RE: [DML] A/C cutting out

Yes, That's why it's called a cycling switch. It's trying to protect the
evaporator from freezing up and causing problems.

Thanks John. Sounds like that switch is either faulty or needs to be
adjusted. Would it be normal for the switch to just shut the compressor down
completely? Last week it was over 100 degrees. My A/C ran great for about 5
to 10 minutes of driving; after that, the compressor just shut down and
never came back on.
