The light on my AC button doesn't go out until I push it in to shut it down.
The fan can be off, but if that button is pushed in, the light is still on
and I assume that that means that the compressor is still on. I drive a 94
Ranger 4x4, and I had a 92 Ranger that worked the same way.

My reply:

Well, if the switch is pushed in on mine, the compressor stays off even if
the fan is off. I usually just keep the compressor off and the fan on, since
I keep the windows cracked (at least) at all times.

I'd push a Ford before I drove a Chevy, but I don't need to.

Andrew,

I got a Borla exhaust put on my '97 Mountaineer and noticed the same
thing. I have had it for a couple of months now, and I don't even notice
it anymore. It does take some getting used to, but it sounds like a V8
should sound now, not like some pollution-control strangled economy car!

If you turn the A/C button on with the fan off and drive around for about ten
minutes and then turn the fan on high, is the air immediately cold or does it
take a while to cool down? If the former, I'd guess the compressor is on, otherwise
it's probably also controlled by the fan switch. If the compressor were on
without the fan running at all, I'd think the evaporator box might ice up eventually.
