It could be your blower motor. Thats a fairly simple fix. Turn you ait on after 2 minutes check your compressor and touch and see if the metal lines that look like pipes are cold and have light water if so the nthe compressor is charging (most expensive component for the a.c.).

The a/c unit kicks on, just there is no air blowing out. Its not blowing out of the any vents. The front, dash or floor.

The blower motor is what blows the air out to the vents. Therefore is could be that or a unit that supplies power to the blower motor. Once they inspect it they can tell which one is lacking power.

The blower motor resistor may be the blame i have to replace mine cause i only have heat on 3 and 4 but not 1,2 and 5

Wondering if you ever figured out what;s wrong with your car? My ac/heater switches to "on"- you can hear it clicking but does not blow ANY air at all. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It hasn't worked for about two days now. Hoping it's a cheap fix but at work so I can't get to my mechanic right now.
