Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Can I help with something today on your vehicle?
Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.
Unfortunately I am unable to place a call on this here myself but others see you have requested a call and may still call on this here.I can however continue here.
Have you checked for any fault codes in the climate control unit using a computer or fully compatible scan tool that can read all computers in your vehicle?
Let me know,thanks Pete
Have you checked the data signal from the evaporater temp sensor.I have seen this sensor fail and sends a false signal on what temp the evaporater is reading and causes no ac like you are seeing here.If this is or was already checked and found o.k. let me know.
Is there any freon in it now at all?
O.k.,if there is no freon in it then this isnt the temp sensor at fault.The temp sensor though is located up against the evaporater under the dash in the heater/ac box.
Does your scan tool have function capabilities to turn on the ac compressor to run it?
Here is the location of this sensor
Usually you have to manually run the ac compressor when filling it when it will not take the freon it needs.I have had to do this several times before.
You manually run the ac compressor with either a scan tool to command the ac compressor on or by jumping signals at the ac compressor relay to run it manually then fill as needed.

I am here.Looking for the relay location and will post back here shortly.
O.k.,on this model the relay is built into the control module.The control module is the climate control head on the dash.So there is no manual way to bypass it to allow the compressor to run.It has to be commanded on with a compatible scan tool to run the compressor then to add more freon.

O.k.,this is a fault with the outside temp sensor.It should be located in the front bumper trim as shown below.Make sure it is connected and that no wiring damage is found.If this sensor is sending a false signal it will cause no ac operation.If the wiring and connection is o.k. then the sensor needs replaced.
