a/c problem

Has anyone had this problem, when switch on a/c the idle speed does not go up, and when at lights on a 35degree day, temp rises and car gets to hot a/c compressor shuts down.

Re: a/c problem

Sounds like idle speed control is sticking or not working ???
Sounds like an old g/f ....

Re: a/c problem

Put it into diagnostic mode and see if the motor revs up to around 2000 rpm, if it doesn't then there is a problem with the idle air control.

Re: a/c problem

Yeh i am goin to do a few tests, but i beleieve it might be the isc soleniod, as when i switch a/c on the revs dont rise, when i believe they should, so in turn is causing the ac compressor not to work correctly not pumping the gas through correctly,
any info would be helpful.

Re: a/c problem

If you turn the steering wheel at idle do the revs pick up? If not that could be another indication that the ISC is the problem.
