Still too many things to consider before a proper answer can be reached. A mechanic will have to check out and eliminate possibilities. 1. Is the electrical system working? Does the compressor get the signal to engage? If not, there could be a bad sensor/switch or even control head. 2. Did the system retain the recharge of R-134a Freon? If it did, it is probably an electrical problem. If not, then you have a leak that must be repaired.

GM's most consistant A/C problem is their compressors. If the compressor looks like it is wet (oil) then you have a leak and all of your freon is gone.

If you need the compressor replaced, you should also replace the drier and orifice tube. The repair, with a new compressor, parts and labor should be between $700 and $1,000 depending on your area.

Good Luck
