Question about 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan
Every time I start my van the heater blower under the dashboard makes a repetitive clicking noise. It goes: click, click, clunk...click, click, clunk...click, click, clunk. Then stops after 3 repetitions. The blower fan works fine otherwise. If I turn the heater off during a drive, it will do the same click, click, clunk noise. Of course, I'm appreciative that I have heat when I need it and the heater/blower appears to be working fine otherwise, but it's embarrassing to have people in my van have to listen to this. Any ideas on what's going on with this?
Take out the blower motor
if the bearing is ok
use a vacuum cleaner to suck out the debris in the piping

I had the same problem. It was the blower motor resistor. To verify this, open the glove compartment and push in on the sides to release it from the dash. The resistor is right in front bolted into the duct with two screws (9mm Hex head) and their are two electrical harnesses connected, one with 5 wires and the other with 2 wires. To bypass the resistor, take a piece of wire and connect the plain dark blue wire to the black wire. If the blower comes on, the resistor is bad. Make sure that you have the fan on high to tell if it runs. The resistor should be in stock at a dealership and cost approximately $30. The Blower Motor Assembly costs about $90. Removal of the part is simple, disconnect the two harnesses and unbolt the two screws.

Could be front CV axles making that noise. Check out the rubber cv boots going from the transmission to the center of the front wheels, If the boots are ripped or cracked, replace the cv axles on both sides.

I would start with getting your battery & altnator checked. remove them both and take them to the local parts house to be tested. The normally do this for free. The lack of power on the pedal is from a lack of voltage in the battery. If i was to guess i would say your Alt. is no longer charging the way it should.

Remove the cover plate on the passenger side of the heater box, 3-4 screws.
Unplug the motor assembly, remove 3-4 more screws that hold the motor in place and pull it down from its position. Get an aftermarket motor and installed it in the original housing with the original squirrel cage.
Installation is the reverse of removal.
