    There are a couple of things that you can check did you try and jump the low pressure cycling switch? Also there was a problem with the fuse box corroding on these vehicles, if you have not already checked you may want to check for power and ground at the terminals of the relay. If that doesnt help any post back to this and i will do some checking for retreiving codes from the automatic temperature control unit, I can not remember which buttons you press on that specific vehicle.

My 2006 jeep liberty ac blows hot air and the clutch doesn't engage ,it turns ok with your hand.

Check fuses, if ok, then check for freon pressure, if low on freon, low pressure switch, will keep a/c compr. from coming on, so it don't get damage due to low on freon, recharge a/c system, if low and check for leaks.

The ac of my 2002 explorer works well, but sometime stops and after 2 minutes works again.

I would check the a/c compressor clutch gap. As the clutch wears the gap increases. Measure with a feeler gauge (with the engine off) between the clutch pulley and the clutch plate (the part that engages and disengages while the a/c is on. The factory gap spec is .018" to .030". If the gap is greater than .030" then remove the 8mm bolt that is in the center of the clutch plate. Slide the plate off the compressor shaft slowly and look for a small shim (washer ) or shims between the shaft and clutch plate. If there is more than one shim then remove the thinnest one, reassemble the cluth and check the gap. If only one shim was found try sanding it thinner on a piece of fine sandpaper of emery clothe. Reassemble and check gap.
Hope this helps

Before you go looking for a electrical problem, Have you checked the freon level? If it is low, the low pressure switch will shut down the clutch.

A/c compressor engages intermittently

Check the connections on the plug going to the compressor clutch and on the pressure switch on the low side. Also check the gap on the clutch. It may be too wide after where to engage correctly. Good luck.

1997 Ford Explorer A/C Problem

you mean orifice tube? check the high and low pressure switches. Does the compressor click on and off with the engine running and the air cranked? if it doesnt, you might have a dead a\c compressor clutch or it could still be electrical. I would check fuses first, then high and low pressure switches.

Blows air and heater works but no ac

Blowing air just means the fan is working.
No cold air is usually just low refrigerant
but it could be a bad compressor as well.
Have the refrigerant level checked first.

A/C compressor on a 1998 Ford Explorer XLT 5.0 V8 not engaging.

Low pressure in the system and the clutch will not engage. The low pressure sensor is on it for a reason.
