    If it's on CNG, then no worries. If on petrol it does the same, compressor might be faulty

    when at idle the ac of a car usually trips to prevent extra load on the engine, plus the compressor needs air to work at its best!, when the car is moving air is flowing freely into the compressor which keeps it on! no need to worry!

    There is not a problem with AC bro. Sadly, in these high temperatures, every 1000 cc car's AC performs like this in daytime, works fine at night, but in daytimes, AC just sucks when the cars is not moving.

    There is no problem as such in your a.c its compressor turn off while in idle position to prevent the engine from extra load just increase the idle rpm's if this problem is really annoying you or just keep pressing the accelerator slightly while standing on signal or in parking

    LOL @ CNG Hater Bro why are so proud to be CNG hater?? Father ky paisy hain apny kamo gy to pata chaly ga.

    Bro there is no problem with your Car or your cars AC its the temp which is affecting your car's ac performance. in this heat every car with 1L engine does same as your car.

    @poster,

    Getting it checked wont harm. Be sure the ac/cabin filter is clean to theres better throw in the wents to.

    But what you mentioned that idle cars A.c doesnt works and it works when the car is being driven this surly feels like a weak compressor.

    And people saying all 1000cc cars do this. People its not a carby car. 1000cc V-Vti Efi, so i doubt that. Probably all Efi cars (Cultus efi and Santro Efi also dont trip there aircon systems when idleing)

    I know Coure has a factory setting that its ac doesnt works on stops. (probably for better pick-up, better mileage)
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Well there can be 2 problems.

    1 - Clogged Condensor or condensor fan not throwing enough air at idle.

    2 - The compressor is weak and no longer working at low rpm.

    A/C is ac it should work at slow,fasht, in heat, in day, In night, In summers, In winters , blah blah

    Baki ac agar garmi main kaam nahi karta tu phir dil ko bahlana acha hai ka 1000cc ka kam nahi karta :p

    i have a vitz and had same problem. i went to punjab AC, they said that compressor of my car has weaken and need replacement and for compressor change condenser change is must. they estimated me 29+7k for these both. A guy from workshop suggested me to service ac and get the gas refilled(in 1k). i did so and it much better now on stops even but on drive its awesome.

    clean out the condenser and have your A/C high and low side pressure checked - along with a couple of thermometers measuring ambient temp and vent temps.. I would also check the condenser outlet temp by hand (dont touch the compressor discharge pipe unless you like to smell your skin roasting) Sometimes the A/C expansion valve starts to fail causing stupid behaviour - the A/C shops in Pakistan are usually frauds and want you to think that everything in the A/C performance loss is compressor replacement - It makes me wonder how many cars Ive seen with changed compressors but kinked lines and blocked condensers..

    The pressure tests and temperature tests tell a deep story. And if your A/C system is not designed for tropic climates you will never see good A/C performance specially at low speeds (small 1000 cc cars will never have an A/C perform like a Mercedes Benz Marco Polo Bus - just bear with it)

    Car AC compressor runs with the Engine and is powered by belts which runs with your engine speed. Now once the RPM is below certain level then car compressors are designed in such as way that it does not engages its self with the car engine. This is in design which protects compressor from failing.

    Now you said that once car is stationery then compressor does not turn on. This is because of the poor RPM and has nothing to do with AC servicing. Go for a throttle body wash and ask your mechanic to adjust your RPM after that.

    I am confident that this will solve your problem.

    It once happened in my vitz too when i changed the air filter, the rpm had dropped and low enough to let the ac work. And also the brake would fail near signals or traffic when i lift the foot from accelerator to press the brake.

    My problem was fixed by a cng workshop who adjusted the cng adjustment/fine adjustment screws.
    I dont know if its right but i usually first get the throttle and air sensors cleaned and then change the air filter and then get rpm and cng screws adjusted but thts once in 2-3months.

    See if ur car is trembling when theres no foot on accelerator, very low rpm can sometimes even cause the brakes to become really hard and useless like it would be when ur car engine is off.
