Lately, mostly when the -Z- is hot from sitting in the sun, my air conditioner will not blow cool air when I first turn it on. This did not happen before.
After I drive for a short while, it will kick on.
It is an intermittent problem, however, it seems to be getting worse.
Have you had this problem? What might be causing it?
I'm having a similar problem, my air conditioner will cut out intermittently, ex. I was on the way to dinner last night with the A/C on and all the sudden the air got really hot, hotter than the outside ambient air. It happened this morning as well on the way to work. The A/C will work again on and off, but never for very long.
I had this problem today with my 04 with 35K. I hope there is an easy fix. When I turn my car on, it cools down really fast and the air is ice cold. But sometimes when im driving, it will stop blowing out of the vents. I play around with the fan speed **** and the **** you adjust to choose where to air should come out of and it usually fixes it. Could it be a bad connection someplace?
Mine is intermittent and seems to occur when hot and very VERY humid. A/C always kicks on when selected, then after a variable time it kicks off, air feels humid and ambient to slightly warmer. Note: a/c light stays on. One thing I've noticed is that if I have the temp set at 75 and it kicks off, it comes back on faster (sometimes immediately) if I raise the temp to 80. Of course, 80 w/out humidity is far better.
Anyhow, I figure something in the system is overloaded by dehumidifying gross amounts of Charleston SC air. I'm hoping one of the guys here have dealt with this and can share the fix. BTW, if the anwser is leave Charleston I think it's worth it....
same thing is happening to me... today driving to the gym, it would shut off.. then i would play with the ***** a bit turning them on/off.. defrost and so on.. then it would go back to normal.. i don't know if messing with the ***** did anything.. but yeah.. any solutions?

ur girlfriend's **** are awesome!
The air conditioning blows cold air when the car is idle. After driving for about 10 minutes it starts to blow warm air. If you stop and wait and wait for 10 minutes it will start to blow air cold air again. In the winter you will be able to use the air conditioner to defog the car without any problems it blows cold air to keep the car defogged.

I have been dealing with this problem since 6/2008. About 8 months ago, I took the -Z- to the Nissan dealer. They said it was a bad sensor that was located in the blower box and that it would cost me $600 for them to tear the dash apart and replace it.
I didn't believe them.
The A/C only blew cold air when the car was moving.
I finally figured it out . . . . one of the two radiator fans was not working. AND it turns out that this is a common problem, so much so, that Nissan warrants the fans for 86 months.
No my car did not run hot. The temperature gage indicated everything was fine.
Now that the problem is fixed, I cannot say I feel stupid for not diagnosing it earlier.....because the Nissan folks didn't either.
You might occasionally check and see if both your radiator fans are working.....before the Nissan extended warranty expires.
When the Service Manager and Tech told me it was a sensor in the blower box, I futilely searched for it in the Service Manual, with no success. I can just imagine what other disasters would have happened if I had let them take my whole dash apart.
