09 Vibe 2.4L died with A/C

Post by pwyu1969 »

I have a vibe with 2.4L automatic. I ran over something pretty solid that hit something underneath solidly. Afterwards the car won’t run when the A/C is on. It kinda starts up then dies right away. Runs fine with A/C off, but it’s getting warm out. Any ideas?

Something hit the compressor and it can no long spin when the clutch engages. If so, you need a new compressor.

Have you lain down and looked underneath? There may be some other damage too that would be good to know about.
