See if you can find the AC COMPRESSOR located under the hood of this vehicle. Start the engine with the AC OFF. See if the AC compressor is turning. The belt and the AC pulley should turn but the front hub should not. Have some one inside the car, turn the AC ON/OFF several times. You should hear a "Click" every time the AC system turns on and off. Also...when the AC IS running and the engine warms up...BOTH coolant fans should be running. Get back to us with the results.
