It's just low on freon, low pressure switch will cut a/c compr off and on, so it won't get damage a/c compr. due to low on freon, recharge it you'll be fine.

In my 2000 ford expedition my temp gauge keep jumping back and fourth when I run my ac. Y?


Running the AC does increase load on the engine, and thus heating, so if gauge changes gradually, this is because the compressor kicks in for a while, then kicks out. If cooling system is not working properly, small additional load could cause temp change. Other possibility is compressor going bad and causing excess drag.

If change is sudden, loose wire somewhere near compressor could be the issue.

I changed the air compressor and the dashboard control panel last year and it has done ok. Now the temp. fan and the compressor fan won't kick in and the air compressor won't kick in also. Checked all...


You say temp fan?If you mean the cooling fans,then the ac is out of freon most likely,the freon has to be in the system,and enough to kick the compressor on,therefore turning the cooling fan on.
