Air Conditioning problem
1999 Jeep Cherokee 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 174000 miles
I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport with 174K miles on it. I recently had the AC recharged. When I turn on the AC a squeal starts up AND the RPMs on the tachometer drop and the battery charge indicator (which always shows straight up balanced between losing and charging) drops considerably. The vehicle also loses power. The force of the AC blower seems to decrease too. If I turn off the AC, the problem goes away. It does not ALWAYS do this when I turn on the AC but it does it 9 times out of 10 - enough that I am afraid to run the AC for fear of being stranded somewhere. Any ideas what the problem is? Thank you in advance for your help.
have the same problem?
