Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. This sounds exactly like a thermal switch protection for the compressor. If it starts to overheat it will shutoff under high demand
Im not sure its failing. I think its protecting itself from being overheated. That being said, the compressor maybe on its way out.
I will opt out and let another tech jump in and see if they might have another thought about this issue.
Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!

If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail.
A scan test is needed on the climate control module to see why the compressor shut off. there are 22 parameters where the control module will shut it off from preventing damage to the system.
right now you have verified the shut offf but why and too many possibilities. where a scan test will narrow down the area to test and diagnose!!
too many possibilities at this time . scan and let me know!!
