If there were no leaks, why did you have it recharged ?
If the system is low it will not build up enough pressure to activate the radiator fan.

We have a 2007 CX7 and the air conditioning is not working well on either recirc or outside air in low ambient temps. When idling at the lights the air con becomes worse. There is no belt sqeal, and I dont...

When you have a moment pop the bonnet and look for the air con compressor run by a automotive belt on the side of the engine. Get the engine running at idle and then get someone else to turn the air con on whilst you watch the compressor. As the system is turned on the compressor clutch should engage and the unit should start turning, if this isn't happening there isn't enough pressure in the system (leak or just low on pressure) Get to your local air con guy and they will pressure test for leaks. Air con system is run on pressure, so that is really the issue you need to rectify

Note:- Manufacturers put the air con rad infront of the engine rad so stones get to that first, check the condition of the front rad through your bumper

Air con fan works but no cool air the compressor doesn't appear to start

It may need regassing, air con runs out after a while as its 2005 it most likely needs to be regassed/refilled!

first you should have it tested for leaks....common problems are the condensor and evaporator, possible pump...but in the long run its costly just replacing parts, have it inspected.... hope this helped....GL
