Sounds as if the compressor isn't coming on, try for a blown fuse or faulty relay ,check fuse box under dash and in the engine compartment, the amount of coolant does'nt actually have anything to do with air conditioning , that has a gas , freon, in the a/c system ,get this checked at a a/c repairer , do not attempt to do any thing to the a/c system as gas escape can be lethal !

How do I set the radio stations in a '99 Plymouth

Locate a station you want to save and push in one of the select buttons and hold it for some seconds (30 should be plenty) and look at the display during that time.
If the display blinks one or two times, it was probably saved.
Repeat with other stations and push-buttons.

This is one of the most common methods of storing a station.

Hyundai Elantra temperature goes up to HI when air is turned on

There is an electric fan that should come on with the AC and run whenever the AC is on,if it doesn't come on it will heat up very quickly. Sounds like a problem with that radiator mounted fan.
The fan is supposed to come on when the engine gets hot enough also.
If so, the AC should be ok at hiway speeds.But you need the fan to work.

I have 2 problems, the low coolant light comes on and the air conditioning blows warm, does it have a leak in air conditioner and where can I add coolant (what kind?); and the security light comes on and...

Low coolant is detected by a sensor inside the plastic resevoir tank. These things lie, so if the resevoir has plenty of coolant, it's probably a dirty or faulty sensor. If you can't see coolant, add it directly to the resevoir. As for the A/C, you can purchase an A/C pressure gauge or complete check and fill kit at a parts store and follow the directions for using it. If the pressure reads low, with the car running and A/C on full blast, add refrigerant until you hear the compressor turn on. Check your gauge again. Once you have it to pressure, you should be good to go. If it never gets there, you have problems. If it gets there and stops working again days later, you have a slow leak.

Ac was not cooling. Freon put in last sun. Seemed okay. Now no ac only blows. Control button only blinks but will not turn on

Let's just assume that your a/c system had no leaks, and the refrigerant (should be R134a and not freon) charge still complete. Automatic hvac controls uses push buttons instead of the manual rotary knobs. Once you push a button for a particular function, the corresponding light will indicate on. Normally the light should turn on steadily once requested and enabled. If that light is blinking, it is just telling that the function you requested is not yet available at the moment, even if you pressed it repeatedly. Why? It's because the engine control module (ECM) senses that some conditions are not yet in place and he wont allow it. Thats part of its programming: efficiency and protection as well. It will allow later when it senses evrythings okay. However if this blinking goes on all day, then you need to have your truck checked thoroughly, specially by scanner. Double check for leaks, too. Goodluck, and have a nice day. : )
