Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
I also replaced the sensor and switch and checked the fuses. I have trie to add freo but with out the compressor running.....
I am not able to pull up your original problem but will tell you how to get compressor clutch to kick in.
Set the air to go on. The oblong black tank has a electric plug going to the low pressure switch. Get a electric wire about the same thickness and make a U shape. When you have your freon can connected at the fill port around the black tank, inset the U shaped wire into the socket you took off and it will bypass the lowpressure switch. Fill the system with the 1 can of Freon. Close off the Freon, remove the jumper from the bypass, and see if the compressor starts to "cycle". Have some type of gauge and measure the amount of charge in the system. Too much is not good either. Coming into your case after you have done things I am assuming the system was not fully charged. If everything else is working properly then only a low charge would prevent the compressor from engaging.
