Question about 2000 Ford Expedition

AC fan blows just fine - but no cold air

I know, I know, a very dumb question. Please pardon me, for I have ovaries-- so this stuff doesn't come to me naturally. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. My problems: the A/C fan blows just fine, only not cold air. My lighted odometer stopped illuminating, then comes back on when it feels like it. Also, the driver's side window won't always open when prompted by the switch. Today, the odometer and the window have been working just fine.
Per advice from the auto store (another human with ovaries) I purchased a can of coolant with a hose you connect to the "only place/tube it will fit" (they tried to explain it to me but I still have no idea where to connect the hose on the car) I really didn't want to attempt to use it if it's not what I need.
Are these 3 issues possibly connected to a single fuse? Before you ask, I did check the owner's manual, but to no avail. I don't read mechaniceese.
Thank you.

Sounds like you have a loose or corroded ground conntection. That would affect the operation of the window and the dash cluster lighting. It is hard to explain but open the hood and doors, look for a bunch of black wires coming together into a electrical connector, mounted to the frame with a screw or a bolt. Remove the bolt and use sandpaper to clean any rust, debris or paint so the connector has a clean connection to the body. check all over the truck as far as you can possibly go. A fuse is not the problem, it the fuse was bad it would not work period.

As for the Air Conditioning, the end connector of the can, that has to be clipped over the Low side connection. The easy wat to find the service port is start at the a/c compressor, you will find 2 lines exiting it, follow the lines as far as you can, the service port will be on the pipe or hose, possibly covered with a plastic cap , unscrew the plastic cap, and there is the service connection where the can of Freon (coolant) connects.
