On a 2003 Ranger 2.3L. is the "a/c clutch solenoid" a separate part or
part of the compressor? If separate, where is it located on the 2003
I used a multimeter measuring amps with the engine off to find an
abnormal current drain on my battery by pulling fuses and checking the
drop in amps. When I pulled the fuse for the "a/c clutch solenoid",
the drain stopped.
Looking to get my a/c back now. Just don't know if this is a short or
a part that can be replaced without dealing with the compressor.

The A/C clutch and its actuating solenoid are located
between the A/C pulley and the A/C compressor pump.
The A/C solenoid should have no current applied with
the engine off, so the problem is not in the solenoid.
It is in the switch or relay or electronics package that
actuates the solenoid. I don't know where these
are located in a Ranger.
.... Guess nobody here knows the answer to my QUESTION.

LOL. EVERYBODY here knows the answer to your QUESTION,
that's why there was no response. Some questions have such
a simple answer they are ignored, suspected of being SPAM.
Don't be discouraged. Keep asking. Someone will answer.
Chill, folks. I wasn't knocking the non-responses before these last
few posts, but the reponses beforehand that completely ignored the
question. I realize no one is pay here, but if you're going to post an
answer, make it relevant to the question asked.
Sounds like my problem is a relay, Thanks to all for the reponses.
