I have this same problem. The car can run alllll day long without overheating as long as I have the ac off. But the minute I turn it on and I'm sitting at a red light or just in park, give it a few minutes and it will start to rise! If anyone can give me any tips what can be the problem pleases email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
air conditioner stops blowing cold air at idle. Extended idling the temp gauge goes high and warning triggers.
electric cooling fan is operating. At idle the compressor seems to be kicking in and out, pulling the motor down momentarily.
