I have a 2006 Nissan frontier 4.0 the A/C only works on level 1 when I turn it to level 2 the A/C light and clutch turn off. Do you think this is a mechanical issue or a faulty climate control switch? I have checked all fuses and relays freon level is good clutch cycle switch is good. All I can think of is the climate control panel isn't sending power to the compressor?

Do you
have the same problem?

Sounds like the blower resistor has failed.

Even if the fan is still blowing? Is there a separate resistor for the cold air?

No, it allows the fan to go slow medium or fast or very fast.

Fairly complex system of control. The first element is called the FAC front air control unit. This signals the BCM ECM and IPDM E/R all these elements must agree to let AC compressor run.
