Welcome to the Werkz. Always good to have another 7er on board.
Do you mean the fans aren't blowing air at all, or not blowing cold air(AC)?
Can you hear the AC compressor engage when you turn the cooling on? Does the idle change at all when the compressor engages? If you answer no to either or both of these, you may need to get the system regassed or serviced. I am pretty sure that there is a pressure sensor which will disable the system if there is insufficent pressure.
Thanks for the warm welcome. This is my very first BMW owned. Very impressive car.
Yes, the fans aren't blowing air at all no matter what settings.
I even tried the heater to no avail.
Yes, there was a slight idle change when set to ac is set to "Auto".
