Usually sensors don't make any noise, but if this one is making noise, it's a replacement job.
locate the noisy cabin temp sensor and unfasten and unplug it from the harness and install the new one.

    Or, are you talking about a blend door actuator?

My 1996 honda accord doesnt heat up like it suppose to..unless its juss parked without any movement.. I drive it 2 miles away and it still doesnt heat up im concerned !! Any help ????

Thermostat stuck open?
Faulty temp sensor or gauge?
If heat comes out of the heater, engine thermostat is ok. That will isolate it to probably the temp sensor in the temp indication system (sensor & gauge).
The cooling system should be full. Temp sensors cannot read the engine temperature of steam or empty cooling galleries.

Heat coming from vent when nothing is on. AC is noisy when turned on but is not blowing out cold air. What is causing this?

Could be a blend door problem. On most modern cars the coolant flows thru the heater all the time, and the HVAC system controls the cabin temp by opening and closing vent doors. When you turn or slide the temp selector it makes the blend door or doors open and close for the heater core and A/C evap.
I would have someone check under the dash and see if the doors are moving.

No heat in my jeep

is engine warm enough? is your blower motor working? if yes, your cabin heater is clogged(with debris or air pocket). you may need to remove it by removing dash first and you will need to try to clean it with high pressure water or you need to install a new one. removing dash is really a though job.

before removing anything be sure that there is no air pocket in system. raise infront of car and let it dile. try to bleed bubbles from system while trying to heat cabin in high temp. try to sqeeze hoses coming and going to radiator too.

Hi, I have a late 2001 Audi Allroad quattro and I'm having a problem troubleshooting the the coolant system...I have replaced a clutch for the fan, checked the coolant type, level and problem...

1- Temperature sensor is the first to be replaced. When it is bad, it generates erratic signals hence the warning is on.
2- Also the bad sensor connector can give this symptom.
3- The heater in the cabin doesn't blow warm air since their is not coolant flowing through the heater coil. this indicates there is a blockage.
4- Has the engine got a new coolant since original one. It needs a complete flush through the heater coil.
5- If you have an overheat then this is a serious problem due to the water jacket gets clogged up. Need a professional shop to fix.
6- If you don't have an overheat problem then just doing # 4 will take care of your problem. Good luck.
