yes, I have the same problem on my 2010 Ford Taurus. I do hear clicking also. How much is that going to cost to fix, and or I have heard something about taking the negitive cable off the battery for 15 mins, and it may reset itself?

removing the negative battery cable is a myth. All doing that does is clear any soft codes you may have in the pcm, potentially making it harder to diagnose.

i concur with the blend door actuator, those are normally accompanied by a click click click sound that is annoying and repetitive. No TSB (Technical service bulletins) from the manufacturer on the problem. I cant remember if the obd2 was replaced by the CAN in 2010. That is the vehicle diagnostics system, if it is a CAN system ( CONTROL AREA NETWORK) system you might be able to scan it and get codes regarding the problem. If its obd2 (ON BOARD DIAGNOSTIC 2ND GEN) you probably wont.
