    Hello folks...

    so my mother has a 1995 Saturn SL2. The A/C is not getting
    cold. With the engine on, when the switch on the ac controls is
    turned on, it blows air, but is not cold at all. While looking under
    the hood while the engine is on, you can see the compressor engage and
    disengage as you turn it off and on.

    I thought that if a newer modern a/c compressor was out of
    freon/refrigerant there was a safety doodad to stop it from engaging,
    to keep it from burning up the compressor. Is this incorrect?

    I found one big square looking fuse in the fuse panel for the
    HVAC next to the passenger seat on the center console... I have no
    idea hwo to check this or if the ac would work at all with this fuse
    damaged or broken. The 15 amp fuse on the same panel marked as for the
    HVAC, tested fine.

    So, any ideas on further trobleshooting?

    Thank you,

    -W

    You could check the big square fuse with a continuity check. Checking
    the pressure of the system would tell you if there's enough/any freon
    in the system.
