Re: [DML] RPM Drop When turning on AC



On the properly working K-Jet it should not drop at all. The idle control 
module should keep the RPM constant regardless of load (to a certain point).
On Megasquirt you should have the A/C compressor connected to the ECU and it 
should bump the RPM up by about 200 rpm with the compressor running.

Are you sure the rpm are dropping? It might be just the tach gauge. When the 
A/C is running, both cooling fans are running with it. That causes a voltage 
drop and when the connections are not clean and perfect will cause a 
significant drop in the instrument cluster. With lower voltage the gauge 
might show strange things.... lower, higher, jumping around. So, make sure 
the rpm are really dropping before you start tearing things apart.
