You could have a vacuum leak or the fans are not working. The fuse box in the engine compartment left fender there is a relay for the A/C and one for the heater fan. The one for the A/C controls the fans. Switch the A/C and blower motor relays, turn on A/C, If the fans come on the relay will cost about $10 .
