If compressor isn't kicking in, check the connector atop the a/c accumulator, beside the coolant recover tank, in the engine compartment. That connector is atop a black bottle, and the connector goes to the low pressure switch. These switches do fail, and you can jump a wire across the connector terminals to see if the compressor comes on (engine running). As this circuit provides part of the ground path from the compressor clutch, if the switch is open, the compressor will never turn on. If the switch is failed, it can be replaced without opening the a/c system. Just disconnect the connector, unscrew the switch, replace it, and reconnect the connector.

Check the air directing servo motors under the glove box. they are 2 black boxes about 3"x3". you have to clean the contacts of grease with contact cleaner spray or alcohol.

The accord has to radiator fans, if it blows hot air and then the ac comes back on. My accord did exact same thing. The solution was replacing one of the fan. Mine happen to be right fan, when facing the front of the car. hope this might help.

It could be your low pressure cycle switch is going bad. Check the connection to the switch and it's is located on the A/C Accumulator. The other thing to check is the A/C relay and that is located in the glove box. There is a panel in the glove box that say's relay, there is three relays in there and one of the out side relay's out of the three is the A/C. can not remember which one it is. The middle relay is the fuel pump and the other one is the third break light. Switch the two out side relays and see if your A/C get's better. the other thing too is if the R134a is just a little low, and needs to be topped off. Good luck and hope this helps. if your going to try to recharge the A/C system your self, keep in mind not to over charge.

when you day the air goes on and off i assume you mean the compressor goes on and off. that is what moves th freon through the system. if you are getting cold air when the compressor is running then the problem is that the compressor is stopping and that would be because a pressure switch may be bad. it is possible that model has a thermal shut down too say if the compressor was low on lubricant and was overheating when it does run. but if it is a pressure switch that is failing and they do, it is an easy fix. if you follow the ac lines you will find the switch.it is small about the size of a sparkplug-attached to the ac line and will have a connector with two wires. if the car is running and ac is on but the compressor is not turning remove the connector and jump to two wires. the compressor will start running if the switch was bad and we are sure there is a good charge on the system. if you are getting cold air there should be a sufficient charge to close the switch. these switches can be removed without losing any freon. there is a valve below them that will shut off when the switch is removed. then all you have to do is get a new one and screw it into place,apply the connector and you are done. if that is the problem. hope this helps please let me know and good luck
