My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.The clicking sound you are hearing is most likely the blower motor relay. It is behind the air cleaner, next to the blower motor, under the hood. I believe that is what you are hearing is the relay engaging on and off. I would locate that relay and swap it out to see if the issue resolves itself. Power goes from that relay to the blower motor. When it acts up, the fan will quit working. I'm basing this off you already bench testing the fan so that is ruled out. That only leaves the relay as the other option in the circuit and since you hear it click, it is engaging.Also check the fuse in the interior of the vehicle as well as under the hood. Your system should have 2 fuses. One for A/C system (clutch) and one for blower motor.__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service.
