Default AC Problems SOLVED

Ok so ever since I got the truck the AC didnīt work properly, not cold enough and the direction of the air was all goofy not getting what i selected in the direction nob... eventually it just stopped working at all... I thought that the selenoid might be stuck... I got a guy from the AC shop to come on over and try to repair it and here is the solution:

1)It turns out that the direction of the air works on a vacuum and there was a hole in the hose.... changed the little hose and the direction worked great

2)and the selenoid was not it... it turns out that the relay is messed up... and even when the ac was off the little darn engine kept going.... even when the truck was off, the relay kept sucking battery power... and draining it of course....

3) got a re-charge of the freon gas (or whatever itīs called)

all for $25 !!

Just thought Iīd share it if someone ever has one of these 2 issues...
