Turn the temp down and the fan up JK Hopefully it's just a switch or fuse....pray for something simple! I just replaced the entire AC system on my 07 Freestyle....not fun! Best of luck and keep us updated.

Check the freon charge. The low side port is a PIA to get to. Its behind the air box, againt the firewall, under the computer wiring connections

I would take a look at A/c high and low side pressures and if they are low I'd recharge it and add dye and use a uv light and goggles to find what is leaking.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

I have the same issue, it blows fine just not very cold. I put a thermometer in the vent and it read anywhere from 64 to 70, and that was set on the coldest setting. I haven't checked the freon yet, that's probably where I will start.

Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

I notice during really hot days here in NorCal, the A/C gets cold but it takes a little bit...like 5-10 minutes or so. It seems to be ok after the initial cool down.
