Mercedes turns off when A/C turns on while engine is hot
Good evening to all,
Hope everyone is doing OK. My problem is the following: when I drive my 1996 C280 on the highway, A/C works flawless and the engine temperature stays at 80°, but when I drive in the city I have to turn off the A/C because the temperature rises to above 110° with the A/C on or the car turns off whenever I stop at a red traffic light with the A/C on
What I've done so far:
1. Changed the thermostat.
2. Made sure the auxiliary fans and the main motor fan working properly.
3. Checked any burnt out fuses. All OK.
Don't know what else to check for. Please advise.
