Check for bad connection at heater resistor or try tapping heater motor lightly
with ignition switch on and heater switch on. Could be heater switch connection.

Check to see if you have power at the electrical connector on the compressor. If power is there, check the ground on that connector. If both are good, the compressor or it's clutch is bad. If no power is found at the compressor connector, check for power going into the low pressure switch (found on the accumulator). Often, if the A/C is left on when the system is low on Freon, this switch will turn on and off repeatedly and be ruined. If there is no power at the low pressure cut out switch, the problem is in the dash.

The first thing I would do is check to see if a fuse is blown or bad relay. Then I would unplug the blower motor with a test light make sure you are getting power to the blower located on the far passenger side of the vehicle under the dash if it has power and good ground then suspect vaulty motor. If you are not getting power at the plug then you might have a bad switch or resister. If it does have a blown fuse remember they usually blow for a reason like faulty wiring or even a in the motor itself. I would also recommend that you change the ac cabin filters behind the glove box if they have not been changed most people neglect them on that vehicle because they are a little more difficult to change, after removing the glove box there is a metal bracket in the way of opening the cabin filter compartment. They wont cause a blower motor to not work, however they do restrict airflow to the evaporator and they protect you from pollen, dust, and even exhaust gases. Hope this helps.

Hello, You have two switches which work off the pressure of the Freon. Both of these switches cut off the power to the compressor. One is for HIGH pressure and the other is for LOW pressure. Check for power at the compressor clutch connector harness while the controls are set and the engine is running. You may have power and a bad clutch.
When you say that the Freon pressure is good, does that mean the pressure is within the proper range? Too much Freon will make the HIGH switch cut off power and too little will make the LOW pressure switch cut off power.
The ideal amount(ozs) of Freon is what is recommended by the Manufactuer and it will provide a moderate amount of pressure of about 35psi-40psi. You can borrow pressure gauges, called Manifold gauges to measure your system at autoparts stores with loaner programs.
The low pressure side of the system is the one you use to induce the Freon to go into an empty system. You can bypass this switch by taking off the connector and putting a "U" shaped jumper into the harness and the compressor clutch should get power to LOCK up all of the time.
You can take off the switch connector at the compressor clutch and then check for power when bypassing the HIGH pressure switch if the LOW pressure switch does not make the system get power. Only, really only bypass the HIGH pressure switch with the clutch connector disconnected. The HIGH switch is there to prevent damage to all of the components from seals to lines to every piece of Freon hardware in the car. Bypassing with the A/C clutch disconnected will allow you to know if power is getting to the compressor clutch.
Finally, you can get FREE wiring and fusebox diagrams through Autozone.com. Just sign and register to their site and then you can print the documents for yourself.
Good luck with this repair and I hope my solution helps you.
