Ford A/C on all the time

8 posts in this topic

I've got a 2002 F150 Supercrew with the 5.4 and manual A/C. The compressor runs anytime the the selector switch is on anything but off. It's not supposed to run all the time and it makes finding a comfortable setting difficult. Any ideas on why the compressor is always on?

Are you saying it blows A/C (cold) air out of the vents all the time?

Do you have the temp set all the way to cold? Does the comp. run when on dash vents? (At minum. it should not with those).

Do you have automatic temperature control?

Could be anything from an ATC head, crack in plenum or blend door actuator?

Are you watching the comp. from under hood engaging on and off while switch is being switched from on and off?

On the 01 f150's the a/c compressor will run on all setting except off/floor/vent. The a/c compressor will run on all of the other settings including floor/panel! If it does in deed run in vent and floor then I would check the mode selector switch to see if there is in deed power coming out of it in the floor/vent position on the Violet wire. If there is, its a bad switch.

Sorry john I kept forgetting to check into this at work. 4 has you pointed in the right direction. power comes from the lt blue/pink wire goes into the control head and is directed to the violet wire when the switch is in a position that engages the a/c. You should only see power on the violet wire when the switch is in the max a/c, a/c, floor defrost, and defrost posistions. There should be no power to the violet wire when the switch is in the panel, off, panel floor, and floor poistions. Its the only thing that makes any sense according to the diagram.

Let us know what you find!

I had it fixed. Apparently I had a $100 bill stuck in my wallet. Once they removed it things started working fine. cry

So what did you trade the $100 for?

The wife handled it so I'm not sure what they did. Took care of it at the same time they did the CC recall.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
