Compressor will not turn on but has been checked and does work. Fan works but only blows hot air. Previous owners son put original radio back in without hooking up. Could he have cut a wire or done something to air conditioning?

There are no misfire or noticeable effects.

The transmission did not exhibit any problems, pulled hard and shifted smoothly. Then gradually started taking it's time to find a gear. Now there is a slight whine noise and long hesitation to reverse and no other gear. Full of fluid and not mistreated about 145,000 mi. I am not getting any codes except a 71 which seems to be a hard code in this computer. Used computer that seemed to work well in this car. Have cleared this code only to have it reappear......... Hope someone can help....
