Hello, my grandfather gave me his 98 RAV4, it's 4 doors and 2WD. He had the AC recharged before he gave it. I recently ran into a problem. I press the AC button in, the engine revs up a bit and it blows cold air. Then it shuts off seconds later and the button starts flashing.

Did the A/C not work for your grandfather, and that is why he had the system recharged? Did whoever supposedly recharged the system check for any leaks? Did they add lubricant to the refrigerant when recharging? The problem you are having appears to indicate that there is an acute shortage of refrigerant/oil in the system and the system is shutting down to protect the compressor.
