Sounds like low on R-134 or clutch is not engaging properly. HOW was the refrigerant level VERIFIED as correct?
Was the starter and battery bad? Sounds more like a wiring or alternator issue.
Try this FIRST- with it running and warmed up - turn drivers side temp to 'HI' and see if it gets hot(set mode control to vent), IF and when it gets hot , then turn the temp. down 1/2 way and see if it changes , then if it changes , turn it all the way to 'lo' temp and see if it changes a little more. IF the temp. does change , blend door and actuator are probably OK. Most likely low on refrigerant R-134 changing from liquid to vapor , before it reaches the portion of the evaporator that cools the drivers side.
Is the compressor clutch engaging? Do you have a set of gauges hooked up while running , if the compressor is engaging? What are the pressures doing?
