First, why are you changing the A/C compressor? The most common problem is the clutch that goes bad and won't engage. It's a magnet and they get rusty and needs to be changed. If it's just not working it could just be low on freon. A comp. won't engage if the pressure is too low. You need to "jump" the sensor with a wire to make it kick in to refill the system. Another thing is that the system is under pressure, so when you unhook the lines freon blows out into the air which is against the law. It needs to be evacuated with a special machine.(By a qualified repair shop)

What could be the possible cause of an A/C compressor not disengaging on my 97 F150?

check that the thermostat in the evaporator box is working as it controls the ac clutch action. If it is not functioning correctly (or the relay that it controls is faulty) then it will continually read hot air and not cabin temperature.

2005 Ford f 150 AC blowing hot air compressor not coming on. What should I cheek first.

The first thing to check is the pressures in the ac system. If it is too low on R134 the low pressure switch will prevent the compressor from turning on.

1999 Ford F150 AC fully charged with freon is blowing hot air

there are few things you need to check out:
1. if the compressor is overcharged it will shut down and you won't get any cool air
2. the thermostat for your cooling system is bad
3. the link to adjust the temperature is too short (did you feel the switch loose when changing temperature from hot to cold)?
hope this helps.
