If this noise is a clicking sound and is coming from the front center of the dash, then it may be the blender door motor which will require removal of the dash to replace it. It will keep the door from switching from heat to a/c. Does the odor smell like you have a freon leak in your a/c evaporator core or does it smell like a rat stuck in your heater and a/c ducts?

Loud Noise in Central Dash area, 2000, F-150,,Sounds like a fan hitting against a heavy plastic part.Starts around 45MPH.. I think its either air flow or speed causing it.


Have you checked to see if the heater motor is ok. Sometimes the newer ones have a bearing in the end by the plastic fan and the bearing will allow the fan to drop down and cause a loud noise when running. To check turn off the heater motor fan on the dash and see if the noise goes away.

I smell antifreeze and my heater is blowing cold air in my 97 eclipse


Hey there,

Your heater core is done. In cold weather the inner windshield area directly under your defrost vents will begin to frost over, and actually ice over in really cold weather. That is because of the nasty stuff being released. The part itself is not that expensive, but the service is due to having to disassemble the whole dash. Do yourself a favor and.avoid turning the fan or heater on until you get it fixed. Toxic stuff.

My air conditioner blows hot air and my heater blows cold air. The heater will warm up after the engine has been running for awhile but when I turn the air conditioner on it takes power away from the...


check your blower motor under the passenger side of the dash, round plastic box three screws pull it out something might have fallen though your cowl and chewed up the fan blades. as for the ac your r-12 is probly empty or has a leak bring it to a local garage and have them flush and fill your cooling system. heater would be your thermostat not openig properly, by far your cheapest fix under ten dollar part.

1999 isuzu amigo water in passenger and driver floorboard no antifreeze smell at all.


this sounds like a build up of condensation (water) possibly in your ac/heat ducting or possibly in the plastic casings under the dash that house some of the heating and cooling components. cold ac components close to warm or hot heating components will lead to water build up this is why there should be a drain tube for the plastic housing under the dash board that leads to the outside of the vehicle. this drain tube may be clogged or may be disconnected and not draining to the outside but instead its allowing the water to fall into the area under your dash board. FYI you can sometimes see these drain tubes drip water on cars that use their air conditioner a lot, it looks like the car is leaking water from the bottom but it's just the water draining away from cool air conditioner lines on a hot day and draining properly to the outside of the car and not on the floor inside.

Clicking noise from dash near a/c controls and radio area. possibly fan assembly fault


I doubt if you have a fan problem. More than likely you have a bad actutor motor. There are 2 small electric actuator motors under the dash. The temperture door actuator moves the air temperature door, which controls the temperature of the air coming from either the a/c or heater vents. The mode actuator (which is probably the one you hear clicking) controls the mode of operation, or more simply, which vents the air will be coming out of. When the internal gears of the mode actuator fail and start slipping, they make a loud repetative "clicking" sound, which is what you are hearing. Another symptom that may or may not accompany this situation is a longer than usual wait time for your mode selection to occur. So to sum up, a loud repetative clicking sound from the center of the dashboard possibly accompanied by a longer than usual wait time for your ac,heat or defrost mode to occur, usually indicates a failing mode door actuator.

2005 Lincoln Town Car has a gurgling noise under dash when car is idling & when you shut it off. Form dealer told me this is normal. I don't believe it is.


Sometimes a VERY slight hiss is audible after using the ac. But a gurgling is not normal and usually a sign that there is air in the cooling system. The noise is the air "gurgling" through the heater core. I'd almost bet money that's the problem.

If sound comes from under the dash, it might be an hvac actuator that is having a problem? Sometimes you can put your hand on it and feel the vibration? Sometimes with a relay, you can do the same thing.
