My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. This only means you have refrigerant in the system, but the A/C compressor is not turning on. You should have the A/C checked to isolate why the compressor is not turning on. It may be a relay or possibly the compressor or some other electrical issue that would need to be diagnosed. If you need help having this tested, a qualified professional from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the A/C system and make proper repairs.
