gas leak compresor valve

Year: 2006
Make: mitsubishi
Model: outlander
Engine Size: 4cyl
Country of Origin: Puerto Rico

I have a outlander is that once the gas pressure is verified and are performed all tests(ok) by a technician, at the end of several weeks at a given moment the gas comes out with lot of pressure valve of the compressor without apparent reason. Once has this problem the next day dawns truck battery no load. I am in the need of keeping off the a/c so stop throwing away the gas and therefore does not affect me the battery charge. I have taken him to several A/C technicians and they perform after completing the gas all the tests at the time and do not detect anything abnormal in the system. I ask. To that might be the problem? Can the blower system cause this? Thank, Jose.

It sounds like the compressor relay is getting stuck.

Running the compressor without the condenser fans will cause overpressure that usually opens the relief valve. The valve is there for such desperate situations because otherwise a hose or something else will blow out with more force.

Then when you park the truck with the relay still stuck, having the compressor coil stay energized with the engine not running drains the battery.

ok'll change the relay who are associated with the a / c, gas checking the system and see if it happens again. Thank you!!!
