The most common failure is the blower motor resistor located under the dash on the right side near the blower motor. Remove the panel under the dash to gain access. disconnect the connector to the resistor( its a four wire connector that appears to plug into the duct). Using a test light connected to voltage touch the terminals on the tan, light blue and purple wires while turning the switch from med 1, med 2 and high. If the test light lights up as you do this the resistor is bad. Remove the two retaining screws the remove the resistor.

Why will my 1993 ford aerostar air conditioner will not turn on after i put in the freon?

You have to add 134a refrigerant while the engine is running and the A/C is on max with temp setting at lowest level. Without the proper charge in PSI, the compressor will not kick on. If the pressure is correct under those circumstances, You either have air in the system ( take it and have it pumped down then refilled) or the compressor is bad.

What is the noise when the air conditioner is runing sounds like a switch going on AND OFF

Its the air compressor kicking on and off. If your air is cool, its normal. If it just keeps going off and on alot, you may need to have your air conditioning charged. (freon)

Air conditioning is weak

I will explain a few things about air conditioning and a possible rework using a $12 part. An orifice tube is part of some Air conditioners. The cheap ones are $3, but a self-adjust orifice for areas of 105 Degree heat are available. If done with a Freon Recovery machine, Freon costs will be minimal. It takes a special tool to change the part, but you could get the High Temp orifice online and find a place to switch it. Vacuum pumping is advised before refill.
Second, the best amount of Freon is a moderate charge. You have 2 cut-off switches one for low and one for high. This means the compressor will cut off when either extreme is reached. The recommended amount of Freon fill is what the Factory has determined. So many ounces per Label.
Air flow. You could just have a blocked Air flap under the dash or a Solenoid that is not turning the flap fully open. What you could do is try a used car on a lot and see how the blower works.
Fan speed resistor. If you have Digital Climate Control, this is an almost infinite speed regulator. Part of it could be burned out and even if the duct flaps are working properly, you won't get the push out of the system. Or it may have a part called a Solar switch which works with Climate Control and the other switches.
So if the Shop checked the Freon charge and it was Okay, there are still the additional items I mentioned which can affect the performance of the Air Conditioner. Again, check car lots for used cars to start up and check A/C performance.

My 2004 Saturn Vue air conditioner no longer works well when the vehicle is at idle RPM (sitting or driving at low RPM). It doesn't get very cold or seem to pull any humidity out of the air. The freon...

First change the belt driving the compressor. Belt slippage is the number one cause of low cooing at idle or slow speeds (if the charge is OK)

My air conditioner on my 2003 Saturn Vue is not blowing cold air. A friend looked at it an says there is a leak. How do you repair a leak?

with a/c you usually have to replace the part that is leaking.hose,condensor,evaporator.or if its a seal,seal replacement,schrader valve etc.this needs to be done at a shop that does a/c work as the system will need to be evacuated,repaired,vacumed,recharged,proper oil installed and rechecked for leaks,and checked for proper operation.

Air condition does not work just hot air I have set it to auto or manul it just give me hot air

Your freon level is low. Go to any shop that charges car air conditioners and get your freon recharged. Usually the charge is around $25-50. Joe

Toyota echo 2003 air conditioner stoped button dosn't show power on led.7.5 fuse is ok.what's next?

Ok if your air conditioning system has lost the freon leak and the compressor does not start even if you have well I recommend the fuses check if you have full charge of freon in the system and then wanted another cause. Thanks

Is the compressor engaging? If not he needs to find if a sensor issue if its fully charged or a low pressure or refrigerant condition. You can have pressure without refrigerant.

AC is not working

Sounds like the A/C system just needs to be recharged. When was the last time you had this done? Just take it in to your mechanic and he can do it for you and if that's not it for some reason, then he will be able to find the problem but most likely you need more freon added.
