Default 1996 Honda Accord Air Conditioning Not working

Car has never had an air conditioning problem. However, 2 days ago after
going through a car wash, I turned the A/C on and it failed to blow cold
air. When I turn on the A/C light, the green light over the A/C goes on,
and uncooled air blows. I noticed that the car does not labor as it
normally does when the A/C is engaged. Also, after checking someone
else's post, I checked to see if the radiator fans were on--they were not.
Are they supposed to be on? Any comments or suggestions would be
greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Dan

There's an electric clutch that engages the air conditioning pump.
It's possible you damaged/shorted something with the wash. After
that look for refrigerant loss, etc.

yes the electric fans are supposed to engage with the A/C on. You
have to "have" air across the condensor for the air condentioning to
work.

you may just have a loose wire / connection. I would make sure the
fans are working otherwise, not only when the A/C is on, or you are
going to have over-heating problems.
