Icon6 A/C WOES!

The A/C on my 1994 V-TEC quits working when it's over 80 degrees UNLESS I can maintain speeds over 50 MPH. The unit is fully charged and I live in NC where it's been a rather steamy summer. Anyone got any idea what needs to happen here?

Re: A/C WOES!

Is your compressor kicking on....


80 degrees is nothing compared to 100-106 heat in Texas
Consider yourself lucky... Id die for 80 degree heat :)

Re: A/C WOES!

I said 80 degrees and above. We have had several 100+ days here in the last couple of weeks. :-< The compressor IS kicking on, but only slightly cools the air.

Re: A/C WOES!

It's fully Charge. Is there some kind of filter that needs to be changed?

No, because the testing gauge said it was fully charged
