Question about 2001 Ford Windstar
What you can do is remove the connector from the low pressure switch. it is located on the line where you connect the can of refrigerant when recharging. probably near the accumulator bottle or directly attched to it. jumper the contacts in the connector with a paper clip. this will keep the compressor on in order to draw the refrigerant into the system. operate the compressor in 15 second intervals on and off. when the can stars to get cold plug the connecter back into the switch. if the compressor cycles your ok. continue untill the can is empty. if the compressor doesn't cycle, continue following the procedure. if the compressor still doesn't cycle, you may have a large leak. also your system is probably almost empty and requires repair and professional care. a/c systems require a good deal of knowledge and i would recommend having a professional take care of the problem.
do this at your own risk as there may not be enough oil in the system and the compressor could be damage
