Information on air-conditioning compressor
The air-conditioning compressor

  1. Can switch off briefly to ensure sufficient engine cooling if the engine is operating under extreme load.
  2. Automatically switches off at temperatures below approx. 36 °F (2 °C) and cannot be switched on, even manually.
  3. Operates most effectively with the windows closed.
    If the vehicle has been in the sun for a long time, it is a good idea to ventilate the interior briefly with the windows open.
  4. Depending on the outside temperature and humidity, condensation can drip from the evaporator and form a pool under the vehicle.
    This is normal and not a sign of leakage.
