2006 Tribute A/C Issues

Just purchased a 2006 tribute and the A/C isn't working. I have checked the voltage at the A/C clutch and it is reading 12+v. I hooked up a battery to the A/C clutch and can hear it engage. I checked the PSI on the low side of the system and am reading between 35-40PSI. Is this correct? The dealer I bought it from said it should be above 60PSI. I am hoping it is just low on refrigerant but am afraid it could be more. Any ideas?

Unless you have a warranty through this used car dealership, I'd have to agree that recharging the A/C is up to you. A used car isn't new, and the dealer is right, refrigerant is a consumable. If you recharge the A/C and it still doesn't work properly, there may be other issues you'll need to correct. Without a warranty stating what specifically is covered, sad to say you're pretty much on your own. :(
