Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer
2002 Lancer and the AC has started cutting out when driving. Took it to mechanic but they couldn't replicate the problem. Seems to happen when the ambient temperature gets really hot (90 degrees or higher). Works fine in the mornings but cuts in and out throughout the day, and stops completely around 4-5 p.m. No clue what would cause something like this but it's interesting that we're all having this issue with the same year and model.
I have a '03 Lancer that had the exact same problem. I pretty much had it down to a formula based on temp., humidity, cloudiness, etc. as to when the AC would work or not. I took it to a couple of shops and they couldn't figure it out. I finally took it to the dealer and they quoted about $1000 to fix, said "no way." Anyway, it turns out that both the AC clutch coil and AC thermostat needed replacing. I found a shop that fixed me up for less than $350. Works like brand new again. Hope that helps and good luck.
