Could be low on refrigerant, what has been done to the system? Is the condenser fan running when the ac is on?

The fan is suppose to be running when the ac is on so that the refrigerant in the condenser can be cooled. If the fan doesn't come on at all I would check the fuse (It's located behind the glove box and it's a pretty large fuse 50 amps). If the fuse is blown chances are the fan is no good. A new fan at the dealers is somewhere between $500 to $1500 (depending on how much the dealer is a stealer) and about 4 hours to replace (the front bumper cover and metal bumper have to be removed).

Did you replace the 50 amp fuse after you replaced the fan? If the fan was Bad, chances are that it blew the fuse. The fan should be running when the ac compressor is on.

Do you know what the high side and low side pressures are when the ac is running and the ambient temp when these values were recorded?

Do you have the Automatic climate control or the manual climate control?
