Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
That's not a good thing.... are you seeing the AC light flash at all?When it runs for 3 minutes, does the low side pipe (the larger diameter aluminum pipe) get cold during those 3 minutes?
Thanks, ***** ***** a good sign of possibly just a low charge condition.Do you have access to AC pressure gauges?
What are your high side and low side pressures while it is running?
Well the concern here is if the system is shutting down intentionally or not.
When the AC cuts off, do the outside fans stop too?
Hmm.If you let it idle for a bit?
If it continues to work OK and you want to close this for now just let me know.
No problem; if it returns we can pick back up.
If it is turning back on after 10-60 seconds that is OK... the compressor should cut off after anywhere from 10 seconds and up (depends on charge amount, temperature outside, etc).
If it is not turning back on, then we would suspect a thermistor issue (in the evap box), pressure sensor issue, or even worn out clutch magnet.We really would want to read the two sensor values on the scan tool to see what they are seeing, but you could also check for power at the clutch when it cuts out... if there is power there, then the magnet is bad.
Yeah, that sounds pretty unusual. I would check all your connectors particularly around the drivers kick panel ahead of the door etc for signs of corrosion or moisture in the wiring.
Sure, I'll need a few minutes.
