Re: A/C compressot speed...

Check for faulty AC compressor relay.  Also the relay *socket* can go bad.
This happened to my '89 200tq.  A wire jumper between the socket positions
for the two active pins of the relay should give you useful information.  I
ran my car for > 1 year with such a jumper with an in-line manual on/off
switch so that I could be the relay in charge.  It worked fine.  Now that
the socket has been repaired it works even better.
