    Question Volt drop when compressor kicks in

    Hi, im sharing my video here of my OBD.
    Can someone tell me if the range of the voltage drop is normal once the compressor kicks in?

    There is a corresponding drop in rpm from the load thus reducing alternator output. Still a useable range for auto function and won't happen when driving or not idling

    Itís probably normal but I donít know much about this subject in particular. Back when my A/C worked well, it would run differently for a second like this. I got into an accident that wasnít my fault and insurance fixed the car. 6 months later I lost A/C. But it ran like this when it was OEM.
