same as stated above
from a cold start air conditioning works fine and will continue to work fine as long as engine is running and air conditioning stays on, drove 200 miles and air blew cold entire time. Stopped to get a drink turning off car. Engine restarted but Air conditioning compressor would not come back on. When engine completely cooled and air system stabilized air compressor came back on and air was cold again. This situation was repeated dozens of times over the summer. Sometimes I would cut air off with switch about 2-3 miles before stopping to park, sometimes air would come back on when car restarted after short stop.
