    Typically if the blower is working, air conditioners do not come because of a loss of refrigerant. There are other reasons however this is the most common

    But It does not look like the compressor is even coming on at all... your saying that it would not come on at all if the coolant is too low?

    That is correct when the refrigerant reaches a certain level most systems are designed to shut off the compressor so damage does not occur
