Could be the idle air control valve either bad or dirty. It's job is to idle your vehicle up when ac and or other acc are being used. Try cleaning it first also clean throttle plate and throat of throttle body around the plate. Hope this helps.

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

When you switch on the A/C this sends an "a/c request" signal to the computer. The computer then increases the idle speed about 50 RPMs to compensate for the added load of the A/C compressor. This sequence of events will also happen when "defrost" is selected. Most likely, as the above poster said, the IAC (idle air control valve) is not responding. If cleaning it doesn't solve the problem replace it. They usually aren't too expensive. HTH. - Jim
