2005'Towncar. 40k miles. Started making an odd sound on acceleration; hard to describe but sounds like it is coming from passenger dash side. Maybe an air noise?? No sound on very soft acceleration


Turn off heater/air conditioner and accelerate briskly. If noise does not occur problem is probably a regulator in the heater/air conditioning system located under the dash.

The heater isnt working, I heard a clicking sound coming from behind the dash board and now it only blows cold air...


The noise you are hearing is the blend door motor. It is a DC motor that moves a door in the heater box that controls the temperature of the air coming out of the box. There are two typical possiblities, one, the blend door motor is bad and two, the blend door is broken and the motor cannot move it.

A/C and/or heater only blows very hot air


when the a/c is running you need to check if the lines coming out of the evaporator are cold. if they are cold the blend door operation could be an issuse. if they aren't cold the a/c is not working and you have to start diagnosing that.

Heater works great but a/c wont blow.


If I understand your problem, your heat works, but no A/C. It sounds like the blend door motor is not moving the door to the cool position. This could be caused by a bad blend door motor, or a bad interior temperature sensor. Because you said you heard a banging noise, it sounds like the blend door is stuck. The interior temp sensor would make no noise.

Heater control unit is working but the defrosters are not blowing out of dash i can get heat on the floor boards but not on dash please help i am at a lose


I believe this control uses vacuum to operate the different doors that direct air flow. Carefully while engine is running listen for hissing noises under dash while changing control to each position. If no changes in noises are heard then pinpoint leak . If there is no hiss then check under hood for a leak in the source line for control head.
