    the problem u mentioned could be due to 2 reasons.

    1. the ecu trips the compressor more often due to some fault in system.
    2. the condenser is not getting cold air flow while u are stopped. either due to a non working fan or due to excessive heat from radiator doesn't let it cool properly.

    and what jobs did punjab ac did on ur car and what was the result????

    Can you explain each and everything that Punjab Car ac did for the Rs. 11,000? Also, here is a quick tip. Park your car and run the engine. Turn your AC on and turn the blower fan to full. Look for the High Side Sight Glass. There should be a grey cap on your high side AC line from the compressor. It should be on the right side next to your right headlamp.

    If you look at the sight glass, it should be either clear or you should see bubbles. If there are bubbles coming, that means your R134a refrigerant gas is low. If it is clear, then your refrigerant gas is normally full.

    I am guessing that your R134a refrigerant gas might either be near empty/low or possibly overfilled. If the refrigerant gas is low, and they have NOT properly filled the refrigerant gas to the exact amount by WEIGHT, then your compressor will overheat and trip the pressure sensor. The other issue could be that your magnetic clutch on your compressor is not activating, which could mean a bad relay.

    Can you tell me what all Punjab Car AC did and then I can guide you on what to do? I am in Lahore, so if you would like to show me your car, then I can help you sort it out. I can get the service manual and see what it says.

    Let me know. Thanks.

    Check the foam between radiator and condenser , none of a/c workshops check that and most of time in accidental jdms that is the problem!

    Punjab car ac just replaced my comp and charged mev11000 and after almost 2 months the gas srted leaking. Now i have checked with 3 other AC workshops and all of them have told me same thing that Mira's orignal comp is not good for Pak. You should replace it with DUET comp and withbnew condensor

    if its heating up ecu will trip compressor to prevent it from over heating. common problem with mira and our champion AC walas will make u replace parts parts until the whole thing is replaced with a jugaro setup. In the end they will just jump the climate control harness and make the ac direct like in older cars. You will enjoy the cold air for sometime and eventually run into engine heatup problems.

    Checking compressor functionality is very simple. any ac wala will do it. if the compressor is engaging but not cooling only then its shot. if its not engaging then the problem is somehwere else. if the compressor is shot to this extent you will most def need a new condensor. I would suggest u hook up an OBD II device and cehck your engine temps when the ac trips.
