Question about 1994 Honda Accord
1. The engine has Idle Air Controller (IAC) that is suppose to keep the engine speed at a constant (even with changing load - AC, FAN, etc.) If the IAC is broken your idle will be rough or even die.
The AC compressor places a large load on your engine.If there is a problem with your IAC(Idle air controller)which is located on the throttle body it will cause the vehicle to die when you turn the AC on.Remove the IAC and check it for carbon.If there is carbon try to clean it up with a wire brush.
2. If your air con is drawing more power than your alternator/battery is capable of supplying - you could try fitting a higher charge rate alternator and a heavy duty battery also ensure battery to chassis earth is sound and clean of rust and grime at metalwork.
3.Another reason for this is that when the air con is on, ice and water forms on the outside of the air con pump and condenser. This ice and water can spray around the engine bay and if there is any electrics that are around it can cause a short circuit.The easy way to fix this is to identify the air con pump and condenser, then spay WD40 on all the electrical components you can see in the direct area.
WD40 displaces water and will cause no problems with the cars electrics.
