r12 is the original refrigerant on a 1993 model year Prizm r12 is the original refrigerant on a 1993 model year Prizm
I'm not sure about the 1993 model but in the 2001 they don't have "Freon" (meaning R12) any more. The refrigerant is stored in that silver canister on the front left side of the engine-bay. R12 is expensive to replace. AC service providers are EPA licenced to service R12 & R134 systems, but they won't sell you the "stuff". So, you have to go to a service provider. I hope this helped. == 1993 Prizms still used Refrigerant-12, commonly known as "Freon". Later models use R-134. Refrigerant is distributed throughout the system. The excess refrigerant and oil is held in the drier/receiver. If you have a tight system and can afford it, stick with the R12. You will not regret it. Retrofit to R134 can be very problematic and expensive.

If your 1993 Toyota Corolla is blowing hot air, it might have a refrigerant leak in the cooling system. You can try replacing the refrigerant with a kit found at most auto parts stores, but if the leak is large, this fix will not last long. You might also have a compressor failure.

Blown fuse? Refrigerant leak?
I would be surprised if it was anything but R12
it resets automatically when there is not a problem. if it is still on, there is a problem. you may try bleeding the system and refilling it, otherwise your modulator is probably bad. this is a very common problem in older accords.
The factory installed OEM refrigerant was R12 Freon. As Freon is extremely expensive and no longer in production, I suggest you have this vehicle converted to R134a. Seek help from a professional for the conversion and repair of the leak you must have or you wouldn't be adding refrigerant. You will be money ahead rather than just adding R12 to a leaking system which BTW is illegal.
