When I turn my air conditioner on it runs for a little bit then there's a sound like a vent is closing on the inside then it blows hot air.

There is a heater control valve under the hood, IF this valve is not stopping the flow of HOT coolant from entering the hvac unit, that will cause this problem! Located in the heater hose near firewall.

probably the heater wire is making contact and causing the heater to come on.
