NO that means that the system is working properly.The switch is a low pressure swtich and it is in the open position because the system needs a charge, if you bypass the switch you run the risk of burning out your A/C compressor. The refrigirant is also a lubricant.

How to bypass ac compressor on 99 expedition

Why would you want to bypass the compressor? Do you mean to bypass the shut off switch? If the system is low on refrigerant you can bypass the switch by removing the plug and jumping it with a paper clip. Running the system when it is low on R134A would mean it is also low on oil. I recommend adding a oil and refrigerant charge.

AC compressor won't turn on by itself.

I would check the low pressure switch next. The switch cuts power to the compressor if the pressure is too low. The switch can fail.
Same goes for the high pressure safety switch.
As for leaving the relay bypassed, you would need to use a test light or meter to see if you are using battery power with the key off. I would not recommend it.

The radiator cooling fan is always on ?

Is your AC on (AC compressor activated)? Try switching that off and see if it still runs.

Yes the ac/heater control switches can be replaced if they are still avail from ford, but after 10 years the number of parts carried by Ford for any model is low, but check you dealer and if he does not have one, have him run a locate, some dealer may have the parts. before you do all that check the press cycling swtich in the low side AC line to make sure it is working, if that sticks the compressor will not engage.
