Taurus A/C Compressor & Repair Manual

I can not find the repair manual for the 2002+ Ford Tauruses, are they
out yet by either Hayes or Chiltons?

I got home from a short trip of about 8 miles and I went ahead and
looked under the hood while the engine was running just for fun. I
noticed that the A/C lines up front had condensation on them and that
it almost sounded like the A/C was cycling ON and OFF. But I was not
sure if this was possible as I had the A/C off the whole time and all I
had running was the dash vent at 70 degrees. I have the Electronic
Climate Control.

Car is an '02 Taurus SEL, 24V DOHC.

What gives?

The A/C system is probably just cycling on and off to remove moisture
from the cabin.

The A/C will run in AUTO mode, even when it's cold outside. It's done
to keep humidity down to prevent fogging. It will also run in all manual
modes except floor-only or face-only modes.

Also, the 2000-2003 Taurus/Sable are all pretty much the same. The
only real change is that 2000 is the only year the Duratec had coil-on-
plug ignition. I doubt if even the 2004+ are all that different, as it
was mostly just a minor restyling. Even the '96-99 are not very
different, although there are some more substantial physical changes.
