Sounds like a jack hammer... lol

My car started making this loud sound, sounds like a jack hammer under the driver side consol. It does it when I open the door, and every now and then when I'm driving. Has anyone else experienced this? It's so annoying. Please help.

Probably a HVAC door actuator. Should be able to pinpoint the noise by getting near them and listening close, while someone cycles the key.

it sounds like it's coming from right under the radio... Near that area. I had a Pioneer radio installed just recently but I can't see that being the problem.... But then again who knows! Just sick and tired of this noise....

Oh ok I will look into that. What do you mean when you say "cycle the key what do you mean?

Without hearing the noise, all we can do is throw guesses. By cycle the key I mean have someone turn the key on and off a few times but don't start the engine. Basically do whatever you need to to duplicate the noise.
