When outside temp is in high 80s the AC stops blowing cold air after 10 - 15 mins. After turning the car off and then back on the AC will work again for a little while.
I have a 2007 V50, and have had a problem with the AC for over a year. I live in Texas and it is hot. the A/C starts off cold but as I drive over 15-20 minutes the air gets hot. if I turn the unit off or stop driving and re-enter the car the air will blow cold again for a while then it will start blowing hot air.
Ambient temp sensor (on driver's side mirror??) not properly assessing heat, repeats incorrectly on dash and affects automatic AC
