Have a 1998 Ford Escort ZX2 with the 2.0 litre DOHC engine 111,000 miles. The air condition compressor will only work if the high pressure switch is disconnected. Had a mechanic test pressures, all within normal range. He replaced the high pressure switch, did not fix problem. I noticed that when the air conditioner runs that both sides (did this by touching the tubes under the hood) are ice cold, I thought one side would be cold and the other hot. That is not the case. Could that be the problem and if so, what could cause that. I don't want to spend a bunch of money on the car, just trying to decide if it is work fixing. It will work with the high pressure switch disconnected, but then that means the cooling fan runs on high speed all the time.
have the same problem?
