Blend air door may be stuck. I removed a pencil from a heater box before. It had fallen from the dash, down through the defrost vents and jamed the door.

that clicking noise you hear is likely a relay in the fuse panel that needs to be replaced. the easiest way to find out which relay it is would be to put you finger on each relay as you actuate the device not working. once you locate the clicking relay replace it . to reset the computer just unhook the battery for about ten minutes. if you have an anti theft radio make sure you know the code for it and how to enter it before you unhook the battery.

Why 2005 pilot gets too much cabin heat even when turned off


There is blend door in vent channels under the dash of the vehicle. It blends warm and cool air in the vents depending on the temperature setting. The Blend Door is controlled by a motor called an actuator that gets its signals from the setting on the dash. When the actuator fails the blend door can't move. If it stops on hot you always get hot air.
3 possibilitys
1. Blend Door stuck.
2. Temperature control not sending signal to actuator.
3. Actuator motor gone bad.

Of the 3 possibilities the actuator motor is the most common and the easiest to fix. The part is $40-90. I don't know exactly where actuator is on the Pilot. My GMC you remove the plastic trim below the dash and its just to the left of the glove box near the 'hump'. Perhaps the part store can tell you or someone else will offer the exact location.

Once you remove the actuator you can plug it back in to the wire clip and move the temperature knob and see if it moves. When you get the new one plug it in and make sure it turns before bolting it in.

To clarify a bit. The heater is never technically turned off. The blend door determines how much it goes thru the vents.

NO HEAT STUCK ON AC HEAR CLICKING IN CENTER CONSOLE


Air Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat or no AC (dependes on where door sticks)

In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

Other causes of no heat in the cabin are engine thermostats that are stuck open (engine runs cold) or air bubbles in the cooling system.

2004 Toyota sienna blend door actuator intermittent problems


I know this post is old but for those of you experiencing this clicking noise it appears from my research so far that it is the actuator that moves the blend door. A couple of people even repaired the motor assembly because it appears to slip where the motor drive connects to the worm gear. If you search sienna ac actuator you can find the videos, I belive one guy was named Froggy. My passenger is stuck on cold and the driver side makes noise when moving to cold, the driver side also seems to hesitate going to warm. It's $120 for a replacement actuator. I'm really close to changing it, you just have to make sure the door and motor arm Match positions for it to work right. The dealer seems hesitant to replace it since they are worried it may be loose foam in the blender box. The box costs $3500 to replace though since its buried in the dash, and from what I've seen researching this the actuator is a possible issue in multiple models as well as Lexus vehicles and some other brands.

My 2000 winstar has duel heat, the rear works, but the front does not.


This is most likely caused by a failure of the heater blend door actuator, which you can fix at home in about three hours (if you have small hands). The front heater is actually working, but the blend door is stuck shut by the failed actuator and is preventing the heat from reaching the dashboard vents. To get at the blend door actuator, you have to take the radio out. Behind it and built into the duct work of the heater is the actuator module, which you can remove and replace fairly easily.

2003 mercury grand marquis LS heater does notr blow hot air, blower blows but cold air comes what is the problem


The blend door is stuck in cold position. That usually happens because the blend door actuator has failed.

You will need to test and replace the blend door actuator.

To replace the actuator you will need to take apart the dash and remove completely the instrument panel,d isconnect the connector, remove the four screws, remove the temperature blend door actuator and replace it.

The replacement is not a job for beginners, since you have to take apart the dash to access the actuator.

Regards.

Air vents will not work for the heating, but wil work for a/c. It has a clicking noice like vent will not open.


It sounds as if the temp blend door actuator is broken. This is not uncommen, the gears in the actuator become worn and start slipping. The only fix is to replace the actuator. This can vary in price depending on the labor time and cost of part.

P0411 is what is says is my problem with my 1997 Ford Taurus When my heater is on it makes a clicking noise. What could is the most likely problem and how can i fix it?


i belive that the dtc that you have is not related to the clicking noise at all. apparently p0411 is concerning the secondary air injection. the clicking noise however would be a stuck or broken blend door or blend door motor. usualy the hvac system utilizes 3/4 of these blend door motors. to further diagnose this start your heater with the heat on full and fans at the normal face vents and move the vent selector from that inital position to the last position and if the clicking quits at any point then it would be that blend door motor. if that doesnt work then try to slowly move the heat selector from full heat to full cold, same deal. and if still at that point its making noise see if it goes away by selecting recirculate to fresh air....
