Default Help with A/C

'98 Ranger 3L Auto 4WD. The air conditioner on my rig cycles continously. I can see the clutch clikding in and out. This happens no matter where the temp knob is set and whether the A/C is on or off. Any ideas where I might start to look for the problem?

low refrigerant will make it cycle on and off quickly.

Understood but will that happen even when the dash switch is not set to A/C?

The AC runs in all settings except panel only and floor only. Yes, it is stupid, I know. But that's what Ford does now.

Rythmically. I can hear the clutch and see the change on the tach.
