It sounds like the auxillary fan motor is dead. It only comes on when the car heats up to a certain point and automatically when the air conditioner is turned on. Since it's making a terrible sound, you may check to see if something is lodged in the fan. Outside of that, just replace it. The fan should probably cost you around $100. (that's just my guess though) I'd probably go to junkyard and pull one off of something there. Would be much cheaper. The two fans are probably mounted in the same plastic shroud so you'll have to remove them both to replace the aux fan. You can still drive it without the a/c on, but I wouldn't be in bumper to bumper traffic for 35 minutes at a time. As long as you are driving, you don't even need the fans going, the air going across the radiator from driving will be sufficient to cool it down. Just watch your temp gauge if you are idled for too long and you can shut the motor off, leave the key on and the fan will continue to blow. Good luck.

Loud Noise in Central Dash area, 2000, F-150,,Sounds like a fan hitting against a heavy plastic part.Starts around 45MPH.. I think its either air flow or speed causing it.

Have you checked to see if the heater motor is ok. Sometimes the newer ones have a bearing in the end by the plastic fan and the bearing will allow the fan to drop down and cause a loud noise when running. To check turn off the heater motor fan on the dash and see if the noise goes away.

My 2000 ford winstar heater just blows cold air with this loud noise like somthing is trying to open with a clicking noise an this noise keep going on an still no heat

Looks like you do have a problem with the shutters under the dashboard. These are closing or open when you do need separating the outside air vent,to internal vent. Also you do not have any hot air,probably the heater valve does not work either is blocked or seized. Check the fault with a qualified electrician for a good and accurate job with less money and no damages ( unexpected).
Good luck.

Air conditioner makes noises after it starts

I do not think that the battery change and the noise for the a/c is related, probably just a coincidence.

If the a/c makes a loud noise when it is turned up, I would try switching to vent to see if the noise is still there. If it is, then it is the ventilation fan likely located on the firewall or under the dash under some plastic paneling.

There is no reset button for the a/c.

Good luck on this repair.

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.
