It may just need a charging. Autozone can check that for you, usually, and a simple kit can cost around $50 and extra charging canisters will be needed to bring up the pressure. I believe that vehicle has the quick connection in engine bay. Good Luck, stay cool!!

You most likely have a bad blend door actuator. Some time after the vehicle sits the actuator may work again, but only for a short time.

    Not much detail beyond this... A/C only blows cold air below 78 degrees or so. Above that, it only blows out hot air.
