    Check the fuses. Check to make sure there is refrigerant in the system.

    what do you mean it dosent work? It blows hot, or just nothing? If its blowing hot, it probably just needs to be charged.

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    If it cycles on and off without getting cool, you have a leak/low refrigerant. If the clutch won't energize it's an electrical problem.
    If it cycles, and before you waste money on refrigerant, have the system leak checked.

    My brother had the same thing happen on his 02 Tacoma at the start of a 13 hour car trip. The a/c just cut off but the light stayed on for the a/c. Took it in the shop, said it was clogged or something like that, they flushed the system out and now it works even better than before
