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!

Looks like recirculating air is not turning on either (bottom button), but the defrost button is working just fine (top).
