Subject: Re: Strange noise from under dash

Sounds to me like maybe the motor that adjusts the mixture of heated and ambient air. I hear something similar on my 88 9KT... it sort of hunts around a little bit from time to time. There's a test you can run on the ACC system. With the engine running, press the Auto and Vent buttons simultaneously and the system will go through a self-test. Takes about a minute to go through everything. The procedure is fully discussed on Townsend Motor's website. I think this is the URL for it: I just tried it and my browser timed out before getting a response. Their sever may be down. The fan being stuck on high sounds like blown components (resistors?) in the circuitry controlling the fan. Hoepfully the websites I reference above may help.
