I just recetly bought this car. I live in Alabama so even in Feburary soometime I need to run the a/c. The problem is that when I turn on the a/c switch on the climate control panel, the compressor turn on for 2 or 3 seconds and then cycles off then about 6 seconds later it turns on for 2 or 3 seconds and cuts off. This will repeat for as long as the a/c is on. During the on cycle it gets cold and actually if you are driving a long distance at highway speed it keep sthe interior cool.
I figured that it was a little low on freon so I bought one of those top off cans with the guage and it says that the freon is full (green zone). Could a faulty low pressure switch cause this problem? Does my vehicle have a low pressure switch? (I have inquired at a number of local part shops and no one shows a low pressure switch for my car.
Any comments would be appreciated.
