    No. Everything works. It sounds like there is a fan with a stick in it. My husband found a fuse he removed that stopped the clicking noise. It was a 7.5 fuse in slot 16.

    What does that go to (check your manual or fuse panel cover)... You may want to check out that circuit and make sure its not something critical you need...

Clicking sound under dash on my 02 tahoe

Possible worn out actuators for the heat a/c system. Move the temp knobs/ sliders one at a time and see if it stops, also move the level selector to another position, like from defrost to feet, and see if it stops. If it does, that specific actuator needs to be replaced. This solved the mystery clicking in my 04 Silverado dash.

2000 grand caravan blow cold on floor vent but not dash vents

This sounds a lot like a door actuator it is locate behind the radio part od the dash when you switch the vents like to the floor upper dash do you hear a clicking sound? put your ear to the middle of the dash where the switch to the heat / cool is and listen for the clicking sound when you change the vents direction. If you do it's the vent actuator you will have to remove the face part of the vent and it's in behind that it is usually a white plastic box it may be black but most are white. The cost is about 90 to 120 Canadian dollars.
Hope this helps good luck.

2005 Ford Expedition: Constant thumping sound from dash when air/heat is on or off

Usually this is caused by a binding blend or mode door. The actuator keeps trying to move it and can't. Locate the exact source of the noise. Then disconnect the actuator and try opening and closing the door by hand.

2005 mercury mariner clicking behind dash

This is the actuator for the AC/Heater systems temperature control blend door actuator motor drive, the blend door is sticking and the motor gears are jumping teeth. Very soon you will need to have this problem repaired as you will loose the ability to control the air temperature at the register air outlets.

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.

When vehicle is turned off, a clicking or knocking sound seems to come from under the dash, and it last for a few minutes before it stops.

Sounds like the actuator that controls the mode for the vent system is bad or the temp actuator.

When u turn temperature control knob theres a clicking sound in dash. we had heat and when we turned it to cold and back to heat with no heat and still clicking sound. what to do?

An actuator for the blend door may have popped off or broken. Involves tearing into the dash, usally around the passenger side of the dash board.
