    I have the same problem. I turned the temp. control to cold during this warm spell now when I try to turn the selector to hot I get that rythmic clicking/thumping noise.

    I have the exact same problem. Sounds like a bad design by our great American engineers or more likely financial decisions by overpaid automobile CEO's.

I ended up taking the vehicle to the dealer. The 'blend door' actuator had gone bad (stripped gear?). $66.00 for the part over $330 for labor. The console and part of the dash had to come out.

Sounds like the blend door is broken. it so that can be a job in a half. youll have to take some of the duct work apart and the heater box all while standing on your head under the dash.

Hearter temp control was blowing too hot, now only blows cold


Clicking sound you hear is the worn brushes in your blower motor. At this point the blower moter may or may not start with the switch. THe blower motor is faulty so I would change that first, then check for vacuum leaks or faulty selector cable for the heat blend door. It could have came off door side or heater control side.

Heater has climate control gets no heat passengerside


If you are getting heat on the driver's side but not on the passenger side, then you either have a defective or stuck passenger blend-air door actuator or a broken blend-air door.

TRY THIS FIRST: Sometimes the door and/or the catuator is just "stuck" from being in the cold position for so long during the hot months while you are using your air conditioner. I have gotten several of them working again by simply turning the temperature control to FULL COLD, wait about a minute, then turn it to FULL HOT again. You may have to repeat this a couple times to get it working correctly.

If this does not work, you will have to find out if the door is broken or if the actuator is bad and repair accordingly.

If the heat control system is operated by small vacuum hoses, check the hoses under the hood and under the dash at the heater control. The hoses control "doors" or large air-valves which direct heated air. Sometimes the hoses break or become disconnected, and sometimes the doors get stuck.

I have a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with automatic climate control. The drivers side blows cold air constantly. It has no heat.


sounds like the blend door motro may be bad, this motor is screwed to heater box, there are a few of these motors one for pass/side for hot/cold air then one to control position of air like defrost or vent or floor, then the driverside cold/hot air, i think this motor is on driverside part of heater box, to make sure locate each motor while moving all controls until you spot the one that doesnt move, then remove it and move door manualy to see if you get heat, then replace that motor, hope this helps,

The heater in my 2003 Dodge Ram 4x4 will not heat up or gets only luke warm & only on the passenger side....any suggestions?


Cold on drivers side and heat on passengers side, actuators working properly and blend doors are moving. Heatertreater is for piece of plastic on actuator motor. I moved blend door by hand after disconnecting actuator and works fine, both sides freezing when moved in opposite direction.

All i get from my heater is heat i cant turn the ac on, and when i turn off the heater it still blows hot air


Sounds like a stuck heater core valve. Find heater core valve. Under hood, find the two heater core hoses going into firewall. One of the hoses has a valve. Operate temperature control (full heat, then full cold) check that valve changes position. If not either replace valve or control system failure. Also, when temperature control in cold position, one hose should feel hot and the other cold. Temp fix: disable valve to close no heat or on heat.

No heat, when I turn on heater- all cold air flows out


sounds like you have a stuck blend door in the HVAC system. If its not controled by vacuum the servo motor is bad or the vacuum line is bad. This door moves back and forth to go from vent to floor to defrost. and you have one to go from cold side to hot side. Hope this helps you
