I think if you hold down the off and floor buttons it will do a reset and come up with any code errors.

If your climate control is flashing for 6 seconds on start up then there is a fault in the system.

You will have to do a self test on the climate control. For EF/EL press OFF & MODE together until you see the screen with 88.8 and everything will be on the screen. Once the test is done it will either bring up a error code from E1 - E8 or if it just goes back to the OFF screen then the climate control can't find a fault with the system.

Hope this helps
Rick

Can you hear the blend door motor making noises while it's doing a test ?

I would assume that either the hose has come off the heater valve. Or get the car warm & check both heater hoses to see if they are both hot.

The noise from the blend door motor should be like a grinding type of noise it's hard to explain how it sounds.

The vacuum noise you can hear is inside or out side the car ?

No mate blend door motor is on top of the heater box ( around the centre air vent area) blend door motor is run by 12volt not by vacuum.

I would get the glove box out and check your vacuum lines are plugged in.
