2004 Nissan: work fine..highway speeds..slipping..the clutch…

I have a 2004 Nissan...
I have a 2004 Nissan 350Z.
The air conditioner seems to work fine when I am driving a highway speeds but does not cool well a idle. I thought that the cutch may be slipping. I checked it and it seems to work ok, however the clutch does disengage frequantly at idle and does stay off long enought that the air is not cold. Got any clues?

Hello I will help with your question please remember to click the ACCEPT when done I don't get paid unless you do

 

you should check to make sure the electric fan on the radiator is coming on when the ac is on . the ac needs to have that fan pulling air through the condenser and radiator so it can take the heat away from the freon also if there is no air flow the high side pressure will increase to the point where it will cycle the compressor off a lot . that would also explain why the ac gets cold when cruising because ram air coming through takes the heat out and allows the system to work normally

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
