GM ENVOY: My 2003 GMC Envoy's A/C system works great when first

Customer Question

My 2003 GMC Envoy's A/C system works great when first turned on. However, about 10-15 minutes later it shuts off. I replaced the accumulator last fall, and have checked the low pressure switch, including jumpering the switch. However, the compressor pump does not turn on. If I start the vehicle after a couple of hours, the A/C works again. Can you tell me what's going on?

At the dark green wire to the compressor clutch. With the engine running and the AC on. Please see attached diagrams..Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.
