I am assuming the noise happens with the key switch on or the engine running.
It could be a relay or one of the blend doors for the HVAC. You'll have to get behind the glovebox to find the source.

Knocking in the glove box


You most likely have a bad HVAC blend door actuator. When they fail, the gears over run themselves and give you that kind of noise. What you can do is remove the glove box liner and see if you can get your hand onto the actuator, and you should be able to feel the clicking through the body if that is where it's coming from.

The 2003 impala will not start / you turn the key and nothing happens. the door locks do not work / the heater does not work/ and there is a clicking noise in behind the glove box. the battery is brand...


no start and door locks are consistent with security system activation. Is your security light blinking? Are you using the factory key with the resistor on the blade? Do you have another factory key you can try?
Not sure why the blower would be affected. Does the radio work? If not, check the radio fuse inside the car, as I think it runs the blower controller. Also check the HVAC fuse under the hood--#29--this one affects the security light.
I think the body control module is behind the glove box, but not sure why it would be clicking in these circumstances.
Let me know what you find out and if you have questions along the way.

Clicking noise under the glovebox


It may be a relay clicking. You can test the relay with an ohmmeter or multi-tester. Have you noticed any components not working?

Vent Control Noise Behind Glove Box


The noise is coming from the blend door motors.
All of the climate control doors (vents, defroster, temperature, recirculation etc) are controlled by electronic motors. As the motors age they tend to make a buzzing noise when they move.

There is a software upgrade that is available to minimize the noise, but it will always make the noise to some degree.

Hope this helps.

A/c fan not working


A/C fuses are 9 and 20 located in the glove box. If the auxilary fan is not coming on that will affect ac as well the fuses for that are 7, 22 (in glove box) and fuse 76 which is behind glove box. Does the compressor come on at all? Does the ac switch light come on?

Clicking noise behind the glove box


The little box is called the blend door actuator. It is an inexpensive fix, and you should be able to do it at home. There are a lot of online step by step guides to fix it! Good luck, i hope it helps, i am having the same issue!
