Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. The most common cause of this would be incorrect freon level. The freon going into the AC system needs to be measured using an AC machine with a scale. If you just put freon in with a can, you dont know how much freon is in the system because it was not evacuated and measured out. This needs to be done properly in order for the AC system to work correctly. Now, if the froen level is in fact correct, then using a scanner, check for the A/C request parameter to say YES in Engine Control Module data when the A/C is turned on. If so, check for the A/C pressure sensor voltage to drop or rise substantially when the A/C stops working. If it does, wiggle the A/C pressure sensor connector while watching the scan tool data. If you see a voltage change, check the sensor terminals and sensor harness for chafing preventing the AC from working
