SOURCE: 2004 escalade ac problem
I had the same problem. Took it to an AC guy and they told me it was going to cost $1,400 to replace all kinds of parts. I didn't get it done right away because I went on vacation. When I got back from vacation the air blows cold. It hasn't gone back to blowing hot since.

the rear airconditioning uses a thermal expansion valve to control the amount of refrigerant evaporating into the rear evaporator, the front does not it uses a fixed orifice which cannot compensate for anything. what usually happens is that the refrigerant level is low and the rear expansion valve "steals" all of the available refrigerant.
I would recommend having the system evacuated and recharged by weight first(definetly the cheapest way to go). twice i had to replace the txv for the rear a/c because it was stuck open(in the last 10 years! ... not very common). also ther could be a door in the hvac system that is not covering the heater core. american automobile manufacturers usually heat up the heater core at all times and block the airflow when they don't need it, but air always flows through the a/c evaporator assembly(if the a/c is'nt on it's not cold). and last the cooling fan for the a/c system,and the cooling system on the car, is coupled to the engine by a viscous coupling that could have worn out(very unlikely). if that were the case you should have adequite cooling at speed, but warn up at a stop(also symptom of low charge) i hope that this information helps usual leak sources on gm are the compressors.
