AC is Not Playing Nice.

Supposedly when I bought my car the dealership recharged AC, did not work so they replaced the unit. Since I live in WA, haven't had to use AC, and now it's not working. I do not see anything leaking, no check engine lights but it just will not get cool whatsoever.

I cannot afford an inspection from my dealership it is about $40. For now I will suffer unless it's something cheap, got any ideas so I can at least open the hood and find some clues myself?

When did you buy your car? I would think the work would still be under some sort of warranty, unless a lot of time has elapsed.

Is your fan still blowing when you turn the switch?

Your refrigerant may have leaked out, preventing the AC clutch from engaging, but I would start by checking fuses. If you go to your under hood fuse block, you'll see an AC Clutch fuse and an AC relay. Check the fuse. It's a 10A.

Yes, sir the fan works and heats up very well.

Don't think it's under warranty anymore : ( bought it August of last year. That's a great diagram will have to check it out.
