Hello, my name is***** for the question. If I am not online when you return please give me some time to get back to you. Can you tell me if this noise is constant? Will it change when moving the a/c and heater controls?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes its constant and does not change with the a/c and heater controls.

Thank you. I have one last question. Is this noise occurring all of the time or only when the key is turned on?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Only when the key is turned on

Thank you. This is either going to be caused by a failing blower motor or most of the time it is caused by a failing HVAC actuator. One of these actuators appears to be running and causing this noise. Does it sound like a hollow plastic type of noise?
