold the actuator in place. Install a new actuator and reconnect the wire connector. This should take care of your problem and your heater will be fixed. I hope this was helpful.

I have a 1999 dodge intrepid and it is making noise there also it started two days ago. The same day the car stalled, we are checking out the fuel pump because the fuse keeps blowing. Can the clicking noise and the fuse issue be connected what should we try next. The relay was replaced and the fuel pump makes noise.

Lights or fuse for my speed odemeter guage and heater/air conditioning system


These lights for the dash are controlled by a rheostat instrument control dimmer switch next to the main light switch for the headlights, it is either turned off (have seen this dozens of times) or it is defective. Below is a picture of the switch assembly I speak of. The thumb wheel next to the knob is the dimmer control.

Yeah there is a fuse under the dash board on the driver side. But if you take it out your heater and air conditioner want work. you can remove the dash panel on the passenger side and oil the blow motor and it will not make it noise.

Check the heater control valve, when u switch to heating mode, this valve is supposed to open, allowing hot engine coolant into the heater core under the dash, it is not opening the valve, the clicking is the sound from it attempting to open the valve.

02 galant heater not working


As me and my stepdad just discovered, the Galant came with an added feature to help the AC use less energy, by placing a heater valve within the dashboard. After pulling about 10-12 screws and half the dashboard apart, we simply opened the valve permanently. Many cars out there work that way all the time. Now after changing those lousy clamps into actual hose clamps by the firewall, my wife enjoys cool air in the summer and heat the whole winter. Hope this helps, there is a site that will actually show you a video of putting dash back together, as author did not film the disassembly.
