are you able to perform some basic checks if I instruct you ?

Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 3 months ago.

okay if you turn the A/C on with the engine running can you see that the A/C compressor clutch is " engaged "

I was told the control panel is not working
Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 3 months ago.

does the large A/C pipe at the firewall get cold when you run the engine with the A/C 'ON " ?

Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 3 months ago.

you need to check these things first , okay ?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
it does not get cold
Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 3 months ago.

then you have a "system " problem . The Large pipe MUST get Cold and will actually "sweat " ( cold water/moisture ) There are service ports for checking the A/C system . You need to connect a gauge set and see that with the A/C " ON " and the engine running that you have apprximately 15 - 20 PSI on the Blue gauge ( Low side ) and 150 - 225 PSI on the Red gauge ( High Side ) . You need to confirm this before you can go further in diagnosing the A/C problem .
