Question about 2006 Pontiac Torrent

Clicking sound in the vents

I get a clicking sound in my vents no matter what setting I put the air control on. If I turn it completely off it stops, but otherwise it continues to click, and it does not happen constantly, however it happens more often when it's cold. Any solutions? The dealer I took it too when it was still in warranty checked it out at least 3 times with no solution.

Did he replace the Resistor in between the blower motor and the wirng ? That controls the blower speed. It may be going bad. It is located usually under the dash near the blower motor itself.

Problem with airflow selector switch


The clicking is caused from a blend door motor not working properly. This motor moves a door in the heater box to control airflow. There may be 2-3 motors in the heating/AC system and one of them is causing the problem and will have to be changed

It sounds like vacuum is not getting to the vent, heat and A/C controls. Find the vacuum can. It may be under the hood on one of the inner fenders. The "one-way" check valve is usually located in the line and close to the can, make sure it works properly. The valve could be the very thing that's causing the problem. Trace the lines back to the vacuum block at the intake manifold or fire-wall, and also back to where the line goes thru the fire-wall. Check the can for leaks or obvious holes. They used to be just a plain metal can, but it could be a plastic ball. Check the lines as you go, for breaks and rub-thru's. Move the controls thru all settings and listen for vent door movement. Worst case is a bad vacuum motor or air flow position selector switch, and/or a faulty Blend Door Actuator. If you have been driving around with the Temperature knob or control set at the same spot for months, move it from fully cold to fully hot several times and wait for the air temperature to change each time. This will help reset the blend door and vacuum control system. Hope this helps... Let me know what you find.

The clicking noise is the blend door actuator motor for the vents. When they click they are not working and the air will not flow where you want it.

Clicking sound from A/C


the clicking is caused by a part called a temperature control ac/heater blend door actuator motor, most likely the door it moves is sticking and the little gear drive inside the part is clicking.
