Hello. I have a 07 pt cruiser with a weird ac problem. When I first start the car weather idling or driving the a/c works great. The air come out of the vents at about 36 degrees. Nice and cold. I can drive the car as long as I want and the a/c will never stop working. But if I shut the car off and it sits for about 20 mins or so, when I restart the car and compressor will not turn back on. If I restart the car right away after driving it, I can hear the compressor engage the clutch and the air is cold, but if it sits for 20 mins or so and I start it back up, the compressor will not turn on and engage the clutch. The compressor was replaced a few months ago with a new unit, but I was having this problem before the compressor was replaced. The clutch on the compressor went, thats why I had it replaced. I just had the a/c system sucked down and recharged to proper levels to make sure the charge was good, but same problem. After the car sits for a few hours or is driven for awhile, then the a/c will turn back on.
Thank you very much for your help.
have the same problem?
