Air conditioning

Asked by Aug 15, 2019 at 11:22 PM about the 2012 Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When at an idol with AC on it will stop
blowing cold air. To get it to come back
on I turn the AC off for about a minute
then turn it back on and all works well.
Is it just low of Freon. There is no
evidence of leaks.

1 Answer


This could be caused just by low refrigerant. If you haven't had the system recharged in a while, do it now. If you've maintained the system well, you probably have slow leaking seals that have dried out.
