Classic symptom of the A/C condensor fan not working. Open the hood and you'll see a mini radiator looking thingon the right with an electric fan behind it...the fan motor is probably shot. That fan should be on the whole time the a/c is on..
Installed new condenser fan and ac blows cold air at all times!
Thanks fellows for the help!
Here are some tips for others needing to replace a condenser fan:
Condenser Fan part only price quotes:
Ebay (Heavy Duty Radiaters, Radpro, ebay user hmm20011): $90 delivered from Sarasota, FL
Remove the 2 bolts from top of fan housing attached to truck frame.
Pull condenser and fan housing up and out together. (no need to discharge ac, leave ac hoses attached to condenser)
Remove the 4 screws from the fan housing. There are 2 on each side.
You will need to cut an area of the fan housing that's will alow you to remove condenser from fan housing where the top ac plug is attached.
Unplug fan motor.
Remove old fan housing from condenser.
To install the replacement, repeat the previous steps backwards.
Hey I just want to give props to Ramdaddy for his instructions. I just replaced mine and your way saved me $80 because I didnt need to have my system drained and refilled. Took about 30 minutes. Thanks man.

I had exactly the same issue. I checked the AC blower mini fuse (25amp) and it was "blown". Bought a new one for .60cents, put it in and it works just fine...Sometimes it's best to look at the simplest things first!
