Question about 2003 Toyota ECHO
Does it need freon
You can buy an inexpensive fill kit with a gauge on it. It hooks to the "LOW" pressure side of the system (grey cap near the dash on the passenger side) if you look just about where the fender well is under the hood, you can see another smaller grey cap. This is the high side. There is a little window there that if you see bubbles in it, it needs Freon. Hope this helps.

I just fixed mine. My compressor clutch would not engage. The fuse under the dash checked as ok and the freon was fully charged. My compressor clutch wasn't froze, it just wouldn't come on. If this is the case for you, there is a fuse box under your hood, which contains an A/C relay switch. it is the first rectangular block to the left (looking towards your windshield). Mine was white in color. It's about 1" by 1/2" rectangular shape.
Autozone had this part in stock and it cost $27.99 . It was black in color...

I had the same problem with my '03 corolla. If your freon is ok, your fuse under dash is ok but your clutch is not engaging... My culprit was a $27.99 A/C Relay switch, located in the fuse box under the hood. It was either that, or paying $75 just to have it diagnosed, then $x to repair.

A lot of your local parts stores sale a hand held device that you pull the trigger on with it hooked to you ac line and it will tell you if it is low or ok or over charged. It comes with a can of R134 and I think it was around $40 but it is well worth it so you don't over fill andlock up your AC pump
