Sounds like what happened to our 2004 Vibe. There is a servo that opens and closes a door in the heating system. It's a two wire connection and presumably the only way the computer knows when the valve is open or closed is to sense high (stall) current in the servo motor. This is a poor design because it stresses a plastic secondary gear in the servo and can cause a couple teeth to break off. Now the gears skip (making the clicking sound) and the motor never stalls so computer never shuts it off and the clicking continues. It's an expensive part (of course) but I fixed mine by reversing the secondary gear so that the bad section is never encountered in the 180 degree travel. To find it, take off the glove box and it'll be on the left side under there.

I have a clicking sound in my 05 pontiac vibe and it sounds like it is coming from the dash. When you turn the reciralate button on it will stop. I don't know if something is in the vent or what.


It could be the air temperature control actuator motor drive that makes this noise, have the dealer check it. It requires the dash to be removed to replace it and the door it moves, which is most likely sticking.

Clicking in dash sounds like turn signal relay. We think it may be hazard switch malfunction anyone know ?


we have an 03 grand am and took to mechanic. he replaced relay behind dash in center area behind radio. it still made clicking noise and he said it needed a new 250.00 plus turnsignal switch. went to junkyard and got one for 14.00. but it didnt help

we disconnected battery ( hoping that would eliminate chance of air bag going off) took out turn signal switch. placed switch on bench and took it apart with a T-10 torx bit. and cleaned TURN signal contact points with cloth. regreased a little with some of the grease that was in there. (not sure what kind of grease it is) Put back together and it seemed to eliminate clicking noise.

My 2004 Pontiac Vibe making a continous clicking sound.


Check the hose connected to the drain for the condensor. It's behind the passenger side carpet on the floor by the firewall. (pull the carpet back from the top. Then you will see the black rubber hose on the bottom) It just gets pushed back on. Passengers kick it off some times. The noise drove me NUTS till I found it. It makes a hissing noise while running, then a tin can noise when under power/acceleration.

Hope this helps!

Dual Zone Temp Control - Driver Side only blow Hot


that clicking noise is coming from a one of the blend door actuators under the dash. not too bad to change. while it's clicking, feel behind the dash in the area you hear it, to get an idea where it is. most likely your only problem. good luck with it ....
