Turns off? Like instantly? I would get that checked out. Sounds like an electrical problem that needs to be diagnosed.

I had the same problem here, I fix it by cleaning the throttle body With throttle body fluid cleaner It's best if a mechanic does it. My AC works even better. You should not paid more then 40- 60 bucks for this.
