You should check and make sure both the fuses aren't blown and the wires aren't showing serious signs of wear. I would be careful running bare wires from the battery to components, too. Today's cars have a lot of sensitive equipment in them that can be damaged.
Obviously it is not the A/C system itself, since you got it to run, which leads me to believe its something in the fuse box or in the wires. Sometimes there are a couple of different fuse boxes (one near the dashboard, and another under the hood somewhere). Also, some of the wires could be hard to check. I would use a multimeter if you have one, or borrow one from a friend (make sure you read the manual first). Use it to check and make sure the voltage is getting to the A/C compressor through the wire. Let me know what you find.

When I turn the selector to defrost my windshield the air conditioning button light comes on. I can also tell the air cond compressor coming on at the same time. Does anyone know of any fixes?

Hi, this is normal operation of the system. The defroster uses the A/C to remove moisture from the air. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
