Question about 1999 Dodge Ram

1 Answer

A/C works in 5-7 minute intervals

The A/C comes on for approx 5-7 minutes and then the compressor stops. If you turn off the switch for approx 5-7 minutes and then back on it will usually work. A/C blows cold air when the compressor is working.

07 Nissan Titan blows cold when ac on then after an hour it so it blows warm when I turn the ac off for approx 5 minutes and turn on the it's cold again. On long trips in AZ ac is a must. Help!?


When it starts runing warm check to see if the compressor clutch is engaged and turning the compressor.. Check for lines freezing up.. look for ice where the line(Pipe) GOES THROUGH THE FIREWALL into the evap housing. There is a relay that turns the compressor clutch off at certain times (to save fuel) .. possibly this is malfunctioning.

Someone will need to find out if the compressor clutch is failing, or if it is loosing power due to a pressure switch or other problem.
A faulty relay or switch could get hot and switch off power to the compressor.

A/C compressor does not engage for 10-15 minutes after start


you have a clutch gap problem, the a/c clutch has worn and the electric magnet can not pull it together. take your car to a local repair shop and ask them to set your clutch gap to 0.014" inch. this repair is simple and should cost less than 100 dollars

A/C air sometimes cold, sometimes not on VW Beetle 2001 Turbo


AC will not work with temps are cold even when it is turned on. The air is colder cause the temp is colder. The AC cycles in hot weather because the AC charge is low and needs recharging. You will know this if you open the hood run the AC and you will hear the clicking sound of the AC compressor magnetic clutch. You can recharge it easily buy buying a compatible can of refrigerant. I suggest buying the kit with the gage so you don't overcharge the system which will cause freeze ups
