Highly possible that A C compressor clutch coil is shorting or compressor could be attempting to lock up. Have a technician run ac test pressures / also ohms read coil on AC compressor that engages clutch on AC unit, last have tech read available voltage on vehicle, to ECM with A C is switched on. Sounds like idle air control fail also
