No such thing as "just needs a charge". It's not supposed to leak out in the first place. A leak can be a major repair. I'm not sure what you mean by "the light goes off". What exactly is happening with the system. Is it getting cold, is the compressor frozen, are there any noises?

Hi, I don't have the history on the car as my grandson just boyght it. To answer your reply: The car is at normal operating temperature, the rpm is stable, I press the a/c button on the dash, the indicator light comes on (green), the a/c comes on for a few seconds, no noises noted, the indicator light goes off and the compressor kicks out. Thanks, MIKESR.

I believe that system uses a module with an RPM sensor on the compressor. Most of the time it means the clutch is slipping and the compressor is bad.
