I guess I will thrown another 2012 AC isssue in. No recirc issues but I don't use that much. 1600 miles on it and I have only noticed it happened twice. It is always in the face position. The first time it happened it was hot and I had just gotten in the car. Second time we had been in the car for a while. When it run AC is way cold so I doubt it is a pressure issue.

2012 Sport manual trans, manual climate control.

A/C cuts out on really hot days for a couple seconds then kicks back in. It has never done it on cool days. Always when I go to lunch during the hottest part of the day. Like clockwork. I would say mine has cut out ~20-30 times so far. It has not failed yet though. A/C on high, fan speed doesn't matter, floor, face blend doesn't matter. Duration of cutout is always the same, and the time it takes from my works drive way to when it cuts out is always the same position on the road. I feel like it's a sensor or something tripping out the A/C then resetting.

2012 Rubi with manual trans and auto climate control.

Same has happened to me on numerous occasions. Cuts out, few seconds of silence, then blasts back on.

Very odd.

I'm gonna check this out next time I go for a drive, but I think the a/c cuts out when the doors are opened. It would make sense to have it cut off when the doors are ajar, then turn back on when they shut, But mine does it too. I have a 2013 rubicon with 2000 miles on it and I noticed that the ac cuts out, the last time was when my wife got into the jeep, as soon as she opened the door the a/c cut off then turned back on.... Any inputmon this would be great! Thanks

I am also having the A/C blower motor cutting out problem with my 2012 Rubicon. Has anyone had luck getting a dealer to fix it, my dealer says they have never heard of it and that no one at Chrysler tech help knows how to fix it.

2012 JKUR auto, auto climate. Mine has done this also. One occasion it shut out for probably 5 minutes. Every time it happens it's been real hot outside. I'm taking mine in shortly for it's 3rd oil change. I have a VERY good relationship with the dealership and can get straight answers from the tech (my wife works there doing their payroll ) So I am going to ask about this issue.

Unrelated but one day this week I got in (coldest day since I've owned this Jeep. 47deg) and the rear locker light on the dash started blinking. Thought maybe I bumped the switch on entering the Jeep. Hit the switch several times on my way into work but it never stopped blinking. Hasn't done it since then though. I'm asking about this too.

Kinda strange. After posting to this I had to run into town. AC on, Rec on, fan on about 3/4, outside temp about 70deg, engine cold. Pulled out of the drive and went about 100 yds. AC shut off for about 5 sec then back on. First time I remember it doing it in cooler weather.

Just found this thread. Same issue here. 2012 JKU Sport auto trans manual settings. A/C completely shuts down for 3 to 5 sec. then comes back on with force. It's happened a handful of times. Bought new July 20th. Haven't contacted the dealer. Was gonna bring it up at service time.

Is just the AC shutting down (IE, the light for AC goes off) or is the whole HVAC system shutting off and on?

I don't remember if the light for the A/C goes off or not, but the fan shuts completely off. It's only done it a couple times when it's 100 plus outside. Doubt we'll see those temps again this year, but I'll pay closer attention to it.

Same Problem

Same problem with my 2012 Wrangler Sahara. AC fan will cut off for about 3-5 seconds then it will come back on.

However, I have an additional problem. The AC blower fan gets a tick to it that reminds you of a playing card hitting bicycle spokes. It doesn't do it all the time, but when it does it's very aggravating and the dealer says they no nothing about any other problems.

same problem

We have a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Freedom Edition. I noticed the air cut out, just as most of you described, a few weeks ago and my wife has mentioned that it happened twice more. Really don't want to wait to let the dealership know, but really don't want to deal with the hassle if it's nothing. I was hoping something would be figured out before I take it in.

The A/C clutch may cycle, depending upon the ambient temperature and humidity. I would be concerned if it was rapid cycling (ten or more cycles per minute), but it doesn't sound like it in this case.

To get some peace of mind, you might want to go to - or at least - call your dealer.
