Question 06 Touring AC ?

I looked it up but just had a general question.
My AC completely stopped working a few days ago. After looking into it on line and many wonderful responses on this site I did the LPS paperclip test and got cold air. After some more reading I thought of other symptoms I was experiencing. I experienced the no AC and rough idle while stopped and no air flow from the interior vents if the AC ran for a while.
So here is the beginning of my question, with the paperclip in place I never notice the idle issue. I'm not leaving it like that long enough to worry about the airflow issue at this point. When I put the LPS back in the loop I was still getting some cool air but the idle issue seemed to return. The high speed fan was running so I don't think its the fan issue yet. I have not checked the refrigerant yet but will probably later today. So the question is could a defective LPS cause the idle issue and is there anything other than low refrigerant that can cause the LPS to open up?

YES. Replace the LPS also known as the cycling switch. Be careful of the small O ring at the bottom of the switch when replacing it.
