When you say the A/C doesn't work do you mean it doesn't blow cold? Can you hear the A/C compressor try to cycle on? I've had some luck on other cars with the 1234 refrigerant you can buy at Walmart. Get the whole rig that has the hose and valve. Then find the low pressure port. The service manual says it's near the right side strut tower. There is a plastic cap. The refrigerant valve fits on the port something like an air line, no tools needed. Then take the connection back apart, hook up everything to the can of 1234 and open the valve a little to let some come out the end of the hose. Turn the valve back off, hook up the connector, start the car, turn on the A/C full, and then try to add some 1234 by holding the can upside down and swirling it around. The can will get cold if the car is accepting the refrigerant. Feel the vents to see if it's starting to get colder. The valve probably has a little gauge. Don't put in too much and watch some youtube videos about this task. In fact watch the videos first, lol. This has worked for me on 2 cars. Or take it to a shop. That works too. Probably cost $100 or so to have somebody check it out and add a little 1234. You're really supposed to find the leak and fix it and save the ozone layer.

Poor advice above. Never service A/C without the proper tools and knowledge. And R1234yf was not used in the Chrysler 200 until 2015, so he would have you add unknown, uncontrolled amounts of the wrong refrigerant. Your car used R134a. Never add refrigerant without knowing what's wrong and how full the system is. You can be seriously hurt and damage the system.
And adding refrigerant with the can inverted will slug the compressor with liquid and damage it. Only add it with the container upright.
