This problem has been widely reported on '99 Explorers, so it doesn't come
as shock that the Ranger would have the same problem. The wiper/washer
switch in the Explorer was defective, and being replaced under warranty, so
you should get the same thing done with your truck.

Does anyone know where I can get a set of transmission crossmember
bushings? I have a 1988 Bronco 2, with the stock 2.9
and M5OD (Five speed!). I am tired of hearing the transmission go Boink!
when I change from forward to reverse.

Thanks,

Adam

Thanks to all who replied. I USED to be a referigeration appliance
repairman by trade and fully understand about the ability of the
airconditiong system to provide drier air. However, since I like having the
fresh air coming in on the windsheild rather than blowing out the vents or
on the floor - seems to be more comforatable unless the air condidioning is
needed - I would still like to disconnect the switch. To those who pointed
out the compressor anti-freeze switch, you should also know that the switch
is also affected by underhood temps and heater core temp and the compressor
will run in sub freezing temps when it is not needed to help dry the
incoming fresh air. Additionally in milder weather when the control is
placed in defrost, the compressor runs and if the air is already dry the
compressor isn't needed - it just decreases the fuel
economy............Soooo, is the heater/defrost control hard to get out? I
am assuming the defrost switch for the compressor is located on the
control....... AND just maby, there is a connector on the back of said
switch.....

Thanks again...
Gary

Double agreed on the light not been on while in defrost. Certainly the
defroster works much better with the compressor switched on, but it's nice
to
have control of it. Due to the pressure switch the compressor will not
engage
in temperatures below freezing.


I wish it did. I have to run the defroster all through the winter and the
compressor runs all the time. I hear it, I feel it, I get a poor gas mileage
all through the winter. Next winter I'll consider disconnecting it.

I checked out the new refrigerant I have: It's called "Isceon" R413a. As you
recomended, I turned the adjustment screw on the dryer and now I'll wait
whether the freezup of the evaporator goes away. It takes at leats a 90min.
drive so I haven't tested it yet.
