Default A/C not working after HVAC red mod...

so i noticed yesterday the AC wasnt working but all the other controls were... the AC button still pushes down and lights up but i dont hear/feel the AC compressor kicking in...

i checked the fuse and it seems fine, does anybody else know what could be going on or what i should look for??? thnx in advance..

i will try out ur suggestions when i get back from my trip...

Take everything back apart and make sure you connected everything up correctly.

maybe you have a low charge or a leak or maybe like everyone else said you forgot a connection?

thnx for the replies... the weird thing is, there are two main white plugs that go into the board and that other smaller plug that im guessing is the cabin temp sensor... the other two im sure i was careful in reconnecting, could either connector be for just the AC?? i will try and tear it apart tomorrow to check it out...

whats wrong with it my friend? When you add in LED's things get messed up. Take it apart, remove the crap, and I bet it will go away!

i think something other than the illum fuse got fried as well.... i posted a problem i had after the negative lead coming out of the last led came off the pin and touched the positive one... i blew the illum fuse needless to say.

its just odd that all the other controls are working but not the AC... im just trying to figure out where the other AC components are so i can figure out where the source of the problem is, i wish i had a spare circuit board so i can see if it is fact fried...
