That was constructive Diseasel300, thanks.

In that case I may just keep it: I don't need it, but do enjoy it tremendously. May also commute with it to save miles on my main car.

AC not working when most needed - 1991 W126

The AC will not switch on seemingly when it's very hot and/or humid outside. Are there any typical causes on the W126?

(The condenser was replaced recently, if it matters.)
