    when people put on the heat does ur a.c compressor make a drawing sound prob. every 10 sec...When i added my nerf bars tool box new cat and throttle body spacer i told my buddy to listen for it and of corse it never happened then next storm of course it made it stopped by his shop and he said dode always do it to help heat up faster...never heard that has anyone else? He said dont worry about it either since i dont need ac now anyway if it still does it in the summer we can figure it out...my buddy with a f150 heard it and said it sounded like a freon leak thats y it keeps kicking on....is this normal or is something going on?

    Hello, Is your truck diesel or gas? In the diesel when you start the truck the ac comp runs to remove in cab moisture. The grid heaters and ac comp cycle at the same time. If you don't want it to run there is a green wire on the receiver on the left side of engine bay in the back. You can unplug it. It's the low pressure control. I would just leave it. Because the ac compressor free wheels until its called to run.

    Hope that helps.
