Default A/C Problem

Hello
In recent days I have an air conditioning problem.
I did recharge the air conditioner in my 2L on 20 July, all was well.
But last week my wife realized that there was a worry.
The air conditioning works properly at times then not cooled , and again it works properly etc ....
I returned today where I did reload, to see if there was no leak , no loss result , the compressor is activated correctly , ...
They assume that it would come to an electrical problem

Any ideas ???

Make sure the fan is working on both speeds and it comes on as soon as you turn on the A/C.

The non-turbo PT has a two speed fan and both speeds have to work properly for the A/C to function properly. The Turbo models have a variable speed fan and should be on high when the a/c is on.

NOTE: If the AC cools while at highway speed and not at stop light s it could be the cooling fan

If the condenser fan does not come on when you turn the AC to on it could be the low pressure switch on the dryer. easy enough to check, just jumper the two pins in the harness .

Before my A/C problem, when I was switching the " knob switch " like the picture


The fan was going ON and OFF automatically,
But since I have my problem he is always going ON,

( I know, on this position, the A/C start .)

Dude, that is for the defrost setting to clear your windshield. Turn it counter clockwise to the figure at the bottom left.
