Question about 2001 Ford Ranger Regular Cab
Hi can anyone help me with this problem? My AC is always on. The only time it goes off is when the heater control is set to off or panel. In the Floor, Panel/Floor or Defrost settings AC is always pumping I would like to fix this problem I'm using more fuel with the AC always on. When I have the heat on the AC keeps pumping. Lots of heat just the compressor wont turn of it shouldn't run when the heat is on. Now I disconnected the electrical connector on the compressor clutch cycling switch and this makes the AC pump turn off. So I think the problem is before this? Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance. My Ford Ranger is always blowing cold air out of the vents, even when I don't have the AC on. It's killing my gas mileage. How do I know where to start?
My Ford ranger does this too. It's been a while since I read on this but if I'm not mistaken I think this is normal.

Check for a vacum leak from the engine to the a/c.The color of the hose is black. Also check if the heater control valve hose is unplugged. If you have vacuum the it sounds like the door for the vent/floor/defrost is broken.

The blend door actuator is vacuum driven. It sounds like you have a vacuum leak. Trace the vacuum lines starting at the firewall in front of the passenger side. With the heater or AC on HIGH and directed at the front vents, listen for a leak or trace the vacuum line back ward to try to find a leak. All the best.
