Question about 1999 Honda CR-V
The A/C compressor in my 1999 Honda CRV is cutting on and off when the A/C button is on. The compressor is fine when the car is running and the idle is up but when stopped at a traffic light you have to press the A/C button off because the compressor starts cutting on and off and the car idles too low. I've read several message boards with similar problems. At this point I am not running the air in fear that I will have metal fragments through the entire system. Do you think the compressor needs to be replaced or the clutch? I know the CRV's seem to have A/C problems but as far as I could tell it did not include the 1999 model.
The compressor is supposed to cycle on and off. The idle problem may not be the compressor but the solenoid that controls the idle when the compressor is engaged. A bad clutch would present in different ways, i.e. metallic scraping noise. I doubt at this point you are damaging the system by running the a/c.

I have this same problem. Took it to the shop. They said it's not the A/C but the distributor assembly needs to be replaced. It is causing the cylinders to mis-fire and thus the low idle.

If you check the American boards you will find that the compressor has been a problem in the 99 model.
