Default A/C problems

my wife has a 08 xb and lately the a/c has not been very cold. I bought a recharge kit from walmart, and the meter was on the low end of "good" so I added some Freon, and there was no difference.


I am noticing when the fan is on 1 or 2, there will be some cold air that comes out. but when I set the ac on 3 or 4, it just blows warm


NOTE : I do hear the cooling fan and the ac compressor engage.




any help is greatly appreciated.

Is it in range of the correct pressures with the ac on full blast?

Is the cabin air filter clogged?
Is the belt squealing/slipping?
I don't trust those DIY kits - good chance to over pressure the system. Sadly one of those things it's worth having a proper mechanic check out.

If it is reading proper pressure there might be a messed up electrical connection somewhere past the first two points. Something as simple as a switch replacement or a bad relay.
