Like I was just saying,I got to wondering,when I fix the oil separator leak,and in turn fixes the erratic idle,won't that stop the problem with the a/c cutting out ? Our '97 Escort is doing the same thing...

2000 lincoln town car air conditioner want cut off


some cars the fan runs all the time to keep inside air from getting stinky. if the air is cold just turn the temp up

My heater and air conditioner shut on and off


The air conditioner is controlled by in cab air temperature so if the air temp is low then the ac compressor clutch will cycle as the thermostat switches it on or off. If you want it to work all the time you may have to run the heat as well so that the thermostat is fooled into thinking that the air temp is hot.. Have the system checked out by an auto electrician

Why does the air conditioner on my 2003 nissan altima only work on position 4?


If you mean the blower only works on high, it could be the resistor that cuts down the power for the other speeds.

Air compressor cuts on & off when the car is running, air conditioner is not getting cold?


More they likely, low on freon, will need to do a leak test, to fine out where the leak is at, the reason the a/c compr, shut off, is the low pressure switch cut it off, when low on freon, that way the compr, wont get damage, or you could just keep recharging the a/c system.

Air conditioner starts blowing cold air then blows warm


This is most likely the cycling of the AC unit. As the compressor pressurizes the 134a Freon you get the cold air, once it reaches a certain pressure it cuts out. If you are low on Freon it will cycle out more often. Check your freon level with a gauge to see if your within the proper tolerance. If the compressor runs for a period and doesn't reach the right pressure it will cut out to keep from damaging your compressor so it is important to keep the correct amount of freon in the system.

I have a 2001 Chevy Venture, this fall all of the sudden the air conditioner quit blowing cool air you can push the switch for AC but it doesn't light up or blow cool air. and the rear defroster quit...


I'm afraid I must recommend some professional help with this one. Or maybe a mechanic friend.
There's so many things..... For example the 134a (freon) may have leaked causing the Low Pressure Cut Out Switch, (in the hose under the hood) to keep the compressor off so as to not burn it up.
Could be a fuse or relay. Could be the switch controll on the dash... See what I mean?
Sorry but in my opinion you'll have to bite the bullet and pay the piper. Cheaper in the long run, though. You can replace many things before you luck onto the problem part.

Heater problem


is your heater set on defrost this will cause your engine fan to run because it turns on the compressor for air conditioner this helps to extract moisture from your warm air defrost  and the fan in the engine compartment helps keep it the engine cool from the extra load on the engine this is normal

Climate Control (740 GLE)


When your a/c compressor clicks in and out like that it usually means that your refrigerant level is low. It cycles like that to keep you from damaging the compressor. Hope this helps.
