If the a/c hasn't worked in a while the refrigerant charge will be low the system will need to be evacuated look for and repair leaks, maybe replace the dryer. A/c could have an electrical problem, failed compressor or low refrigerant. Most shops would charge $100 to initially start diagnosing what is wring,if they had to add refrigerant in order to look or a leak they would add $30, if the looked at the car and saw the air conditioning compressor and saw the compressor was siezied they would stop right there as the repair would would be near $900.If the evaporator had to be replaced it is behind the dash and requires major dis assembly.It will not be cheap to fix, $200 at best, $1200 to $1600 at worst.
