So, no A/C at all? I have had recent A/C issues on my Acura, but it was nothing happening at all, even though the panel stayed lit.
You problem may be the switch, but I guess the fuses are the best place to start. As you probably know, you will find a lot of good A/C information by searching this forum, especially pertaining to the thermal cutoff inside the transistor assembly that can burn out and shut down the system. I am pointing that out because if you end up at the dealer, they may charge about $300 to replace that assembly, when most people can replace the cutoff inside themselves, which is a 45 cent part online. Maybe your problem will just be a simple fuse. Sorry I cannot help more than that.
