Quite common for the air cond to switch on usually after key movements.The main problem really is the squealing belt.Check this belt for wear and looseness.There should only be 6-8mm of belt deflection between two pulleys.Adjustment by loosening the idler pulley that runs against the belt and tightening the long bolt behind it(from memory)or it will have a similar type of set up. If the belt has any perishing or cracks,especially on the ribs inside the belt,replace it. I hope this helps
check to see if the belt is loose, if it is a sepentine belt, [one that is routed for your power steering , air conditioning, and pulleys it just might need replaced, also chech to see if the tensioner pulley has not lost some of it's tension. ]
hi well this does sound strange, i myself have not heard of a modern belt needing to be adjusted, as they have automatic adjusting pulleys, which as you say either work or don't, i know some vehicles have an alignment on the tensionerpulley, but that shouldn't have an effect on the actualtension of the belt, i might be barking up the wrong tree here, i know a long time back, fords used to have a tensioner that could be tightened as the belt stretched, to this was only on the serpentine belt and not the timing belt, i think they are wrong..my opinion..hope this helps
