Not much of an A/C guy. Make sure it's not low on gas, belts are tight, or try changing the relay. My '99 Camry was doing the same thing. A/C light would flash. Would only blow for a short time. Changed out relay, problem solved.

Also make sure the condenser fans is running with the A/Ci on. You might have a high pressure switch installed that will shut it down if head pressures get too high.

I have a '99 Accord EX-L, approx. 258K on speedo. This began a few months ago also; A/C working then, shuts off. Asked a mechanic about it and he looked at my control panel and pushed buttons; he said that the panel controller was no longer working. He advised to get a used one on ebay and simply replace it. I did and my A/C worked once again. The cost on ebay for a used unit was about $78.
