    So by putting the A/C knob on the heat/red side your getting heat venting in your cabin??? This definitely sounds like a leak in your hoodscoop. You should adjust the tire pressure to fix it.

    I hope your not seriously asking this question though!

    Did you mean "cold" instead of "heat?"

    See if the compressor engages when you push the AC button in and turn the blower fan on. Also see that the AC button light lights up.

    Where did you splice in for your timer installation (did you splice at all or use a harness)? Check that you've not loosened a wire or ground connection under the switches -- all this assuming you didn't knock a duct off if you were fiddling under the dash etc.

    Are the fuses OK, incidentally?

    i am using a wiring harness for the turbo timer. the ac, and the whole dash lights up. but when i go to turn it on cold or hot, it wont blow, nothing comes out.

    ill check on the fuses and the losse wires, but which fuse is it? sorry im relatively new to this

    OK, in essence you don't have an AC problem -- you have a blower fan problem. Although blower motors can and do fail, this is unlikely in a newer car. Most likely, you've either knocked something loose or shorted something and blown a fuse. It's just a matter of backtracking through what you did recently under there and checking things, I'm betting.
