Hey All,
My 07 AC (climatronic) works ok when driving at a consistent speed, however, in stop and go driving it never cools down. I have searched the forum and found plenty of post of similar issues but in all cases i have found that their aux fan is not kicking on. In my case, when i turn the AC on both fans (cooling and Aux) kick on at what appear to be a lower rate of speed than what other cars i have experienced run at. Any ideas, is this normal, should i expect it to run faster?

Replaced solenoid, fixed issue. There are YouTube videos out there that make this look like a difficult process that includes dismounting the compressor. Mine was easily exposed after removing the main splash shield under the motor. Took me less than 15 minutes to change it after the refrigerant was recovered.
