Check for a blown fuse or a bad relay for the compressor clutch. The clutch electrical winding may be open. When the A/C is switched on, the radiator fan should come on even if the engine is cold. If the clutch latches on and drives the compressor, then the freon charge may have leaked away from a bad compressor seal, or other hole in the system.
It doesn't sound good, does it. I honestly couldn't tell you, but he should have checked the fuses, resistors, and your blower motor before he told you that one. If he didn't, go elsewhere. What you should do is get a Hayne's repair manual, and check it out. Or, get a test light, and do some checking. First check the fuse and see if there is power to the blower motor. If there is, then check the resistors, and if they are okay, then the blower motor itself is no good, and will need to be replaced.
Going to a mechanic is just like going to the doctor. It's always good to do your homework before you go so that the doctor and his best friend at the drugstore don't get too many free trips to Hawaii.
I really think a repair manual would help you.
I ad this problem fixed and it cost $35. Apparently, this happens when the Freon level is low for some reason. They refilled the Freon and now I have AC on both sides. Don't forget to replace the internal filter in the glove box.
Sounds like intake air system, look for cracks in hoses (possible intake manifold gasket) all vacuum hoses and connections. Make sure TPS and all filters are clean. Sounds like a lean mixture/flooding issue. Common problems with FWD is the Air Intake Hose, lots of flexing. Cracks form on the bottom and debris comes off inside over time(thus fouling the TPS downstream). Remove inspect carefully, If it is hooped you can fab one up yourself with PVC and some clamps and Aluminium Dryer Ducting. With the proper alignment and bigger airways you will boost your performance. The TPS can be cleaned with Carb Cleaner, replace the air filter and then test with a Vacuum Pressure Gauge install in line, directly off a Intake Manifold Vacuum port.
