    Everything was fine yesterday.
    Did an oil change and topped off with coolant on the passenger/driver side.
    Passenger side was a bit over filled, ran air compressor and rag and blew some out.

    My AC is not cold, nor do i hear the AC compressor turning over.

    BEER MONEY for anyone that can help me resolve this issue.
    I live in AZ and its HOT!!

    Check, disconnect, inspect, clean and dry electrical connections at the compressor. Degreaser can serve as an insulator.
