AC not working

Hi all. I have a 2002 base 6cyl 3.8. My AC recently went out (blows hot air). I had is diagnosed & was told it was an electrical issue. My question is, what are some simple things that deal w/the electrical parts of my AC system that I can check or replace myself. I don't have much spare $, so I'd like to avoid taking it in to get it fixed. Keep in mind I live in Arizona =(. Thanks

Electrical? That's not a common issue. It's usually out of freon, ac leaking and bad compressor.. But electrical i doubt it. Have you tried charging it with a freon? Or is the ac pulley running?

That's an electrical problem, haha! Maybe u have been messing up with the elec switches inside the dash. Did u now solved the problem? It is just a bad connection.

Idk either. Lol! As far as i know the controls in our dash such as the ac and blower control that is a multiple position switch, if any of these controls malfunction or have a poor contact at the connectors the problem will most likely be the ac system does not work.
