I have a 2003 Chevy S-10. My problem is when I turn on the air conditioner it shuts the truck off. If I turn it on while I'm driving it will stay on but once I'm in idle it shuts off. Please help
Thanks.

it's possible that the compressor is putting too much of a load on your engine. It could be there is too much drag on the compressor or the idle control is bumping the idle up high enough or the throttle body could be coked up and the engine is stalling before the computer can bump the idle up.

hold the idle up to about 1500 rpm and then turn on the ac. how low does the rpm drop? or does it still kill the engine? If it still kills the engine there is probably to much drag from the compressor.
