Air Conditioning problem 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles
The AC on my Ranger will not cool. This started last fall as an occasional problem. At first it seemed that it just took an extraordinarily long time for the AC to start cooling. I found that repeatedly switching the AC on and off would cause it the compressor to start (I can tell when it kicks in because of the slight drop in RPMs) As soon as the compressor starts it cools quickly. This spring it had gotten to the point that it only worked every few weeks. I had a local mechanic look at it, he attempted to "jump" the compressor, checked fuses, etc but nothing would work. A few days later it started working and continued to work for several days. For the last few weeks it will not engage at all. The mechanic told me that it could possibly be the BCM and suggested that we replace it to find out. I'm concerned that this might be a shot in the dark and do not want to pay to replace something that is not the problem.
have the same problem?
