There is a blend door motor that moves the door in the HVAC box. When the motor strips it's gears or extends it's designed travel limit. it makes a clicking noise. Most likely, the door itself is broken. "Heater Treater" makes a replacement door that can be installed without removing the dash in most cases. HTH , Les

My 2001 Chrysler Sebring LXi Coupe has radio noise when engine is running and noise intensifies when accelerator is engaged? What is the problem and what is the solution to it?

the ignition system on your car is interfering with the radio antenna ,you will need a RF suppressor ,from any car radio outlet ,it fits to the antenna lead behind the radio. you may try moving your wires behind the radio and speaker wires as overlapping wires can pick up interference from the car just make shore they are neat and tidy.

What and how to fix clicking noise behind radio?

the clicking noise is from the Heater/AC air temperature control bleed door, either the blend door shaft is broken or the actuator gears are slipping over eachother that move the door, these used to be cable operated, an electric motor was added years ago for more precise temp control of AC and Heating, to repair this the entire dash must be removed, this requires a factory repair manual and is a 10-12 hour job, very difficult job.

2003 winstar no heat

Check the operation of the temperature control door. It is located in the center of the dash behind the radio. Look up between the gas pedal and heater case. It is white in color Move the temp knob while watching the actuator. If it is clicking it is bad. Good luck.

Heater in dash makes clicking noise, stopped no heat

The clicking noise you are hearing is the temp door actuator. It is located in the center of the dash. If you look behind the radio from the Passenger side of the van you will see a white square box with a black or green connector in it. Remove the connector and then remove screws that hold the actuator in place. Install a new actuator and reconnect the wire connector. This should take care of your problem and your heater will be fixed. I hope this was helpful.

Clicking sound

There is an actuator motor that controls the heater door, when these go bad they make a clicking noise. If the clicking stops or pauses when you change the heat from hot to cold the actuator needs to be replaced. There is no cable on the temp control it is electrical.

No heat , air always on, clicking noise sounds like a re lay not closing

If you hear the clicking noise when you move the temp. control on the a/c control head,it is most likely your blend door motor.The motor is located on the evaporator housing itself.If I remember correctly,its right behind the radio and a/c control head in the center of the dash.Gool luck
