Is it a constant shaking or you just feel it for a few seconds when you first turn the heat/ac on?

I have the same car and it shakes for a few seconds when the ac kicks in, never thought of it as a problem since everything works fine.

Is the shaking due to a low idle speed?

Either a weak alternator or motor mounts.

What is it idleing at when their on? And guessing the alternator because right before my alternator went out if i only turned on my head lights it would cause my car to shake and ac heater same thing. I'm not sure how it would cause it but when i replaced mine after a while it stopped it.


Put a jack under your engine and jack it up from the oil pan and see if the motor moves up a lot or just a little. if theirs a ripped mount it will lift a good 4 inchs.

Does the shaking happen only when the A/C is running or also when just the blower is running? If it only happens with the A/C running, then remove the A/C belt to see if the shaking stops.

it looks like its the alternator. i had the same problem until i put a new alternator i found out that my baring was shot in the alternator. some time they go bad but if you have a chance take the belt off the alternator and try spinning it. if its hard to turn it its shot. hope this helps

i have this same problem with my 2007 honda fit sport. i was wondering if that could be the only reason that its doing that. i put my subs back in the car because my wife wanted to hear the subs again, so i did. then 2 weeks later, it started doing this? could it be the subs, alternator, belt or could it be the same problem that you had?
