Question

Happens every time a/c is used. Been happening for years but only drive once a week. When the green light on a/c button is on, the a/c is cool but it shuts off on its own. The air still blows when light is off but it is warm air. Is there a switch that would fix this. My wife wants me to add a/c but that isn't it since been doing this for a long time and if was low in when it started then it would have been empty by now.

    What are the low & high side readings with a A/C manifold gauge set.

    Hasnt been done. I dont have that equipment and wasnt sure if it was needed.
    I have some mechanical skills but a/c is something I never
    tackled and wouldnt know how to use the gauge set . Could this be a switch or a relay?

    Without the low and high side readings when the compressor is engaged I can't help you.
    Or you can shoot parts at it.
