Hello. More information will be needed to properly diagnose this. If the the system is failing to blow cold air, the system will need to be checked for proper blend door operation, compressor operation, and refrigerant pressures. A leak check of the refrigerant system should also be performed. Now, if the system is failing to blow air at all, start with checking the fuses. If the fuses are good, electrical testing will need to be done to see if it’s the blower motor regulator of the blower motor. To verify the cause, have a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose your car’s AC system to see what repairs are needed.
