: Buddy and I discussed it and can only think of a thermal issue with one of the sensors feeding one
: of the computers, which then sets a kill function (survival mode?).
: Haven't heard back whether the AC still works, or if it does, does it still kill the engine?
: Any ideas?

Sorta off-the-wall, but it may be indicative of imminent A/C compressor failure. These are all serpentine belt systems, and my '89 would occasionally get cranky (or no-cranky, as the case may be) if an accessory was near to failure, or failed while in service. Had the alternator lock up when it failed once; locked down the whole motor.

The '95's should still be running TBI's, and there's just not that much to them. The ECM does know when the AC is running, and it might be trying something funny that way.

Also might see what the system voltage is when the AC is running... A clutch short might be pulling the system voltage down far enough to flake out the ECM...
