Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
OK, I'll check later on this morning... where is the relay that turn it on? can I run a test to check it?
It been acting like it's low on Freon (clutch turns on and off),even though it isn't, I put gauges to it and it was with in reason. it's been taking longer each time to work then it didn't come on at all tonight in 3-1/2hrs steady driving! Yet earlier it would blow you out of the cab!
let me make sure when and if the clutch is turning during the daylight. I will get back with you later
Sorry I haven't been back to you, It's been storming here and not able to get to checking on the truck!
I will also check the low pressure switch. where would I find the low pressure switch on the ranger? I replaced my dads years ago on his Toyota Cressida and it was in the dash.. is the switch under the hood or behind the glove box?
I have given my rating.
Please don't close this yet for I haven't solved my problem with my AC.. I am very satisfied with the advice I just haven't been able to check it due to bad weather..
I checked the Relay, the fuses, all are good. Jumped 12v direct to compressor blows ice cold right away! Only thing left is to check Low Pressure switch, I'll let you know..
Checked the pressure switch (bypassed it), still nothing..
I'm stumped don't know what else to check.
Would you happen to have a link to an A/C diagram and also a wiring diagram for the A/C is well? There is NONE to be found on the internet! I've heard and read that there is a W.O.T (wide open throttle) snsor and relay on here to but I haven't found one... Thanx
I will get a diagram today at work and send it to you this evening. It is possible that it is not getting the ground signal from the computer to the clutch relay. With the key on and the a/c on check the power and ground on the relay. One pin goes to the clutch on the compressor. Two of the remaining pins will have 12 volts. The last one should have a ground from the computer. The control head sends a signal to the computer to turn on the A/C. The pressure switch send signals to the computer to tell it its ok to activate the clutch. Computer then grounds the relay to turn on the coil inside the relay that pulls the switch in the relay to power activating the clutch. Hope that helps I'll get back to you on the diagram
