    Ok, so I was driving at about 50 mpg and was passing a truck and hit the accelerator hard. i don't think I redlined but I was up to 85-ish mpg. The air conditioning was on but then with the fan blowing the A/C turned off and the light on the A/C button started blinking. Air was still blowing but it was warm since it also stopped recycling the air.

    I pushed the A/C button but nothing happened, kept blinking. So then I turned the fan speed all the way down to turn the whole system off and then back on and everything was fine.

    It was weird must have either turned the A/C off to put more power to the drive train or maybe the serpentine belt slipped. Its working fine but it was weird and hasn't happened before.

    Anybody else ever experience this?

    yep bank account is running low from it..
    If the rpms are above a speed (5500rpm example) the a/c should disengage.. that keeps the compressor from over driving and blowing out seals from too much pressure from too much rpms.

    Good to know. Thanks. I guess I'm surprised that I haven't rev'd it up that high before.

    I don't know what the ratio is, if it's one to one, on the compressor to crankshaft but 6000rpms is alot of flying metal in a small place.. then add oil and gas (freon) in the mix.
