      They do have issues with the low pressure cycling switch. Is it a automatic HVAC controller or manual adjust.

      Based on what you described, there's two possible problems here:
      -window motor at the end of its life.
      -window regulator defective

      The teeth of the motor-to-regulator can shear off over time, but usually the problem is the motor is beginning to burn out. This is especially true if the window motor has very slow operation. If the motor sounds like it's operating just fine, then the regulator may be binding. Does the window to up straight? Or does it sometimes tilt when moving?

    There is a high pitched clicking noise whenever the fan is running in the cabin.
    It does not matter if it's on heat or ac, the noise is the same. It still puts out what feels like the same amount of air. The only difference in noise is the lower the setting that its on the louder it gets. It's almost not noticable when on max.

      Check the fan, see if squirrel cage is loose or anything? Also, with interior clicking noises check the interior fuse box, relay/circuit breakers. If they are clicking on and off, you should be able to feel it?

      It could be an actuator door under the dash, that isn't working correctly?

      The vehicles used in the 'How-To-Guides' section are generic and the information is provided as volunteer - that is, not specific for the repair needed or researched for every vehicle type and model.

      The photos are general steps of how to perform the service or repair. If greater detail is needed, by vehicle year, make and model - then reference these sources;, the local library in your area, the local auto parts stores of the vehicle repair manuals.

      The Mode Door Actuator ( MDA ) controls the direction of airflow. It selects which way air flows through the different ducts. If your climate control system has lost the ability to control which vents the air comes out of, the MDA has probably failed. Both the ATC and MTC systems use this device.
      Note: the actuator was made out of plastics and it's easy to break out.

    What is causing a hammering noise from under the dash when I open the doors?
    It happens if I use the key remote, or if I use the key in the lock. Sometimes the door locks will not respond to the key fob remote. Sometimes the hammering is short duration, maybe 5 hammers. Sometimes it goes on for minutes before it stops.

    My blower fan only works on the higher speeds (3,4,5) and not lower speeds (1,2)
    Is this a resistor or regulator problem or a problem with the blower motor?
    • HouseCallAuto

      Replace the blower motor resistor and if it were my truck or client I would also replace the blower motor and I would only use an ACDELCO blower motor. The most common cause of the resistor failing is due to excessive current draw from a degraded blower motor. Also, if you find that the connector to the resistor is melted or burned in any way, replace the connector which is sold as a part called a "pigtail". If the connector looks ok then great leave it.
