With the car running I push the A/C button and the car shuts off immediately.
Do you

Hi,

Does this only happen when at an idle? Does the A/C work when the vehicle is moving? Is there any noise associated with this when it happens?

I'm asking for a few reasons. If it's at idle only, the idle air control valve can be bad. If it happens at all times, the compressor could be locked up. However, I would think you would hear belt noise if that is the case.

Let me know.
Joe
