    Hi, I have a 95 civic DX with 120k. I just had the a/c recharged by a
    reputable mechanic. The compressor now cycles on/off every 30-45 seconds
    regardless of outside temp. The condensor fan cycles along with the
    compressor. The mechanic is very certain that he got the recharge
    pressures correct. What else would cause this cycling problem. BTW, it
    is cooling, but about the time it gets nice and cool the compressor cycles
    off and it warms.
    Thanks for any info you can give me!!

    If it starts to 'warm' higher than the outside air, your heater isn't
    shutting off completely.

    I think all air conditioners will 'take a break' to prevent icing. You
    didn't mention the outside conditions . . ie: humidity / temp.

    Search in this group for many previous posts on same topic.
