Does this car actually require discharging the A/C to change a timing belt? On many cars, you simply unbolt the compressor from its bracket and swing it to one side, without opening the system.
The PT does require discharging the A/C. I've heard of some people moving the compressor, but I've done it three times, and think it is easier to just discharge it and get the plumbing out of the way.

If in fact the compressor is turning on, then I would check to see that the wiring to the fan was not damaged. The engine is moved quite a bit when changing the timing belt, and you never know if it got pinched somehow. But, Bob's points are right on. Make sure the compressor is turning on and the system is starting to cool.

I THINk there is an A/C fan relay. that's awful I'm not sure since I have one. But, you can open the box in the engine compartment that contains the relays and look at the labels and see if there is one for the A/C fan. Or, someone else here with a better memory (or a manual at their disposal), can take a look and verify whether or not there is one.

I'll try to take a look when I get home from work.

Is it possable that the low speed portion of the fan could be bad ? Im going to go get a low spped fan relay today. It is the only one in the fuse box so I dont have anything to swap it out with to test like the horn relay. its strange.

1) Fan does not come on at all when AC is turned on. But compresser does.
2) While driving with air moving have nice cold AC.
3) Fan does kick on to cool engine when needed.
4) All connections are made to AC unit and fan.

Any other ideas clues hints what not is greatly needed. its going to get hot in Florida soon.
It is possible. That is what happened to my PT, although it was the high speed fan that went bad. I just tested the fan by applying 12 V to both the high and low speed fan connector pins and seeing if the fan would run.
