e34 AC refuses to turn on!

Good morning,

It's is a sizziling 90*F outside right now and I am dying in my e34. I bought the car and had it shipped here from California back in October, so I never used the AC and just assumed it would work. Well, for some reason the AC just refuses to turn on. When I hit the AC button no light comes on and the air (even turned all the way on and cold) comes out the ambient temp.

I thought it might be low on AC Freon, so I tried to add some more. However, the gage was reading that the freon was full (and moved down when the AC compresser turned off). I should add that yes, the fan on the front of the condenser IS operating, and the blower motor appears to be blowing the air just fine.

I love this car and I love driving it, but the heat just kills me. Any help at all would be GREATLY appreciated!
