I have the same problem. I replaced the temp sensor. Worked for a few days then failed. When the temp shows "cold" the AC will not cycle on; that's normal. The issue is in the temp sensor circuit. The fans running is because the ecm does not see a temp sensor so it assumes a hot condition. If battery disconnect solves the problem it is resetting the ecm (engine control module; i.e. computer). I will try it as I thought it would be an ecm issue.

Jesus S suggestion work. I had the same problem. A/c was blowing cold air for a few minutes then stopped blowing cold air but blow motor was blowing hot air. Next the temperature gage was not working. Disconnected battery for a few minutes and reconnected and the temperature gage is working and the a/c appears to be working. Next problem both engine fans appears to be on constantly. thanks
