Default PT Cruiser Air conditioner issue

Ok so I have a 2005 GT. Replaced the air conditioner lines. Charged the system and it only worked for the one day. Then nothing the next day. Checked and there is still freon in the system. I am at a loss for what I should do next.

Is there enough pressure to keep the low pressure switch closed?
Is the high speed fan running to cool freon?
did one of the wiring connectors come loose?

Did you replace the drier receiver at the same time?

If you didn't, you now need to to eliminate it from causing your problem - and from potentially wrecking your compressor.

Rule of thumb:
if you are going to open the AC system - ALWAYS budget for a new D/R.

They are peanuts - half the cost getting it de-gassed and re-gassed - which you'll have to now...

I did change the dryer as well. I have to check the levels. I guess the D.I.Y recharge did not have enough. I will have to check it out again. Thanks everyone

There's a fuse/relay box on the back of the engine. I had a very similar problem. And it ended up being the AC relay/fuse.
