Cougar 2001 / AC and alternator
I have two problem and I don't know if they are related:
the AC sometimes does not work, the electrical clutch for the compressor does not engage. I have noticed a number of times that when this happens, either the battery is low because of defective alternator not charging the battery or the battery indicator comming on in the dash. The alternator has been chabged about a year ago (it was the original), then again 2 months ago (the bearings went) and then again 2 weeks ago. the battery indicator still comes on when I start the car but very fainted and then dissapears after a while. usually this happens at night after beineg parked all day. Maybe it also occurs when I start it in the morning, but the indicator is too low to be seen during the day.
Thanks for any help you can provide
