    Yea.. I am having the same problem with mine not sure what the problem is but when I have the heater on only by itself it doesn't cut off. When I have the heater, and the Headlights on it will cut off and cut back on by itself. The check engine light stays on also. I was discussing it with my Grandpa which has a bit more experiece than I do in cars we where thinking it could be a Control Module but I am only 25% sure if it could be it. It does it to various of other things not just the headlights, it will do it with the radio, and also rear defrost. Also rear defrost when I have that on by itself the car will cut off and on I'm thinking that something is not giving enough current or electricity and I just got my alternator replaced so that wasn't it. I really would love to get this issue fixed everything else on my car is perfect shape.

Elantra 2004 when i put on the a.c the vehicle cutting off and the compressor making a noise and smoking

Possible that the compressor is jammed or struck and causes a high friction on the drive that the engine stalls on idling.
Remove the belt off the compressor to confirm and confirm the jamming with a manual check. now start the engine to confirm that it revs up freely.
You might have a faulty compressor unit which needs a very serious look, take estimate before deciding to repair or a replacement would be ideal. Also check the solenoid clutch.

Check engine light , check suspension

My towncar is doing the same. It actually started about 6 months ago with the fuel light, which turned out to be no problem, just some air in the line. My air bags did go out last week, so it looks like I have a low rider right now:) I'm in the process of converting from air bags to springs. I had the back airbags replaced but then the dang compressor went out and I don't have the money to replace that. The check air suspension light will stay on right before you have to replace the airbags. Turn your car off then on and if it takes a little while for the light to come back on you have a few weeks to go before it goes out completely. Oh and it is a real easy fix. Its gonna cost about 200 bucks for each airbag, but if you convert it to spring it will cost about 150 in parts.

Have you had your brake light sensor replace. They have a recall on it. Change out your drive belt and it should make the noise go away. As long as it's cooling(a/c) i would not change compressor.

1997 Lincoln Continental Suspension Conversion Problem

It could be a wheel speed sensor that went out or something... When working with the wiring, something could have just gotten crossed or tapped to get these codes as well. The compressor shouldnt be running anymore if everything was tied off properly. Take it in somewhere and have the codes cleared and that should fix the problem hopefully. I know AutoZone has a reader, but I do not know if they have they ability to clear the codes.
I hope this helps.
