Load Clicking Noise coming from under glovebox area - HELP!

Out of the blue the other day, a loud clicking noise starting. It is 3 short, loud clicks followed by a 1 second pause, then 3 short, loud clicks. It is contact and repeats while the key is in and ignition switch turned before starting motor and/or when the motor is on.

This is driving me nutz -- help!!

FYI - A/C was recently serviced and truck is serviced regularly by a local diesel specialist, with the most recent being oil service, fuel filters and rear brakes.

Try changing the fan speed on your HVAC and see if that changes the noise. With the rhythm you have going there it sounds like something is either in the fan, or the fan motor is going bad.

Peter is on the right track. If you turn the Key on, Engine running or not, turn your fan off and do not hear any more noise, it is probably either be the Blower motor or the Fan Blade.

My daughter had the same issue with her car and when I took the motor out, a mouse had crawled into the fan cage and his tail was hitting the inside on the heater box.

Thanks guyz. However, the issue is happening without the a/c or fan motor on as well.

It is probably the diverter that is stuck.

Im having the same issue, first instinct was something the blower motor. Think I have it narrowed down th the diverter for fresh or recirculating air. Is your vaccum pump running longer than normal?
