Default Re: AC stalls engine when it cycles on

If you are having a problem with poor idle with the ac on, unplug the battery and hook it back up. If the coolant was changed with the ac service the ECU needs to be flashed. Asked the ford tech at school and he informed me of that one day...lol

That is complete horsefeathers. You do not need to disconnect the battery for that and you certainly do not need to have your ECU reflashed. That's absurd.
