Noise on drivers side under steering wheel when heater and air conditioner is on
Hi Rebecca, I'm glad to help!
Rebecca, I don't know what kind of vehicle you have because it doesn't say, so I'm shooting from the dark. I'll give it a shot here goes. If this noise in fact only happens with the air or heat is being used and its on the drivers side by the steering column then I only say this because the blower motor is on the passenger side of the vehicle. I'm thinking, with me not know exactly what the noise sounds like. Here's my guess, you could have an electric motor thats moves the A/C Doors. The gears could be stripped OR the door the motor moves could be broken. If you put your head under the dash and then turn the key on see if you can pin-point where the noise is coming from. If you find it and it is the motor on the side of the box, then unplug it and see if the noise goes away. If it does the take the motor off and see if the peg on the door will move, you should hear the door hitting the rest in both directions, if you hear that then the door is good and you only need to replace the motor. Not sure if this is it but its worth a try. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Rebecca!

you need to change drivers side temp door actuator then disconnect battery for 5 seconds and reconnect after changing the part, turn key on for 60 seconds with touching heater control to allow actuator to program and then it will work.

the a/c system may be low on a charge. have a a/c shop ck it. if its low, have them ck for a leak. if unable to locate a leak, they may need to rechagre it, and add a UV dye and you may have to bring it back several weeks later.

SOURCE: a/c blows hot air on drivers sde
The actuator door on the driver's side is out of position and needs to be reset. Remove the negative battery cable for 1/2 hour to reset the computer. Start the HVAC system and you should be able to hear the door adjusting itself and cold should come out of the driver's side vent.
