when you turn on the ac the electric fan should kick in , you can hear this .

simultaneously you should hear a "click" this is the ac compressor kicking in .

there could be a leak and your fresh charge has bleed off, but i think i have got you started .

ac compressor should kick in on defrost . there are fuses under the hood and possibly under the dash . and a relay under the hood , swap it for another one in a system you know works . there all the same relays .

write back what you've found .

Yah, the first place you have to start is whether or not the AC pump is kicking on, and whether the auxilary electric fan is kicking on with the pump. Once you have established that these are working, then you can move on to the wack load of other things it can be.

Does the car have to be on to check and see if the ac turns on? and what noise does it make? when the cars on and i turn the ac to on it makes a hissing noise for a second and when i turn it off.
