Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you. I may need to ask questions to better assess the problem so I can help you better..You stated the A/C lines stay wet with A/C switch off? look to see if the A/C clutch is still engaged turning the compressor. If it is still turning with Switch off pull the A/C relay located in the fuse block under the hood.Let me know what is happening up to this point.
