You didnt say if you have rear a/c or dual temp controls but if the line is cold and the pressures are fine all that is left is the temp actuator or a problem with the temp blend door.

Have rear a/c, no dual controls
Expert:  frank replied 7 years ago.
Is the rear a/c working and will the compressor come on when you turn the switch on and the switch illuminate
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It was blowing warm air in the back also, the switch will light up and stay on when switched to it. the compressor will come also.
Expert:  frank replied 7 years ago.
Since the front and rear a/c are controled sepertly double check the lines under the truck in the right rear-remember pressures and temp are about the same-it should feel about 35 degrees.It would be strainge for both front and rear to malfuction at the same time unless the compressor has a problem and both the orifice tube and expansion valve are not plugged.Do you know what the pressures are?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
the pressuire is about 35 when the compressor comes on. Not sure about the high side.
Expert:  frank replied 7 years ago.
The compressure runs-you did add the proper amount of freon for a dual ststem which is more then a single system-the low side line at the front and rear evaporators feel cold?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
there is a rear evaperator?
Expert:  frank replied 7 years ago.
If you have rear a/c there is a rear evaporate-you said you has rear a/c-the lines are under the right side rear ward of the rr tire.
