The temp actuator is broken if it just clicks. rep the actuator and that should fix your problem.

How do i confirm a blend door problem?

Look at the motorcraft site & get to the parts area

Use your VIN # then your got exactly your vehicle

Enlarge the view of all the under dash HVAC Motors
or servos & write down the OE numbers for later

If you can have the module scanned professionally
& if that data is there, it may tell you the failed ones

Either way you try all the manual settings for air flow

The ones that fail to switch, along with your motorcraft
view of them ,will guide you to the one you have to replace

If that is the problem,only then do you go under the dash,
remove the glove box, etc

Also look at & feel all the coolant tubes that may be on the
passenger side sub frame rail or going from the radiator,
coolant fill,all heater related tubes & hoses,they may not all be hot

They all have to be hot or you have a failed heater control
valve somewhere

I have one here for my Lincoln LS to install if it stops raining
& snowing

First establish if you have hot coolant going into & out of the heater core,then work on the control valve if that applies then
the under dash blend doors

If you had the factory manuals I purchase you would be all set

Try the internet & you tube video also & ask for your vehicles

How do I confirm a blend door / actuator problem?

blend door concerns heat and cold air ducting flapper. whether electronic or manual truning of a knob there is a movement noise. a motor/s make/s a sound on electronic controlled ones or a turn knob harder at times to turn does this. then feel the changes hot/cold breeze and no breeze etc..on the vent according to what you turn the system on to do. it is best to confirm movement /motion of the internal motor or flapper during night time or early morning in the garage inside the car devoid of noise to hear the motor or flapping movement, must hear some motor effort or feel hand effort if cable to the heater valve is intact/ not snapped to open heater valves on the engine side. then inspect heater cable if heater is not working etc..hope this helps.

Clicking noise when heater is turned on

Does it do it with the A/C too?? If so it could be a broken fan wheel in the blower.. or a piece of trash in the blower housing.. like a leaf.. Post a comment so we know what you find..

Heater&air conditioning vents wont reach position make a clicking noise have no heat or air how do i fix? 2003 ford explorer

The clicking noise you hear is a stripped out plastic gear from the blend air door motor almost every car maker now uses little electric motors to control heater door panels,put it in the position for it to make noise go under your dash find where it is usually externally mounted remove it and replace it cost about 30 dollars at the dealer.depending on which of the 3 motors its is usually not hard to do.

Im not getting any hot air from my heater in my 1989 chevy 1500, i changed the thermostat and back flushed the heater core already but still dont get hot air from the heater when turn on. What should i do...

there a valve behind the dash which connected to the heater switch allow the hot antifreeze from the engine to flow to the heater core and back to the engine, check and make sure the linkage still connected to the valve. the valve work like a regular water faucet nobs in your home which open and close; over period of time the valve get seized up. inside of the valve is made out of rubber, heat and time cause it to seized up because the valve is not use on regular basis causing to seized up. the valve is cheap and easy to replace once you get to it. being 1989 i would go ahead and pull the old one out and replace it with the new surprised the valve hold up this long if its original.

No heat. blows but not hot

same problem here. so far ive determined that the car has the right amount of coolant, and the engine is running at the right temp the fans turn on and off and the thermostat seems to work correctly. someone advised the problem was the heater shut off motor but I dont know where it is or how to check it yet, anyone? also the car did make some noise from the blower motor so maybe the heater core is blocked with leaves or someting, ill check all before i bring it to the dealer.

I also ran into this problem on my 2002 Galant. I've found that the heater control value tends to get stuck on these vehicles, especially when the heat has not been used all summer. It will make a clicking noise from behind the dash when it fails. This is a common problem. See
for more information.

Car running hot, clicking noise in dash when turn the heater on

Thermostate goes bad (it might be placed it reverse way) or gatting stuck not opening. Engine might die it you wont have it checked ASAP. Also if you bought an aftermarket cap (not for GM) it might cause the ptoblem with coolant pressure. Check that it says for how much psi.
Hope that helps
Good Luck
