My compressor on my 2002 Suburban keeps cutting on and off. Is it time for a new one or is there a switch that I can replace?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I tried to recharge the system because its blowing hot air, but it wouldnt let me.  When I attached the can to the hose the compressor kept shutting on and off.  Is it time to change the compressor?

Not necessarily, what are the high and low pressure readings on your system?
