2010 Honda Civic Sedan. AC not working when I restart the car after driving for 10 or more minutes.

Asked by Jun 03, 2016 at 05:28 PM about the 2010 Honda Civic EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2010 Honda Civic Sedan. Problems with AC. The AC works fine when the
car is cold and when the car warms up. However if I shut the car down and
restart the car, the AC will not work until the car is cold again. The fan is
working and I assume the "freon" is ok or the AC would not work part of the
time. Any recommendations. It almost seems like some kind of vapor lock? I
did bring it to a certified Honda mechanic on 3 separate times for the issue
and still not working.

Start off by checking voltage at the compressor clutch, see if it's maintaining or losing it's 12v supply when the AC quits. If it still has 12v then the clutch coil is bad and the circuit is opening as the coil warms up from being in use.
