Dysfunctional Air Conditioner...
 
After unpacking my '98 Box from storage (for almost a year) I realize that the A/C isn't giving me any cold air. Before I parked it, the A/C worked perfectly. As always, any help appreciated.

sometimes the seals dry and leak freon. Always try to avoid this by using the AC year round for a minute or 2 as this keeps the seals wet and tight against leakage.

you can check the relay but likely the compressor isn't kicking on b/c of low/no freon. See a qualified a/c specialist who will test it by putting in a dye (w/ new freon) and use a blacklight to find the leak(s).

Good luck :)

+1 Most likely you were low on refrigerent when you stored the car and lost enough while in storage so the compressor won't switch on now. A local shop can check for leaks and re-fill and you'll be back on the road in no time.

I agree with everyone who posted. If you are a do it yourself-er, pull the firewall off and turn on the ac, see if the compressor cycles on and off.
