My car's A/C is giving the following problem. The A/C compressor stops working randomly. fan keeps running and blowing warm air. When the A/C is working, it's working perfect. Happens both at high speeds, low speed and even idle.
If I turn off the AC and back on, compressor still doesn't kick in. But if I switch the ignition off and then back on, compressor starts working and cooling becomes alright. But the same thing happens again in less than 3-4 minutes...and sometimes after 5-10 minutes.
So basically, the compressor stops spinning and power cycling the ignition brings it back. The AC switch does nothing. I haven't been able to observe any pattern to it except maybe that it's worse at high speed (interval time between two occurrences is less than 2 minutes at times).
Thanks in advance.
