The compressor is locking up. If you don't turn the AC on and it still happens, the bearing is out and the compressor needs replaced. They do make a bypass for the compressor. Basically, it is just a pully that bolts in place of the compressor. If the bearing is bad, it doesn't matter if the compressor is hooked up it will still do the same thing.
