Question about 2008 Ford Taurus X
No other temperature setting results in the noise, only the max cold setting. The clicking isn't immediate. For example, if you turn it to max hot, then back to max cold, it takes a few second before the clicking starts. It sounds like it is coming from somewhere in the middle/left of the dash board. Any ideas on what it could be?

I have the same problem on my 2000 Taurus. I've been told by a Ford service technician that it is probably an intermittent problem where the blend door gets stuck in the 'heat' position. I have electronic A/C controls, and there is a diagnostic procedure I can do where it runs the blend door through its full range of motion, and which seems to get it unstuck. If the problem happens again (and as I said, mine is intermittent), you might try doing the same thing by turning the dial all the way from hot to cold and back again a few times, to see if it gets unstuck. Or you could try to repair/replace the blend door.

Check radiator fluid level. The heater core sets higher than the engine. If fluid gets low, air bubbles will go to the highest point. The heater core. Check temperature guage. Is engine warming up to normal range? If not change the thermostat. Also check radiator cooling fans with engine warm.
On my car if I set the heater control on anything other than "vent" both cooling fans come on and the engine will not warm up. (still haven't figured that one out) I just run the heater in "vent"
If heater warms up when engine is held at high idle(2000rpms) then cools down at idle, you most likely have air traped in the system.

Sounds like your temperature actuator is not moving or your temp door is broken. On max a-c ,coolant is shut off to your heater core allowing only cold air in.

The clicking noise is most likly the starter solinoid cycling in and out. This is due to low battery voltage. charge the battery, then have the battery and charging system tested. Some auto supply stores will do this for free for you in the hopes of selling parts
