My 1996 Ford Ranger A/C does not come on. The compressor clutch does not seem to even try to engage. Was fine one minute than suddenly just stopped working next time I turned the car A/C on

Please checck the fuse to the clutch and also the relay to the clutch drive. Perhaps there is a loose line here that is working intermittent.
Try to engage and disengage to see if the solenoid works fine.
If not check if the relay contacts are faulty and heating.
If so replace.
I hope this must solve the issue.

Truck is a 4x4 and a 88 Ford Ranger, when you turn the key, the starter will not engage. However, if you ratchet the clitch, sometimes the starter turns over, Is it mechanical or the computer and does...


I know on mine (88 ranger 4x4 manual transfer case and ******, 2.9 v6, short wheel base) it has what seems to me to be something similar to a nuetral safety switch. The starter will not even try to engage unless the clutch is in. You're kind of vague in your description. But if your issue is not getting it to turn over when in nuetral, and not pressing in the clutch I don't think anything is broken, that it is a safety feature from Ford

2000 FORD RANGER, 3.0, SUPER CAB. THE a/c DOES NOT WORK. THE CLUTCH DOES NOT ENGAGE WHEN a/c IS SELECTED, ALTHOUGH I CAN TUEN THE CLUTCH WITH MY FINGERS, SO IT IS NOT FROZEN.


this is a common problem.
there is a pressure switch in the refrigerant system. when the pressure is too low, it stops the clutch engaging on the compressor.

all you should need to do is top up the refrigerant

A/C works fine when initially turned on, but after about 15 or 20 minutes it stops blowing cool air and feels like it's in vent mode.


could be a restricted orifice tube
does the compressor clutch cycle correctly or is it on all the time?

1996 ford ranger odometer / trip stopped working


Since your speedometers work, the problem is in the gearing to the trip and mileage odometers. Simple problem, major pain to fix but, remove instrument cluster - you'll have to remove speedo cable to get it out. Use the old Mark I eyeball to check for broken parts. Might even have to drop steering column - disconnect air bag first!

A/C Clutch not engaging on my Tuarus 1998


YOU CHECKED ALLOT BUT YOU DID NOT MENTION THE AC COMPRESSOR CYCLING SWITCH, DID YOU TEST IT? DOES THE COMPRESSOR RUN IF YOU JUMP IT, HAVE U CHECKED TO SEE IF THE COMPRESSOR TERMINAL HAS 12 VOLTS AND GROUND WHEN TURNED ON? THE CYCLING SWITCH AND THE COMPRESSOR CLUTCH ARE ALMOST ALWAYS THE PROBLEM WHEN THE SYSTEM IS CHARGED BUT THE COMPRESSOR DOES NOT RUN.
