A/C not working

I recently replaced my A/C clutch and compressor but now there is no A/C and no heat. I checked the clutch and its spinning, the compressor is on, and the lines are cold so there's freon in the lines, and I checked the fuse panel and they're all fine. Idk what else the problem could be...

you say no a/c and no heat. is your fan speeds working ? do you feel air blowing out of the dash vents ? you say you changed the compressor, did you bring it to a shop to have the a/c recharged ?

no fan speeds working at all and there is minimal air coming out of the vents and I had it recharged too... I had a friend tell me it could be the resistor but idk...

sounds like the blower motor resistor is bad, common on jeeps. Or could be a bad blower motor. Id test/replace the resistor first.

sounds like a bad fuse or blower motor. although blower motor resistors do get corroded and go bad, usually you will have high still. you can start by checking it though, its accessable under the passenger dash. the blower motor can be pulled out from under the hood, on the passenger side firewall, 3 or 4 bolts hold it in

You say "no heat" and "no A/C". I assume you really mean the blower that pushes air through the heater box is not working. Am I correct?

If so, check the two fuses noted by others in the schematic they posted.

I don't own an XJ any longer, but I still think they are the best of all the Jeep products ever made. My XJ was my favorite vehicle in my 50+ years of driving.
So...I stick around and give advice.

I checked the fuses and they weren't blown how would I check to see if the motor is blown?

Do you own a VOM? If not, you can pick one up for about $15 at Radio Shack or most home improvement stores. Use that, along with the schematic posted above, and you can figure out where you loose the 12V that drives the blower motor.
