1999 Ford Ranger

Hey Guys,

I have a '99 Ranger that when the heater runs, I hear what sounds like the a/c compressor turning on and off frequently while I drive. This doesn't sound normal to me---A friend told me it could be due to a low freon level being present in the compressor. Is this correct" The heat and A/c both work fine.

Thanks, Mark

It's usually more like occasionally, rather than frequently. Frequently would indicate low freon. Normal kickons is for dropping the humidity in the cab for defrosting windows in the winter months.

Actually, it is frequently...probably every minute or so it cycles. So you think I need freon?

Your cycling frequency would indicate it does. It can be checked to confirm it.

A/c

Short cycling in cold weather is a normal action.
