Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am HVAC Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly. What wires are to what terminals and did you blow the low voltage fuse on the board?

HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 1 year ago
Ok you should have 24 volts AC fro the T-Brown wire to the R-Red wire...do you have that?
Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The T wire does not have a place labeled on the new board. Can I connect them to same terminal on the board?
HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 1 year ago
No connect it to the C connection and it then should work

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I reset the circuit breakers in the panel, and the one outside in the condenser unit, to no avail
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i would like to emphasize that I just need the AC to work and not the heating system. I live in florida. We do not use the Heater. Is this even possible?
HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 1 year ago
Yes you may have blown the low voltage fuse on the airhandler when switching the wires to the new thermostat. You will have to see if you blew the fuse or see if you actually have 24 volts to the thermostat with a volt meter otherwise this will be a futile effort.
Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
if i ask where can i find and replace this fuse, is it misplaced in this conversation?
HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 1 year ago
There should be an inline fuse to the board at the airhandler, it really depends on the exact system you have bit most have one.
Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I apologize for taking a while to respond. I am looking at the air handler, and I see a few odd shaped terminals. I am not sure what the fuses look like or which on I am looking at in particular.

i do not beleive there is a board such as that, on this air handler. this appears to be very old. I might not be able to figure this out.
HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 1 year ago
Can you see if you have 24 volts at your board with a volt meter?
