NicoJones is an unknown quantity at this point
If anyone could help me I would appreciate it (new to this forum stuff). Anyway, I have a 98 528i with 63k miles on it. The a/c suddenly stopped blowing cold air while the car sits at idle. Once I start driving the car, or press that peddle, the cold air starts blowing again. I was wondering if the compressor might be bad(but the cold air does blow when I drive) or if it could be something else.

Thanks in advance

check to make sure that the auxillary fan is operating (the electric fan which u can see through the frt bumper) If not check fuses etc.

Nicojones: welcome to the forum.

In addition to DT's advise you may want to check the system pressure. Your system does work when engine is reved. Recharge?

Ok, I checked the fuses and fan and everything there works. I will check to see if it needs more of a charge and let you know. Could it be anything else?

Thanks again.
