Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Clutch fell apart and locked up on a/c compressor, so it's been replaced; but now it stays engaged even when turned off inside. When connecting the battery terminals I hear a click from the compressor as though it's on even before starting the car. Relay has also been checked. Battery being drained when car is off too.
Unplug the power lead from the AC compressor.If it stays locked up it a mechanical issue with the new Clutch. If it unlocks check the following. Look at the AC Relay. If it has fused or failed in the closed position the ac clutch will remain engaged. As I don't have the vehicle details I can't provide further details

SOURCE: 95 F150 wont crank
the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

An ignition switch probably isn't the problem, because the vehicle probably wouldn't shut off if the switch were the problem. When you turn your car off the battery is not being drained any longer from the switch unless the vehicle is unable to shut down.
The other possibility that will definately cause a battery to lose juice while not running is a faulty starter sellinoid. When these sellinoid's, (may not be spelled correctly, sorry about that) are bad, the motor is turned off but the battery is still drawing current, but the engine is not running to allow the battery to recharge.
It could also be a bad battery. Check your battery cylinders by removing the plastic covering and checking the water level in the cells. Dry cells in a battery will not allow a jump.

You obviously have a short. I think it may be your starter selinoid or starter relay. It could also be a mercury switch failure in your trunk or under the hood. They turn the lights on & off accordingly under the hoods. Have your starter checked out. Also it could be an ignition switch problem. Check the starter first. Good luck!
