The Air conditioner won't let out cool air when out of motion. How do I solve this issue?

Asked by May 30, 2017 at 05:38 PM about the 2011 Ram 1500 SLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Ram 1500 year 2011 and the ac only works
when the car is in movement. When ever I stop at a
red light, the car will slowly start to throw out hot air.
It takes a while to come back and since it is getting
hot in Florida a good ac is necessary.

Did you check the cooling fan on condenser coil. While driving the coil is cooled but will quickly heat up when standing still. The cooling fan keeps air moving over the coil in front of your radiator.
