A/C Cuts Out

So here is the problem....my truck's A/C cuts out with any throttle (like it would under WOT) and comes right back as soon as you let it coast. It did this with the Xtreme tune and also does it stock and with my tow tune. This tells me it has to be electrical, but don't know what to test....compressor clutch? Any suggestions would be appreciated! (I leave for a 3000 mile trip Thursday)

Pure *** guess, but maybe just check fuses ?

my ex's ac stopped on me today....
the rear was blowing, but not cold and front had no display....
pulled over and Mama looked at the book and said fuse 10 was ac clutch...
so without a spare, I swapped the 10 & 11 location fuses and it came back on !

Whew, 101 when we left the restaurant in Furt Wurrh would have made for a sweaty drive !!!


good luck....

I did check the fuses...all good there. Going to an A/C place today to have them put some gauges on it. I talked to an A/C guy I know and he believes that it is likely just a little low on refrigerant.

Did you get this fixed? Mine was also cutting out while driving, but it would cool a little while stopped. It ended up that my compressort clutch was a littel worn and was out of spec, so the clutch was slipping. I removed the clutch from teh compressor and took out a shim to tighten up the gap. It's doesn't slip anymore.
