S40 climate control issue - cycles on & off
 
I bought a 2003 Volvo S40 a couple years ago with about 85K miles on it. With the exception of a few typical door dings it's in really nice shape.

Almost as soon as we got it we started to notice an issue with the auto climate control. The A/C would cycle on & off (especially in around-town driving), but would work when switched to manual control. It only happened intermittently at first.

Now, it won't run on auto at all, and most of the time the A/C won't stay on even in manual mode. I really wonder if it's a switch issue, but I'm not sure where to start diagnosing the issue (short of taking it to the dealer). I checked the freon pressure and it's fine, reading right where it should. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Don Zielke

I'd check to make sure the coolant is full. May need to take to a service center. But if the freon/R12 is low I think it may cause the a/c to not run.
