Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander
A/c light blinks occasionally i get about 5 mins of cold air then i get 2-8 mins of hot while moving or stopped
Had the same problem, checked all possible solutions but my service tech found that the Compressure clutch was not aligned properly. When the engine was cold, the AC was funtionning until sensor stop it but could'nt re-engage after the engine was warm (metal retraction).
He removed a spacer from the polley and problem fixed in 20 minutes!

Hey, another issue I had with hot/cold a/c and vent is the heater temp regulator valve located under the Outlander dash near the foot accelerator- valve does not close completely and allows some hot water to flow even when on off position. I didn't want the dealer to tear out my dash to fix the problem, so I installed a manual brass valve in the hot water line outside between the firewall and engine. Just have to remember to adjust it with the seasons.

We have to choices here.
first check the pressure on your a/c system and be sure that it's correct.
if a/c freon is low your compressor will engage and stop periodically.
second. if first step is ok then you may have a bad vacuum element.
they are located inside the dash and operate by vacuum. your a/c switch sends the air to open them or close them, if one is defective ( leak ) it may open and close allowing hot air or cold air to contaminate the system. " this is a very hard job to do "
so if first step fixes it then that's awesome if not let me know and i can look it up for you ( the steo 2 )
hope this helps
