You have too much sub cooling, creating ice to form on the condenser wich in turns gives you amazing cooling for a short time then when no more air can pass (b/c of the ice blocking the way) it warms up. next time look under your car after this problem occurs after a short time you will notice alot of water under your car. this is normal for this condition and in extream useage of the A/C system.

10 yrs ago i would tell you to go to Napa and buy a recharge kit, unfortunetly this has been banned due to CFC's and the Montreal air polution act in 1996.

This means you need to go and get a recharge from a service startino or your delarship.

I would suspect you have a short in the wiring to the transmission or the shift solenoid inside the ****** is shorted. Only way to know for sure is to get the wiring diagrams and trace down and inspect all the wiring that the fuse powers.

Sounds like you have a leak in the system. Some leaks are very small and can be tricky to detect. Have your shop add dye to the system. This dye will show up any leak when using a" black" light. I

Could be the relay, the controller, the temperature sensor in the coolant system, the compressor, the R-134 level in the system, etc. What is SOUNDS like is that you may have a bad ignition switch or trouble with your harness. At any rate, the intermittent nature of it (I'm assuming that when you say "it comes back on and works again" that it works normally during those times) suggests a likely electrical issue.

HI. its best to inspect the switch for faults but, im sure this is a charge issue. i recommend recharging the system asap. it is drying up.

Possibly a Battery going bad, check your connections, if they are tight then you may need a new batter, if they are loose, then tighten them. (If the problem persists after tightening, have battery checked)

Driver Heated Seat 03 Suburban


The most likely failure point is the driver heated seat elements. They probably have excessive resistance and once they warm up a little they short out the module and it defaults to not working. I would recommend replacing both upper and lower driver seat elements.
