Air Conditioner Problem

Hello, I'm a newbie here.

I have a 2005 LT, when I come to a stop with the ac on my car wants to stall. It will even do it when backing up. Does anyone else have this issue? I'd love to hear what the problem is. Auto zone told me it was the battery but I bought a new one and it still does it.
Thanks.

Does the belt scream when that happens?

Sounds like the Pulley that runs the AC compressor is starting to seize

I have the same issue when at low speeds. I believe it has something to do with the AC pump. To be honest I just turn it off if I get stuck in stop and go traffic, otherwise it doesn't create any problems. I dont drive it enough to need AC so hopefully someone else has a solution for you if it's bothersome.

It sounds like the bearings could be going out on your pulley, but no belt noise is strange if its that. I'll do some searching

Or you just need to clean your throttle body.
