the click is normal when it enganges and disengages why its not cold mean you ethier have not r134a left or low possibley a leak some where recharge it and put a dye in the system and then if it getd warm again take a uv light and check the a/c system for leaks

you have a leak in the system somewhere.
low freon is the reason its not cooling and why the compressor is cycling on and off.
have it checked out before the compressor burns up.

Sound like its low on freon...

Go to Wal-Mart and pick up a freon re-charge kit for about $20-$25 bucks... The whole system hold 1.8 pounds (28.8 Ounces) of freon. So if you pickup 2 - 12 Ounce can you should be set...:thumbsup

A can of freon is like $8- to $12 bucks...:w:

you may have the dreaded " door " problem. ive read two different issues on the a/c problems, one is low freon and the other is the evap door is stuck closed .. you gonna take it in and have it looked at ?
