AC not cold in my 2014 Chevy Sonic. Power supply in center console not working.

(2014 Chevrolet Sonic)
When you turn the AC on it blows cool but not cold. I read that unplugging the battery is a temporary fix for this. I want to know what the proper fixes I just got the car I can't afford to keep putting a lot of money into. It read on another website that there is a lot of problems what the AC. Also the charging port in the center console is not working. I seen the video said that's a problem is usually a fuse. Is that the case if so where do I find my fuse box and where do you find the fuse that controls that
What seems to make the problem better or worse? I don't know
How long have you had this problem? A few days. Bought car used from a dealer

Hello, I don't know how disconnecting your battery would influence air conditioning system operation. I would not expect this to help in any way.

For air conditioning system operation -- problems can originate by one of the following general areas:

1) A problem with the refrigerant system. Meaning, the refrigerant used has escaped and there is not sufficient refrigerant to pressurize the system properly, resulting in hot air. When this happens, the system must be checked for leaks, the leaks repaired, and the system recharged.

2) A problem mechanically or electrically with the under hood components. If the compressor has failed, it will not allow the system to operate. Further, if the system becomes contaminated with debris from a failed compressor, this can be even worse. Electrically, the coil of the compressor may not be working properly, or a cycle switch could fail preventing the system from operating. If your condenser fan is not working, the system may not work properly also.

3) Climate control problem inside the vehicle. If the system that operates the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system fails to operate properly, then the under hood components may not be turned on or off properly, keeping the cold air from being produced.

Only testing these systems will yield a direction and an eventual result.

Regarding your power point, you will need to locate your fuse box. Do you have the owner's manual for the vehicle? This would be highly indispensable to have for many reasons, including learning fuse location and other important data.

The fuse that likely applies is F38 -- a 20 amp fuse.

The instrument panel fuse box is located behind a trim cover on the dashboard to the lower left of the steering wheel.
