2006 Chevy Impala AC Problem

Hello. I have a 2006 Chevy Impala. The Car has no climate control. When I push the button to turn on the Air Conditioning the light on the button blinks a few times and then goes out. I can’t hear the AC Compressor start up and the car never blows air colder than the ambient temperature. Any help would be appreciated.

The AC system needs to be checked for proper charge. If the refrigerant in the AC system is low, there’s a low pressure switch in the AC system that prevents the compressor from operating. This is done to protect the compressor from damage due to low refrigerant.
