AC compressor is not staying engaged

Hello.
I found weird thing on my 2014 GC Limited (3.6 4wd).
AC compressor is not staying engaged even with manual AC is on.
Something like 5 sec working... 10 sec idle, 5 sec working.. 10 sec idle.

I have another car (2014 Chrysler 200) which has a exactly same engine.
It does not work like that.
If AC is on, AC compressor is always engaged.

I visited a dealer, but they said this is normal....
Is it possible?

Mine does it too. Very annoying when I notice it and I'd say no, it's not normal, but what to do?

Normal. Is you A/C cold?

Cycles on my WK with the 3.6.

Dare I say, it cycles on most modern cars...

Re: AC compressor is not staying engaged

If it's cycling on and off that fast and it bothers you it may be worthwhile to make sure you're not low on refrigerant.
