In the last 4 months my AC has stopped working twice.
I live in Austin, TX were it can become very hot and both time the AC has gone out was after being out in the sun for a long bit of time. It works just fine the rest of the time.
I keep my car in a garage so it is kept in the shade and most work days my car is in the shade in the late afternoon for a few hours before I drive home.
That seems to be the difference, when the car is kept somewhat cool and shaded, no issue with the AC, when the car get's heated up by the sun, the AC stops working.
I went to a shop and they said that my compressor was going, but that does not sound right to me. If the compressor was going, wouldn't it just stop working all together?
