Sounds like the blend door motor on the heater box is broken

    you would more than likely have to remove the dash and the heater box. if you look under the right side of the dash where the heater box is and you can see you motors you could try to test those first by turning the knobs and watch to see if they move.

2005 ford explorer will only blow cold air no matter what ther thermostat is set at, and it makes a clicking noise when it is on, why is this....please help.

You may have a thermostat that is stuck closed.  If it doesn't open, hot coolant cannot reach the heater core, thereby blowing only cold air.

Can not turn on my explorer

you may have abad hot /cold blend door acuator.its bolted to air box. also make sure both heater hoses going to heater core are hot,if only one is hot and the other is luke warm or cold then you may have a clogged heater core,remove hoses (@ core) and flush with water hose go both ways a couple of times. good luck hope this helps.

if the heater hoses going in and out of the heater core are hot, then your temp blend door is not moving to allow heat from the heater core into the car. either the temp knob or blend door motor is bad. some are vacuum, some are electric.

The blend door (mode door ) is a very common issue there is even an associated TSB t(technical service bulletin) it has to do with the blend door becoming warped and binding the accuator. In an opened or semi-closed position
