Check the low psi switch and the high psi switch both will be on the lines you will have to look for them not sure exactly where low side may be on the accumulator try jumping them with a paper clip and see what happenes watch the pressures on the system because if pressures are to high or low you could damage the compressor or blow lines if either switch is bad it will cause computer to cut out the a/c clutch let me know how you make out

You were close! Most Fords have a CCRM (Continuous Control Relay Module) thats on the passenger side fenderwell. It has 4 relays: one for the AC compressor cluth, one for the fuel pump, and two for the electric fan (high- and low-speed.) The AC is the one that fails the most. You can replace the CCRM by removing the intake air filter box and working through the fenderwell openings. If it gets to difficult you must remove the wheel and splash cover to replace it from the wheel opening.
