Default Now it's the AC

Used to come on all the time then slowly started to not work. Finally died the other day so I put in a new climate control unit. No go. Screwed somewhere else. Started with the fuses, I don't know why this has been a slow death not an instant one such as what a fuse would cause. Fuses are all good, now what?

Disregard all and follow post after mine. You probably have bad seals within the lines. Common

A slow death usually means a leak in the system somewhere. Get a can of R134 with the re-usable hose and gauge at Autozone. Start the car, turn the HVAC system down to 60 with the fan on high. Attach the can to the low side port.(don't worry it will only fit the low side port) As the charge gets into the system, you should hear the compressor kick on. Charge it up to the recommended level.

Check your AC Compressor ! Also, have the coolant/refrigerant checked as well. You could have a leak and/or the compress is bad.
