Question about Dodge Ram 1500
A/c clutch kicks in and out about every two to three seconds
It needs to be charged.
If you put it on a machine It will show low pressure on the low side isn't sufficiant, & a quick charge may get u through the season, but it's a sealed system, & if there is a small leak, it will get bigger, & need to be addressed ... i can elaborate about the posible leak areas of Chrysler products

SOURCE: a/c compressor clutch will not
Make sure that the R-134a level in system is fully charged. If ok then check A/C Fuse. If it is ok, then check low pressure cycling switch as they were known as a week link! Go to tracing electrical from there GM had problems with HVAC control heads also. Hope this helps!

those sensors could cause the issue, clean the MAF 1st, also clean the idle system using the following procedure, the IAC can cause cruise surge. I use this to cure these problems all the time.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve (IAC) and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

By pass both pressure switches one at a time with small wire or a paper clip. If comperssor kicks on replace the swich that you bypassed.
if not it could be the fan clutch ot the compressor. Compressor runs about $400.00
