    The AC switches off while driving. Push the button for it to stay on for 3 seconds. Anyone experienced this?

    Do you need to know, or care?
    Welcome to TW.

    Not sure what the problem is, do you mean it shuts off by itself after 3 seconds of driving? What temp do you have it set at? Is defrost on?

    The a/c will be blowing cold air. Then the AC switch light goes off and the cold air becomes warm. I push the switch and ac stays on for 3 seconds. Goes off and repeat.

    Have you tried turning the set temp down?

    Edit: Another question, do you have the manual or automatic system?

    Sounds like a dealer visit. Good luck and let us know the outcome. Sharing around here helps us all. Sorry couldn't help further, but there seems to be no reason for your problem.

    I have a different issue.

    When I turn everything off, it continues to blow air. Room temp, but continues to blow. I just close the vents but then it makes the noise of air blowing through closed vents. It’s annoying, but I have been living with it for a year +.

    Anyone else?

    Turn it on recirculation to stop the air through the vents.

    All weak moderators leave the room, you know who you are.
    Also check to see if you turned the dial all the way to the left for " max air" that will keep it going as well.
