AC cycling when switch is off

Can anyone tell me why my AC clutch cycles on and off when control is set to off? Does this have something to do with the ccrm?

I'm also trying to figure why my BATT save relay is picked up. I'm new to this vehicle so I'd appreciate any info regarding my situation. THANKS!!

If the climate knob is set to OFF, the A/C clutch should not be engaging. Hard to say but it could be something with the selector knob, a short, or a relay in the CCRM sticking. If it's the later, you might try tapping the CCRM gently with something like a screwdriver handle.
