Sounds like a loose connection where the blower motor plugs into the wiring harness.....but that's just my guess.

Could be that or bad brushes in the blower motor. I'm afraid I am going to have to clean mine - occasionally I have to slap the underside of the passenger side dash to get it to start. It started this summer and has done it 2 or 3 times.

It's a bit of a drive for you, but Smart Center Germantown's service department is top notch.

Thanks for the replies, I never new that the defroster turned on the AC automatically. In my situation the position is set at torso or feet though so may it thinks the cabin is too hot like someone suggested based of the cabin sensor.

The other thing I was thinking is I tend to drive with the top down and the heat on... winters and California get down to 50 sometimes and the heater still does the same cycling which makes me think it isn't the in cabin eye trying to regulate it
