Low on coolant...

charge the system, its easy to do... you can get coolant at Autozone, you'll probably need atleast two cans if its low enough to kick on and off..

2003 ford focus when turn on the heater the air conditioner compressor clicks on and off engages and dis-engages and when it engages it will make the motor cut out real bad or if you even turn on the


I suspect that you have a climate control system in the car. These work by running the compressor and the heater togeather to obtain the optimum temp in the cab. The hotter you want the less the compressor works. The colder you want the less hot water allowed into the heater. At some point there will be a confilct in the setting thet has the compressor cutting in or out to meet that setting requirement. As for the motor cutting out check the idle speed sensor as it apparently not increasing rpm to compensate for the compressor running

I have a 2001 Ford Mustang V6, the ac is blowing warm air. We checked the refrigerant and it is full. The ac compressor will kick on for a few seconds and then kick off. Why is the compressor not staying...


it's either low (in spite of your readings) or your a/c clutch is not working correctly or you have too big an air gap in the clutch.
First, just disconnect the 2 pin connector from the a/c pressure cycling swithc and jumper the 2 pins with a wire to force the clutch to stay engaged. See if it blows cold then, and stays engaged. You can run this way for about 15 minutes before you have to pull the plug.
report reulsts.

2003 Suburban. My air is cool in the mornings, but the compressor quits working intermittently..Usually after being on the road for a little while and the weather is really hot. Sometimes it's on and...


Hello: Sounds like you have an intermittent cycle switch. There is a silver can under the hood on the passenger side. On the side towards the fender there is a switch screwed into it, the switch has an electrical connector with 2 wires. Disconnect wires, screw switch out (counterclockwise) you do not have to remove freon. Make sure switch has new "O" ring, put some light oil on it and screw back on. (do no over tighten) What this switch does is cycle the compressor so the A/C don't freeze up.

Air conditioner compressor seems to quit after 1 to 2 hours driving-blower stll runs, but cold air stops green compressor lite is still on, but no cold air-turn off ac for 20 to 30 minutus, comes back on...


Sounds like the air gap on the compressor clutch is to wide, when the compressor turns off to recycle the electromagnet on the clutch is not strong enough to pull the air gap and lock up compressor. The air gap is adjustable and should be checked.

Air conditioner doesn't run.


it is the low pressure switch trying to save the compressor. the system is low on refrigant. on this ford it should be R-134a all new cars are that refrigant.

That would be the fan clutch on the compressor itself... if it wont take a charge with all setting on high and running then you'll need to get it replaced , have a specialist inspect it to make sure the innards of the compresor arent junk...I have same pronblem with my 97 z28.. but it will take a charge and last 3 months then i have to recharge...The clutch and innards of my compressor are going bad..So its a chevy known issue,,,best of luck...Ohh one more thing do you hear a hiss when you turn it off and on, the ac that is

Air conditioner doesn't work when the outside temp goes up


You need to take it to a local shop and have the freon level checked. It sounds like the compressor is cycling to much on the hotter days and is not running long enough to cool down the low side. this is mostly caused by low freon levels and with this type of system with an expansion valve is common. this is not a costly fix unless you have a bad leak or blockage.
