Problem with idle when air con is on

I have an 84 318i and when I turn the air conditioner on, the revs go down and it idles really low almost for the motor to go off. Does anyone have any ideas thanks.

Download the appropriate electrical troubleshooting manual (ETM) from this site:

Since I haven't driven an M10 equipped car in almost 20 years, I can't offer more specific advice. On the later E30s with M20 and M42 motors, the car's computer boosts the idle when it senses the AC compressor is on.

Good luck sorting it out,
