A failed heater blend door or actuator can cause the temperature control for the HVAC system to stop working. A clicking sound from the dash area would commonly indicate an actuator fault. If the heater gets stuck on the hottest setting, the heater blend door may be broken requiring replacement of the heater box to repair the issue.

no heat clicking sound.
I had a problem with the heater box blend door also. I also had a clicking sound . There is a small servo that moves it back and forth the gear was stripped I pulled one at the junk yard and replaced it. I actually only changed the gear itself.

After running for a few minutes the passenger side switches to heat and will not go back to cool. If I turn off the engine it may work again.

Vehicle wasn't warming the cabin... warped heating box/flap. Cost me $475.00 to replace... mainly labor because of how time consuming it was to reach/remove warped part.
