Toyota has issued a service bulletin that corrects this problem, under the hood near the battery locate the fuse/relay block and remove the cover, look inside the cover to identify the "A/C magnetic clutch relay" remove it and check the part number imprinted on it, the defective relay will have the part number 90987-02022, the relay should be replaced with the part number 90987-02028.

I was driving on a rainy day and it happened when I drove through a puddle that splashed water up into the engine compartment. I figure the belt slipped and the compressor couldn't do its job. I shut it off then back on and it's fine.

I changed the relay and changed out cabin filter but blinking light is still there. Any other things I need to check?
