Definitely check all of ur fuses to make sure there good and use a multimeter as it is known that they look good by eye but are not . If all good then I would check the power module known as the brain box

How to access 2002 ford explorer control module


To locate the BCM remove the passenger side instrument panel insulator.Disconnect the negative battery cable. You should be able to see the BCM tucked up behind the dash panel. Will have three wire pack connectors. You have to reprogram the new one when installed. You can not get another, from a salvage yard and make it work. Either go to dealer, or someone who can reprogram it for you. God-Bless!!

Where is the body control module located on a 06 buck lacrosse


The BCM is located under the dash behind the instrument panel on the left (drivers) side of the vehicle. In the first picture below I have marked its location but keep in mind that this picture is a view from the front of the vehicle. You will need to remove the lower cover under the dash as well as the panel right under the steering wheel (see next picture). The final picture is how it looks after you remove the covers. Hope this helps...

How to install a blower moter and fan


Well, here's the instructions from the service manual. The labor guide says this can be done in 1.6 hours...I don't see how, unless the instructions are wrong about having to remove the instrument panel. My thoughts are that if you are only doing the blower motor, the blower assembly will come out without pulling the dash. You probably only have to do a partial disassembly and remove the glove box and the glove box lower support.

*************************************************************************************

BLOWER ASSEMBLY

Removal and Installation

1. Disconnect battery ground cable. Remove Instrument panel. (See Instrument Panel Removal) Disconnect resistor connector. remove blower assembly duct. Disconnect motor connector. Remove blower assembly

2. Remove blower assembly screws and blower motor assembly. Remove clip and fan from assembly. Separate motor case and remove blower motor. To install, reverse removal procedure.



INSTRUMENT PANEL

Removal

1. Disable air bag system. See AIRBAG RESTRAINT SYSTEM article in ACCESSORIES/SAFETY EQUIPMENT SECTION. Disconnect negative battery cable. Scribe mating marks on steering wheel and shaft for installation reference. Using Steering Wheel Remover (J-29752) remove steering wheel. Remove steering cowl.

2. Remove instrument panel grilles and plug, or driving pattern indicator panel (A/T Models). Disconnect electrical connections. Remove instrument panel hood, instrument cluster ezel and instrument cluster. Remove hood release handle. Remove knee protector.

3. Remove dash fuse/relay block and side trim. Remove engine control module box. Remove radio console and glove box lower reinforcement. Remove speaker covers and glove box. Remove heater control panel knobs and cover. Disconnect heater control cables, and remove heater control panel. Remove illumination control knob. Remove instrument panel.

Installation

1. Install instrument panel. Install and adjust heater control cables. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure. Ensure mating marks on steering wheel and shaft align. Apply grease to contact ring and tighten steering wheel nut to 26 ft.lbs. (35 N.m).

Clicking noise


I believe it is the Lighting Control Module taht is just above the brake pedal. It controls your headlights, tail lights, alarm system, air bag on steering wheel and a host of other things It is $499 new, $250 from tascafordparts.com and much less used on Ebay or at car-part.com (look for page with * for cheapest price.) There are many different modules so be sure to get yours by part number on your module.
It should only click when you activate something it controls, like headlamps. And then it should click just once.
put your head under driver side of dash & see if it's just above brake pedal where the clicking is coming from. Do you have something electrical not working due to the clicking?
