are you saying that there is no air flowing through the vents- or that its not cold? Sounds like if there is no air moving at all, your blower is faulty. could be the resistor or maybe the climate control unit.

Check your fuses. If I remember correctly, you were having some auxiliary fan problems. A faulty fan may have blown a fuse you need for your A/C.

Which fuse was the culprit? You may have to look into this problem a little bit deeper, just to be safe.
