Strange Cabin Noise

Watch the video I posted. Below is description and video of the problem.

The problem I am experiencing can best be explained by the video I will be attaching with this post. The best way I can describe the sound is that it sounds like someone is tapping a hammer underneath my dash. This happens every time I shut off my vehicle and it happens approximately 2 minutes after the vehicle is shut off. The sound has been present for around 6 months now and does not appear that it will go away on its own. I'm not sure if this is a characteristic of the vehicle or a common problem. The one thing that I can recall before the sound started was that the vehicle made a sound similar to a valve turning off or something of that nature. This was a smooth and methodical sound, this is something much different. I hope this information helps.

Video Here:


If anyone has any idea what this might be, please let me know!

Re: Strange Cabin Noise

a gremlin under your dash with a hammer?
I have never heard that noise before. I first thought it was the actuator in the heater that was making the noise until I watched your video

Re: Strange Cabin Noise

The heat and A/C works fine. No strange sounds when it is operating. This problem only happens when after the vehicle has been turned off, as described above.

Re: Strange Cabin Noise

If it is happening after you shut the truck off my bet is it has something to do with the recirc door or actuator. I believe it closes after a certain amount of time once the truck is shut off. I can hear mine, but as you stated, it is a smooth sound like a valve.

How To: Fix annoying clicking heater/ac actuator under dash (w/pics)

The actuators move when the truck is shut off. With the truck on turn your controls to defrost then back to Max air. If you get the clicking it is the actuator in the above post. read the entire post and follow the links.

Ok, this must be the problem because when I change it from defrost to max a/c it makes the clicking sound.

So, according to your instructions, I just get in there, remove, and replace it, right?

Also...that part is for 09-10 Titan, I have an 05, will it still work?

Re: Strange Cabin Noise

I just completed my repair of the same actuator and had the exact problem you did. The part number you need is 27743-ZP00A. I have an 05 as well and be aware that if you have the rockford fosgate system, the amp mounting bracket is directly in the way. It is a pain to get to. Took me 2 hours but only cost me around $40!

Re: Strange Cabin Noise

My T makes the ten second ticking after merely turning my ignition on... It's coming from the center right side of the dash... My Climate and vent controls are still fully operational though... One of these days, I'll go hunting for the ticking gremlin under there...

I just got mine out. Holy #$&*!, that was hard as well to get out. With my big hands, it was not easy. I can't imagine how I'm going to get it back together though. Also, I do have the rockford fosgate system, so that didn't help. Anyways, I appreciate your input, as well as everyone who helped. Lets see if I can't get this back together.

P.S. I would assume this would cost probably $400 or more at the dealership for repair. After doing it myself though, I would probably just shell out the money, if your willing to spend it. The part is very hard to get to, at least on my year model. Everything is in the way and some parts cannot be removed that are in the way because they are welded to the frame. You need to have a good set of tools to get to it as well, so if you don't have those, your going to have to spend 50-100$ on those alone. Finally, it kills your back, being in a position that long. Luckily, I'm only 21, but I could never imagine my dad getting in their and fixing it himself without having serious back pain for weeks to come.

The part Number I listed for my 2005. The entire job took about an hour and half I think. What got me was that I couldn't find anything wrong the old actuator so I wonder if the moving parts of the vent go out of whack and they went back together after I installed the new actuator.
