Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
Sounds like the A/C Compressor Clutch isn't engaging. With the A/C turned on and the engine running, open the hood and see if the center of the A/C Compressor pulley is rotating. If it isn't, then that's why there isn't any cold air. Check all the fuses and relays then check to make sure that the A/C Compressor signal wire is getting 12V when the A/C is switched on. If the compressor clutch isn't engaging, the fuses and relays are good and the signal wire to the compressor is getting 12V then the A/C Compressor itself may need to be replaced. This is, of course, assuming your are certain that there is refrigerant in the system and it is at the correct pressure!

If it blew cold air after freon added and 5 days later blew warm, you may have a leak in the system. Also check and see if compressor comes on if not you may have an electrical issue, relay for compressor,coil on compressor, etc.......

SOURCE: Air conditioner
replace the air conditioner relay, its located underneath the hood, you will see the relay center there, look underneath the cap to identify which is the ac relay switch.

First you need to make sure your testing you ac when the car is on. If its still blowing hot air make sure you have the ac setting set and not the fan setting. If thats not the problem make sure the compressor in the ac is running it give off this distinct humming sound when the ac is turned on, you might need to put your ear next to it if you can find it. If the compressor isn't working check the wiring in the car, and make sure the fuse/chip for the compressor are fine.

Take it to a garage and have them evacuate the system and refill with refrigerant. you have air and non condensibles in the refrigerant system.
