I have replaced the starter and relay switch and also a new battery and it still will not start. Makes a clicking noise when trying to crank , what else could be the problem?

Somebody on repair pal when commenting on my problems said that I had two blend doors told me how to diagnose the problem by turning the ignition on without turning the engine on and listening for a humming noise. He diagnosed it right I do hear the humming noise, the blend or over the heater core is opening, but where in the hell is the second blend door or the actuator that runs it. I called around to some parts houses and they do not know what I'm talking about. Help.

This thing looks kind of like a shock absorber with a handle on it. The person that owned it before me did have a lot of extras added on as far as heavy duty suspension. But I cannot figure what this thing is under the seat, and yes it is attached to the truck.
