I had a similar problem and it was the switch. Before putting in a new one, however, I would check the fuses. They can be located under the dash on the driver's side by the hood release and also under the hood on the driver's side. If after checking the fuses I would try the switch.
Actually, mine would work on other speeds but not the one I needed. Does yours work on any speed? If not, then a fuse is more likely.

Several things ... best guess, in order: 1. (very likely) Radiator fan is not blowing (turn on car and a/conditioner. When compressor kicks in, the radiator fan must blow). If it ims not blowing, the radiator fan motor may be burned out ($40). 2. Check / replace "cooling fan" fuse ($1) and / or "cooling fan" relay switch ($7). 3. Radiator clog (possible) Hope this helps!
It could be a number of things. Check to see if the clutch is turning on the compressor. If it keeps turning on and off (cycling) it is low on freon. Is the condenser clean and free of bugs and road debris? Is the radiator fan coming on? If not that could explain why it is cold while driving, but hot while idling. Most all vehicles will blow colder on the AC when driving down the road because you are getting cooler air through the condenser. Hooking up a set of gauges to the vehicle will tell you best what is going on. Basic rule of thumb is: low side should be in the 30-40 lb range while running and the high side should be around 100 lbs higher than the ambient air temperature. Anything drastically different means you have a problem.
Your AC is low on refrigerant; The AC compressor needs a minimum amount of regrigerant to run. If and when it does run (while low on refrigerant) the air coming out of the vents will not be cold. The refrigerant you require is R-134A and is available over the counter but if you are the least bit unsure as to how to add refrigerant, taking it to a garage that does AC recharging would be your best play. If you want to try to add refrigerant on your own you will need the following, 1LB can of R-134A, an AC hose adapter to deliver the refrigerant, and preferably an AC pressure guage to ensure you are not overfilling the AC line which will damage the system.

The problem could be the torque converter itself or the sensor circuit for the clutch.
Best to have a Transmission Expert look at it to see if any further damage has occurred.
