Re: GTV - aircon dead?
It could be a long long list of things.
When did you last check the gas?
When was the last time the filter/dryer was replaced (could be clogged up)
Can you hear the compressor kicking in?
Is the condensor getting hot (should be)?
Can you hear the relay clicking on?
Check all fuses/relays (should be a 50 amp fuse in engine compartment).
Check the pollen filter, should be changed every year.
If the compressor is working but cutting out after a couple of minutes, check that the engine fan is working (needs to cool the condensor or the gas overheats and the compressor shuts down).
Anti freeze thermostat could be bad (check it with a multimeter)
And this is just for starters but if you can't find anything electrically wrong and the compressor is working OK but the A/C is not cooling the cabin very well, have it checked out for leaks, replace dryer, refill and see how it goes.
