Toyota Camry vibrates when A/C is turned on

Hello. I shipped my 1996 Camry from Los angeles to FL. After I drove car for 10 miles, steering wheel started vibrating. Prior to shipping, my car never vibrated. Then steering wheel and driver seat feel a definite vibration - very annoying. A/C works fine. I had it on lowest intensity.

When I turned A/C, no vibration any where. Question: Is is possible, that during transport of car, something in car
became loose due to car rocking back in forth in car carrier - you know like the ones new cars are shipped in.
Why would it vibrate now when it never did before move? Any correlation? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you. mary

Sounds like your motor is idling too low.

When A/C is selected, it sends a signal to them modules to increase RPM slightly.

Also, a motor mount might have broke during shipment causing your engine/tranny to bounce.

Sorry for the vague answer, I will try and dig up some info later.
