The A/C and climate control were working before I left on a trip and then the 2003 Pathfinder sat in my driveway for 10 days unused. On my return there was no cold air coming out of the vents. I bought a recharge kit, but it did not suck in any of the new freon and the gauge on low side read 150 pounds. Using an additional pressure gauge, I determined that the pressure on the high side was 150 pounds as well. I released some pressure on the low side and the pressure on the high side went down also. The clutch is engaged when A/C is turned on. Blower and vents are operational. I'm not sure if there is a stuck valve in the compressor or if something electrical like a relay is not operating. There are no fuses for the A/C on the Pathfinder that I can find.

Check system for low Freon pressure. it also depends if this is automatic temperature control and whether or not it is LED grade as all of these are different. if it s one of the aforementioned the controls it will need to be scanned for codes which auto parts cannot do, it has to be scanned with a professional grade scanner. A mechanic will have to do the scan for you.
