On a 1996 taurus I just fixed an ac line, and recharged the system, and the compressor constantly cycles. It will only stay on for 2 to 3 seconds then shut off, then come back on again for another 2 to 3 seconds, and keeps doing this. Any Ideas???

Are you sure the correct amount of freon was added?
How did it work before the line went bad?
If you jump the low pressure switch what happens?
I have a brand new robin air ac machine, and I put in exactly what the system calls for. I have no idea how it worked before, It came to my shop because of no cool air, I initially charged the system, found the leak, and reclaimed the freon, so I never had it working for me. I will try to jumper the switch and see what happens.
With the switch jumpered, it runs constantly, like it should, I must have a bad low pressure switch.
Sounds like the problem to me
I'll put one on and see what happens. thanks
Have a good one
