The only thing that causes this is a low system
refriderent charge, base on how fast u say the compressor kicks on and off, u have a leak, most likely the AC line O rings and the front compressor shaft seal

Why does my ac compressor come on when I turn my heat on?


If the defroster is on it will use the air conditioner to pull moisture out of the air before it blows it back on your glass. Prevents condensation. Try turning your heat to just floor or front vents and it see if it still kicks on.

A/C stopped working and blowing hot air. Is there a fuse to check?


In almost every case, when hot air blows while AC is turned on, it's an indication the system is low on refrigerant. This could be due to a leak in the system. There are do-it-yourself kits sold at most auto parts stores or a qualified service station can recharge your system (they have to check for leaks prior to recharging the system).

If you can hear the compressor kicking on and are still getting hot air, check coolant level. If coolant level is good and compressor is kicking on, you may need to change out your thermostat.

A/C blows good cold air and everything works as it should, however when I turn the A/C on (doesn't matter what fan speed) I hear a constant clicking/ticking noise coming from what sounds like a fan


What you are most likely hearing is the compressor kicking on/off. The constant kicking could be a sign that there's insufficient refrigerant to keep the compressor running continuously without shutting on/off. Eventually, the compressor won't kick on at all, a safety feature designed to prevent doing damage to a compressor that's undercharged. Have the AC system checked.

2002 lancer air cond serviced recently and now the compressor wont kick in


The compressor is designed not to kick in unless there is enough coolant in the system. If the air conditioner is low on coolant it will not run when the AC is turned on. If it was serviced but not sealed up correctly , the coolant may have leaked out. You will have to stop the leak and recharge it for the compressor to kick in.
Also be sure to double check the fuses on the car. Flat fuses and block fuses just in case a system was accidentally shorted.

Air compressor does'nt kick in


you may have a leak in your ac system. its possible that the previous owner charged the ac to help sell the car. most newer cars have a sort of safety switch to protect the compressor from damage. if the ac pressure is too low, the compressor wont turn on. have a shop do a quick check of the pressure. it only takes a minute or so. if it is low, then thats definitely your problem. you will need to have the leak fixed and the ac recharged for it to work properly.

Air compressor not ff


if this is happening while the selector is in defrost mode it normal... if it happening while in any mode other than defrost or a/c then check the compressor relay or control head

A.C. NOT BLOWING COLD


My AC went out suddenly and it turns out I got a major leak in one of the tubes in the AC system and thus warm air. When I bought the first can of refrigerant it didn't take much to get the pressure back where it should be. After some good advise I learned that my compressor was kicking on and off (you'll hear it cycle on and of every few seconds or so) and not STAYING on. Turns out because the system was drained of coolant I had to fill the tank a little at a time and actually go over the recommended pressure to force the air out of the line and get enough coolant in the system to kick the compressor on.
Turns out it was all for not...given the hole in my system it just leaked right out. I live in GA and still don't have it fixed; I was quoted $800 to fix it and figured I could live with it.
