A/C blows only warm air, is there a way of repairing this issue without going to a shop? Thanks

I would venture that he A/C is using 134 coolant. You can go to Walmart and pickup a kit with the gauges included for about $25. This has the refrigerant included and see what the guages indicate for the refrigerant level. That is an idea. BUT I look at the newness of the car and I wonder if you can tell when you turn on the A/C if the compressor kicks on or not. I might suggest looking for a fuse that could be blown.

Thanks for the input, I wasn't aware that coolant was so readily available, is this the the material they call "Free on"? And yes I will check to make sure the compressor kicks in. But if its not. Any suggestions on that topic?
Thanks once again

I wouldn't call it Freon but it does the same thing. After early 2000 something all vehicles use R134a refrigerant. I would bet your vehicle does as well. It should be listed or dsiplayed on the vehicle under the hood or on the compressor, etc in the engine compartment. On older cars you can remove the R21 and replace them with the 134.
If the compressor is not kicking in I would look for a fuse. Fuses can be found in the passenger compartment usually down by the drivers knee or foot area. They are also found under the hood usually on the passenger side of the engine compartment.
