Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
The blend door failed and I replaced it. Upon checking to see if my work was sufficient I found that the actuator for the blend door was not operating properly. The shaft that connects to the blend door only wiggled the blend door slightly left and right no matter what I turned the temp control know to. I purchased a new actuator and it does the same thing. Could it be that the control on the dash is some how malfunctioning, the wiring bad, or both actuators bad? Or something in between.

What type of car is this? There should be a way to scan the climate control system for fault codes. When you mention that the door wiggles, it makes me wonder if the door movement is restricted in some way.

Hello: I have bad news for you, if you run the actuator without it connected to the door the actuator is ruined, it will have to be replaced. After replacement the system has to have the doors (actuators re-calibrated.) re-calibrated. This is done with a Tech 2, A GM special tool.

that clicking noise you hear is likely a relay in the fuse panel that needs to be replaced. the easiest way to find out which relay it is would be to put you finger on each relay as you actuate the device not working. once you locate the clicking relay replace it . to reset the computer just unhook the battery for about ten minutes. if you have an anti theft radio make sure you know the code for it and how to enter it before you unhook the battery.
