My car starts to overheat only when I run my a/c.
as soon as I turn it off the temperature goes down
immediately. Could you please tell me what would cause this

Power the condenser fan from the battery if it comes on-check the fan relay/engine temperature sensor/switch-if both checks out-have the computer checked-
