It probably has the control transformer on it -- without the 24VAC from
that, your thermostat won't be able to pull in the relays that control
the compressor and air handler.
The actual AC breakers trip the AC too.

To be on the safe side ,I would recommend you call a certified
electrician. You could end up with one hell of a fire if your main
breaker is at fault. Electricity is one element you don't take chances
with. One error and you can loose a LIFETIME. Enough said.

If you had a 100 amp service, with 40 - 15 amp branches, and each
drawing 5 amps(well below their trip setpoints), 40 x 4 amps = 200
amps. The 100 main breaker seems like it's doing its job.
IMHO, get an electrican, and a load calc performed.
