Question about 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer
The ambient air temperature sensor is bad or has a connection/wiring problem. It is not blowing cold air because it thinks the outside air is less then 35degrees. When the computer sees outside air less than 35 it disables AC so that ice will not form inside the vehicle and in HVAC system. The sensor is directly behind the front grill. You might be able to check it for connection/corrosion/frayed or damaged wires. If no evidence of this I would replace it.

Tips for a great answer:
Inspect vacuum hoses for splits, kinks, and proper connections, as shown on Vehicle Emission Control Information label. Inspect thoroughly for any type of leak or restriction.
Inspect the air intake ducts for being collapsed, damaged areas, looseness, improper installation, or leaking, especially between the mass air flow (MAF) sensor and the throttle body.
Inspect for air leaks at throttle body mounting area, mass air flow (MAF) sensor and intake manifold sealing surfaces.
Inspect the wiring harness for poor connections, pinches, cuts, or other damage.
Inspect for loose, damaged, or missing sensors and/or components.
Really need to check sensor PID'S with a scan tool, An maybe a scope too ! PID'S are parameter identification . All the sensors operate within a set voltage parameter , like the coolant temp. sensor an if it's off it can affect fuel delivery !
