So is it out if freon or is the compressor not coming on. 2 separate issues. No freon = leak. If it is low on freon find someone to charge it properly with dye. $230 is a crap load. My shop is at $70 and that is for 1lb of freon. More freon is $10 per lb. if and when you get it diagnosed if you don't trust the shop call around and get estimates for repair.

06 Kia needs to be diagnosed with a scanner 1st as it has self diagnostic capability.
Evap sensors are common as are relay failures. This isnt one to try to repair at the house as it can cause you to **** money and effort away. I would say it is electrical if it happened that fast unless something was punctured as mentioned. AAMCO is the last place on the planet to take anything for anything.
Go to www.jasperengines.com and click on their installer link and check through them. MOST of their preffered installers are good folk but note that I said MOST. Good Luck!

This is what I'm talking about. I would have thought AAMCO would have done this. Or maybe they did and have just set up a "grand finale" to gouge us. In any event, based on your post, is there nothing I can rule out at home? For instance, we've been told the car needs adequate Freon for the compressor to kick on. If this is the case and it needs charged, can I do this to see if the compressor kicks on. If not it's a wash anyway because we have a limit on what we will spend to fix it. I'd like to rule out expensive stuff rather than pay 100-300 bux to be told it will be $1000 or more to fix the problem. TIA
BTW, it's an 05', my mistake.
