2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo air stops blowing cool with ESS
Recently bought a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with the new Electronic Start-Stop (ESS) technology. I notice that when I'm at a stop and the engine shuts down with ESS, the air conditioning stops blowing cold air until I restart and begin driving again. Is this a normal function of ESS on Jeeps? Is the A/C chiller connected with the engine running? It's not bad in mild temps but when it's 90+ you can really tell when the chill goes out of the air when stopped. Thanks!
