[DML] Re: Air Condition at Highway Speeds

There could be several reasons you are not cycling:
Too much freon
incorrectly set low pressure switch
not enough airflow or blocked condensor coil
not enough airflow or blocked evaporator coil
Head pressure too high (either too much freon again or air in the system).
A contaminated system with a plugged orifice tube. 
The place to start is to get a set of gauges on the car and see what
the pressures are. You can also clean the coils (a good idea in any
case) and the A/C should stop when you pull the plug off the low
pressure switch. This confirms that at least the wiring is correct to
the switch. It is important that the system cycles. This is the way it
keeps from frosting the evap coil.
