Question about 2003 Ford Focus

Unit keeps cycling on and off every two seconds.

Air conditioner in 2003 Ford Focus
Unit keeps cycling on and off every two seconds. Sounds as if a clutch is being engaged and disengaged and is very rough sounding. It takes about thirty miles of highway driving to cool down the inside of the vehicle.

Sounds like it is low on R-134a (refrigerant). When an A/C system is low, it cycles real fast.. Hope this helps. Cobra.. :-)

My engine stalls out when running air conditioner


I agree that it's probably seizing up and here's a video I made on how to change the compressor. You also need to change the accumulator and orifice tube when you change the compressor. If the compressor came apart and threw chunks or metal shavings into the system, it's recommended to flush the system but that didn't happen on mine, so I don't show how to do that.

My 2001 Ford Focus' heater/air dial has stopped working. The heater will only turn on "4" and the air conditioner will not come on. What is the problem?


Sounds like a burned resistor for your fan speed. 2- 8mm screws removes resistor check to insure coils are not broke.
