Default Air Conditioning Issue

With the weather warming up I hit the A/C button the other day and the yellow light flashed a couple of times but that was it. Light went out and no cold air. Any suggestions for troubleshooting? Is it a simple matter of a dead compressor?

Get ya a can of recharge from the store. Almost bet it is low. If it isnt low then compressor is not engaging. Also be aware that to low amount of refrigerant can also cause the compressor to not engage.

you would have to jump the low freon switch to run the compressor, think the "how to" is in the files I posted ???

Im just saying from my recent experience, I hit my button two weeks ago. It flashed and nothing. I hooked up a recharge can and it was low. After pumping it a couple of times I hit the button and it started to run and I filled it up. Works now.
