Question Asked: Air Conditioner Compressor Turns Off and On by Itself
October 20, 2009, 08:42 AM
I have a 2002 Chevrolet Malibu with recurring air conditioner problems. The air conditioner compressor shuts off by itself and comes back on by itself. My dealer first showed me a bulletin stating that cycling was normal to keep the unit from freezing. But I proved to them that was not applicable to my problem because it would occur when I first started the car during warm mornings here in Florida. Chevy replaced the controller, which helped briefly. But it's been getting worse again to the point where it very frequently turns off during hot weather and especially at lower fan speeds (though this also varies). Any suggestions?
