Not sure where it is on your car. Do you have a fuse box on your fire wall?

I have a full can of freon with the hose attached and valve shut hanging on the wall of my shed because the wife'* old Civic stopped blowing cold air. After I found it wouldn't take any if it (fully charged) I checked the fuse and sure enough, it was blown. Replaced it and all was well. Wife came out and asked if the freon worked and said "Sure did, Honey.... like a charm".

You must erase the low refrigerant code before the compressor will function. you can do this from the driver seat in your Deville. This should have been done instaed of jumping the plug oncethe code is cleared you should be a millionare.
I'll find you instructions.
