Clunking noise in my Towncar

My 1993 Towncar has a clunking noise in the

right front dashboard behind and to the left of the glovebox . The noise seems to be emitting from a black canister. Also the gauge in the dashboard that gives me the outside temperature has gone bonkers.

This started after I used my cassette player to receive my Sirius Radio signal.

I don’t know if that had anything to do with the clunking noise because the noise

doesn’t seem to become from the radio but from the canister type thing behind the glovebox… Thanks…TERRYlee

Move all the heater/AC controls to “off” and see what happens…Also, have you looked into the “Cash For Clunkers” program?
