2005 S40- Air conditioning

Any suggestions- my airconditioning works great for the first 5 minutes I drive the car or if I am in a covered parking garage. I had it serviced and had the freon changed, etc. There are no leaks.

First you need to check whether the compressor clutch is engaged when the cooling stops if it is still engaged and no cooling u have a malfunctioning expansion valve.this can be checked by connecting the service gauges and if the low side reads a vacuum then you need to have it changed.

I had the same problem with my 2005 s40. I took it into the dealer and they told me it was "A faulty AC clutch."
