My Trane a/c wont cool

i have a trane xe 1000 outside and the trane xe 80 inside. it hasnt been cooling the last 3 days, the fan outside and the one inside are both turning. there is also a continously blinking light on the diagnostic. have also noticed lights in house dimming since this started 3 days ago. also when u turn it on it wont shut off i guess thats because it not cooling. any help wpould be appreciated dont have the money to call anyone in. my daughter and i are frying in these 105 temps here in oklahoma. hope someone can tell me how i might fix it myself. thank you

You have to check capacitor and ohming the compressor. Do you know how to use multimeter?

Not much to go by from your post. You need to check to see if the compressor is running, and check to see if the freon charge is OK, if you do not know how to do this, call a tech.

As the others said. And if you continue to let it try to start like it is. You WILL burn out the compressor.
