There is a sun load and ambient temperature sensor that needs to be looked at.
there is a switch system connected so that under full throttle,the a/c is disabled to give more power.there is maybe something wrong with the override.
i would check the a/c relay as in the daytime,when hot it seems to fail.get a can of cold spray,and when the car is hot and not working,spray the relay.the cold spray can be bought at an electronics parts wholesale supplier.the temperature of the spray is -60F and it is great for finding thermal problems.
cheers ,ed

03 eclipse making noises in cold weather


First you need to find the source that is causing noise. On cold weather is very normal engine belts or belts idle pulley bearings or belt tension-er to make noise, especially when they are old. Also power steering pump too especially if the oil is very old.

A/c works on and off at random


does your car have enough antifreeze in it? If the car is running hot then your a/c is not going to cool properly. I would check that. I would also check to see if the clutch on the air compressor is trying to go out. To check the clutch grab the front pulley of the compressor and if it is loose or wiggles then your clutch is going out. You can replace just the clutch without having to change the entire system.

I have a 03 honda civicand the air conditioner wont work? it doesnt need recharged and the light comes on when i push the button but i get no cold air? any ideas?


I have the same problem right now, and from what I can figure, it looks like an intermittent thermal protector switch on top of the AC compressor. My 2003 Civic air conditioning works fine for 20 minutes or so and then stops working. If this switch is faulty, the compressor clutch won't engage and you won`t get cold air. I will get it replaced soon, but it seems like the access is not easy.
