    I have noticed that my AC compressor seems to cycle off and on a lot. I understand why it would do it if I had the auto climate control on. But, it does it when I have all the climate controls in the off position or when I have it on full heat. Does anyone else notice this with theirs? Any ideas why this does it? How to fix it? Seems like I could be losing MPG and wearing the compressor. Thanks

    I pulled the relay today and put a known good relay in. The compressor turns on almost immediately when I turn on the heater control. It has been nice so I have been driving with the windows open and the unit off. My MPG has increased by more than 1 mile per gallon. any ideas?
