Question about 2000 Chevrolet Malibu
Very annoying! This a/c issue is driving me crazy. There is no pattern of behavior that I could say is making the a/c go off and on intermittently. The weather temperature could be cool or really hot that the problem could start striking at any time while I'm driving. Sometimes is hot but the A/C button light does not even blink once.
I've also noticed that when it goes off I either press or pull the fan control (selector, knob) and it comes back on the cold air, sometimes for a while and other times permanently until I turn of my car. When i press the button to keep the air circulating inside the car, it shuts down and also shuts down the A/C button and it goes back to the original position, which is the button to the left. And the problem starts again.
Please any suggestions and help is highly appreciated! Thanks!!!
I had the same problem and fixed it myself. You need to remove the In-Dash climate control unit, open it up and re-seolder the connections for the ac switch. It won't hurt to clean the contacts on the control knobs with alcohol. More information on the repair can be found at www.imcool.com/articles/aircondition/AC_ControllersAreRepairable.pdf

This sounds strongly like the control panel on the dash. If you can make a difference by moving one of the buttons or knobs, it's likely in the panel. Replace it. If you need further instructions, let me know.
