Exclamation A/C Turn off at Full Throttle?

Does the Ranger cut out the A/C at full throttle to give more power? I've had this happen to me before on a Chevy Astro, but in that case about 250 miles later the alternator quit. I'm just checking here to see if this is going to be the same case.

Yes the AC will disengage at wide open throttle.

The alternator crapping out would be totally unrelated to any of this. If I were to guess, it was probably already on it's way down the drain and 5,000rpm sealed the deal.

Say, do you guys think this would be a good test to make sure your Throttle Position Sensor is working properly? At least at full throttle, right?

I'm not sure why you would need to test this.
