A/C Questions before I take it in...

Long story short I have no A/C. In addition, the blower motor runs for awhile then starts slowing down while making a noise like the blade is hitting something. Leave it off for awhile and it'll start back up. It seems the speed setting has a direct effect on how long it'll blow before dying. The vent position switch is currently disconnected because it stopped turning. I manually switched the vent to "Vent" at the box by gas pedal. The A/C and RECIRC lights both come on as they should. The compressor clutch does not engage at any point, but interestingly enough the cooling fans don't turn on either which they should automatically come on when the A/C is turned on AFAIK. It's like the car doesn't know the A/C has been turned on. I couldn't test switching the relays because the plastic caps came off both the headlight ones but the relays wouldn't budge.

I read through the thread at the top of this forum but I'm wondering if the fan and A/C not working are related and if i'm right that the fans should come on when the A/C is on.

No, my avvy isn't a B&W photo....meet Jaz, the car that makes any pic look monochromatic!
