Crumbob is correct,or could be low freon causing this issue.


Ford products also turn on the A /C compressor if the mode on the heater is in any position above heat on the floor, so if you turn it to defrost then the A/C will cycle intermittently, Ford did this to help dry the air to help with fogging the windows inside, I would suggest putting the heater in the floor mode only and watch the compressor, chances are it won't cycle in this mode.
