2009 Chevrolet impala has a clicking noise in the heater and ac system


That is more then likely a blend or a mode door actuator , they have plastic gears inside that strip an get stuck an then they just click .
The air temperature actuator is a 2-wire bi-directional electric motor. Two control circuits enable the actuator to operate. The control circuits use either a 0-volt or 12-volt value to coordinate the actuator movement. When the actuator is at rest, both control circuits have a value of 0 volts. In order to move the actuator, the HVAC control module grounds the appropriate control circuit for the commanded direction. The HVAC control module reverses the polarity of the control circuits to move the actuator in the opposite direction.

The HVAC control module determines the door position by counting motor pulses on one of the control circuits. These pulses are small voltage fluctuations that occur when the brush is shorted across 2 commutator contacts as the motor rotates. As the actuator shaft rotates, the HVAC control module monitors the voltage drop across an internal resistance to detect the pulses. The HVAC control module converts the pulses to counts with a range of 0-255 counts. The HVAC control module uses a range of 0-255 counts to index the actuator position.

We just bought a 2004 Buick Rainier. Drivers side air controls work great. Passenger side is only blowing cold air even when it's set on 90 degrees. What could the problem be?


Do you have manual or automatic ? It's probably the Air Temperature Actuator - It's an electric motor inside the heater/A/C unit that controls a door that diverts air over the heater core or A/C evaporator . The HVAC - heating , ventilation , air con ,control module has the capability to set an store DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Could have one or two of those stored in the control module . You would need to take your vehicle to the dealer or some other qualified repair shop that has diagnostic scanner that can check for these type codes . These codes will not turn the check engine light .on. Different system .
?€¢
B0414 is for the left air temperature actuator.


?€¢
B0424 is for the right air temperature actuator.


The HVAC control module controls the HVAC door actuators to regulate the airflow through the HVAC system. Each actuator consists of a stepper motor, a logic circuit, and a potentiometer. The potentiometer inside the door actuator allows the module to monitor the current position of the actuator drive shaft. The module supplies a 5 volt source voltage to the potentiometer on the 5 volt reference circuit. The module supplies ground to the potentiometer through the low reference circuit. The HVAC control module monitors the voltage drop across the potentiometer on the door position signal circuit. When the actuator shaft rotates, the voltage on the door position signal circuit changes. The module converts the voltage value to a count value where 1 volt is approximately equal to 51 counts.
The HVAC control module calibrates the travel range of the HVAC door actuators when it is initially powered by the battery positive voltage circuit. During calibration, the module commands the actuators in each direction until door travel is stopped. The module stores the minimum door positions and the maximum door positions of each actuator into memory. The total travel range is calculated by subtracting the minimum door position from the maximum door position. The door actuators can be calibrated again with a scan tool.
?€¢
B0408 is for the left air temperature actuator.


?€¢
B0418 is for the right air temperature actuator.


Your best bet is to take to a repair shop , the dash (instrument panel ) has to be taken out ( apart) .

The running bords on my 2008 Yukon stop working


Circuit/System Description
The assist step control module (ASC) controls the running board actuators to extend or retract the running boards. Each actuator consists of an electric motor and a potentiometer. The module supplies a low reference and 10-volt reference source voltage to the potentiometer. The ASC control module monitors the voltage drop across the potentiometer on the position signal circuit. When the actuator shaft rotates, the voltage on the position signal circuit changes. The ASC control module supplies the actuator motor with a 12-volt control circuit and a ground control circuit. The ASC module controls the direction of the actuator by changing the polarity of the control circuits.
You should take this to a ASE certified repair shop that has the diagnostic tools to check for stored DTC'S in the running board control module . A code reader for check engine light codes will not work for this system !
This system can set numerous DTC'S

No , there are no vacuum operated mode, temp. actuators ,there are all electric actuators . Is your lacrosse Dual Zone Control ? Could be a stuck temp. control actuator . Do you get both heat an cold from that vent . I'm assuming it's a vent when you say grid . Does you lacrosse have manual or automatic climate control ?

The replacement of Temperature Valve Actuator Replacement - Left Side Is not difficult at all , Don't need to take the whole dash apart !
Remove the left closeout panel. Refer to Instrument Panel Insulator Panel Replacement - Left Side. Disconnect the electrical connector from the left air temperature actuator. Remove the mounting screws from the left air temperature actuator.

The automatic door lock on my 96 Honda Accord makes a loud buzzing sound when locking. Is there anyway to fix it myself? How do I take off the door panel to


My 1996 Honda had the same thing on the driver side door.

It was caused by a deteriorated rubber stop inside the door lock actuator module. The module is buried down in the lower outside corner of the door. Inside the module there is a track on which two electrical contacts slide along with the actuator, and a small rubber bumper stop. When this stop deteriorates, the contacts over travel and run off the track. Evidently this confuses the actuator controller into oscillation. The control module limits the time this occurs, so the buzz stops after a short while. There is somewhat of a spring return action to the mechanism, so the contacts return to the track, making things good again.

The dealer couldn't get just the rubber part, so $130+ for the whole module. My make-shift o-ring replacement only lasted a few months.

Definitely a chore to get the module out and back in.
