SOURCE: Effects of broken door lock actuator

the door should still unlock with the need to remove the door trim panel and check the metal rod that goes from the lock cylinder to the latch they have plastic connectors on each end that break or come loose. if it is connected properly when you turn the key the rod will push the lever on the latch and unlock the door. they sometimes get knocked off when someone tries to break in the car with a slim jim

2006 solstice coded to replace camshaft actuator valves, cleared codes, 2 days later service engine light came on again

More than likely you need to replace the cam phaser itself it only comes on do to lack of oil pressure to the motor ( like not changing your oil regular or running the car extremely low on oil)

Heater and air condioning switch keeps making clicking noise

The noise is one of the actuators that moves the air flow doors into different positions. Common problem. When the noise happens, move the temp. control from cold to warm. If the noise goes away, it is the temp. actuator. Or, press the recirculation button to go from fresh air to recirc. If the noise goes away, it is the recirc. actuator. Or, change the mode from vent to heat. Could be the mode actuator. Usually the temp actuator acts up.

A/c recirculating light comes on when i first start up the 2004 gmc yukon xl will not go off until recirculating switch is pushed. Sometimes comes right back on and u have to reset it again

{: ) Just let it be as this behavior is part of normal operation. Observe for a while. Check again your mode settings, should not be in defrost or defog mode when recirc is requested. The recirc function is available only in face or bi-level mode.
If the recirculation switch is pressed into the ON position when the mode switch is in an unavailable mode position, then the recirculation switch LED will flash 3 times. If the HVAC control module detects a fault with the recirc door the HVAC control module will try to drive the actuator for a predetermined amount of time, to outside air, which is the defaulted position for the recirculation actuator.
Try settling on the face and bi-level mode. You can manually turn on or off the recirc function and observe some air change on the vents. When recirc is off (light off) outside air will also enter and it will mix with the cold air inside if your a/c is on.
The HVAC system also monitors the inside and outside temperature sensors and uses these inputs to control the opening or closing of the recirculation door. If the outside temp is colder, it may not allow recirc off, sometimes it may not even allow a/c function. You may also have a sticking door or failing actuator. If any of the approaches above doesn't come out well, you may proceed for a scan tool diagnostic test to be sure, if your HVAC system does have a trouble.

Clicking noise under dash near blend door. Removed fan and clicking still there. Is it possible the blend door is causing the clicking. It only starts when temp controls are moved from col to warm.

could be the blend door actuator(motor) when its clicking, disconnect it, if it stops then the motor is bad. If you want to.....if you mostly have it on recirc anyhow, just disconnect it when the door is open.

2003 Dodge Ram 4.7, AC barely blows except for floor vents that blow hard. Am told there are four vent actuators? Fuses all good in panel.

Could be a bad recirc door housing, or a bad mode door actuator. There are not four vent actuators. I do see alot of recirc door housings break, and cause the problem you describe.
