    Hi Folks,

    Can any one help or suggest a cure for the problem my mate has with his car. it appears that whenever he switches on his air con his car starts to die and eventually stops all together, when switched off no problems occur whatsoever.

    has anyone had this problem and know how its fixed, any info would be great.

    cheers

    does reving it keep it running? It could be the compressor, it could be seized or partially. Its fine when off but when the electronic clutch is released its too much strain on the engine?
