Is the check engine light on?
Is the radiator fans running?

It is the engine coolant temperature or is it the outside air temperature?

The check engine soon light is on and is the engine coolant temperature. If the temperature is below 50 degrees everything is alright. Like yesterday it was 94 degrees and it had dashes all day long with no a/c.I really don't know if the radiator fans are running or not.

 

Thanks

First we need to see what codes are setting in the computer. The code is what is disabling the a/c. Most auto part stores will check the codes for free. Stop by and get the codes read and let me know the code # XXXXX has set and we can go from there.
