07 VW Rabbit AC problem blowing warm air, freon is full, possible simple fix with fuse?

My 07 Rabbit is lightly used and I am the only owner. It has about 75,000 miles. My AC was working really well and then one day it just wasn't. The AC light comes on when engaged, the vents are blowing out air with a lot of force, but the air is not cooling. I had a guy at an auto parts shop place a gauge on my Freon outlet and it showed that the freon is actually full. I saw this with my own eyes. So, unfortunately now I have no idea what to do. I'm thinking about a possible fuse issue bc I also have some trouble now with the lock/ alarm mechanism on the doors too. I've been watching youtube and trying to understand where and what to look for in terms of fuses, but it's become more confusing. Any advice? Thank you in advance!

    This can be caused by an electrical fault in the A/C compressor circuit or the magnetic clutch that drives the compressor. Or you can take it to dealer to check it.

  • Thank you Ricardo. I was able to locate all the uses inside the car and also under the hood. I had someone look at them and they all seem to be in excellent condition. I will have to make an appointment with the dealer in couple months, at the moment I have to travel for my job so my car will be parked for 2 months. Do you think that this could cause problems? My car is garaged for 2-3 months several times a year when I travel for my job. I think you are right though something has gone wrong with the compressor...
