1)sensor in your setting switch is bad
2)low C fluid in your system will cause the compressor to constantly cycle on & off
3)related to #2 and if it's been doing it for awhile you will need to replace the compressor....(used one at local junkyard sells for about 50 bucks)
4)clock light would simply be a worn or weak display. Only solution would be to replace it or better still, ignore it.

Ran out of gas in 98 ford explorer sport. Put in 1 1/2 gallons gas more or less. Won't start. Answers/ hints?


Old fuel pumps don't like running out of gas. Hit the bottom of the tank near the center a few times. If it starts replace the fuel pump.

Why my 2001 Ford explores sport trac keeps burning down the ac compressor ?


It really depends on what is failing. If the compressor is locking up internally, it may be caused by debris in the ac system, or the compressor may not be installed correctly.
Too much or too little freon, too much or too little oil, and so on.

1999 ford explorer sport ac


CHECK THE CLUTCH CYCLE SWITCH.ALSO CALLED THE HI PRESSURE SWITCH IT IS LOCATED ON THE RECEIVER DRYER. YOU WILL FIND IT ON THE PASSENGER SIDE NEAR THE FIREWALL. THE A/C LINES RUN TO IT. IT IS A CYLINDER TYPE CANISTER. THE SWITCH HAS A 2 WIRE PLUG PULL THE PLUG OFF THE SWITCH AND JUMP IT WITH A PAPER CLIP OR PIECE OF WIRE. IT WILL FOOL THE SYSTEM INTO THINKING THE SWITCH IS GOOD THE TRY THE A/C IF IT KICKS ON REPLACE THE SWITCH.THOSE ARE COMMON PROBLEMS AND CHEAP AND EASY TO FIX..
