added freon and no air.
after added a can of freon to the car 2 days later dont have a/c
scanned for codes and nothing from a/c system
manually checked for freon from the valve and no freon present.
maybe is stuck or is broke?
i used a ezchill gbm-3cs to measure and before fill the freon in my side was warm air and in the pasanger side was cold, thats the reason i decide to test and fill.
filled and work very good, 2 days excellent after that only warm air.
i have this codes.
when i bought my car, was a salvage car that dont start.
i found the abs was the culpt cut the wires and search for a pig tail and abs pump, have the abs pump ready to install buth not the wires. i checked for a wire without protection in the area and all are right.
i know most of the codes are for that abs module and no conection. there.
if somebody know a computer harness completelly or just the pigtail for a sts2002
or when i can buy in ebay are rare or insane prices.
returning to a/c problem
i read the a/c system from the sts are 35oz of freon needed and 6oz of oil.
is possible the compressor is broke or just orings?
here where i live the heat are 40c min and 48c max

I would say you have an system leak. Take it to a shop and they can inject a fluorescent dye into the system that will tell them where the leaking connection or component is.

Re: added freon and no air.
If you added refrigerant and it was cold for 2 days. then got warm, you have a leak in the system. DO NOT attempt to recharge it using refrigerant with a sealer in it.
