Default AC temperature warm when stopped and have to turn down low to cool

Hello, When driving I have to set the ac really low to keep cool and then it goes is warm when I stop. When moving and set to low it will freeze you out. I searched the forum for information and did find some relating to this. however I THINK my problem started after installing integrated xm. I do not think the installer removed the drivers side lower panels where the cabin temperature sensor is connected, but unsure if maybe there is any other connectors for the cabin temperature sensor behind the NAV or CD player that they may have disconnected by accident? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Check the freon level. Are there any visible bubbles in the sight glass?

Easiest way to diagnose is go and buy a R-134 hose with gauge. If freon is low, take to a shop and have it properly filled and dyed to source the leak.

If freon is full, then you can begin diagnosing other problems.
