I have something you can check. The system has a low coolant safety usually plugged in about midway of the coolant reservoir. There will also be a plug above that one for the high coolant safety. If the mechanic let too much freon out of the system when he changed the motor the safety will not allow your clutch to kick in or send power to the relay. The way you can check this is to unplug it from the reservoir and take a straight wire and jump across the plug. If the clutch kicks in when you do this that's your problem. I would only do this to test it then take the wire out. You don't want to run it with the low coolant jumped out for too long.
I hope this helps and have a great weekend

the compressor may be low on freopn but, the fan problem is most likely the fan motor as it is the low temp fan and will run more often than both fans...to test see if you can switch the fan plugin to the other fan watch carefully that it does not get too hot as the second fan is a safety fan that works as high temp or when using the A\C

It could be that there was more than one leak and the dealer found only one. The AC system has two pressure switches to protect the compressor from damage---a low press. switch cuts off the compressor when there is not enough refrigerant in the system, the high switch cuts off when pressures get so high they could blow out the seals. Both are a result of a leak--refrigerant leaks out and air can leak in. Air will compress and when it does, it gets hot--so no cooling, and pressures go way up. So the compressor may have been stopped by those protective switches.
Of course, there could be a bad relay or other circuit malfunction.
Another possibility is that the compressor sat too long before being repaired (but we are talking about weeks going by here, not days). The air and moisture (humidity) that leaks into the system during this time creates acids that will attack the metal reed valves in the compressor. On restart, the damaged metal valves eat themselves in short order. If this is the case, the compressor ran until it seized and will need to be replaced. This particular problem is impossible to diagnose. So the dealer may have done his best.

Testimonial: "Thanks. I did wait a few weeks before bringing car in for AC repair, so you could be right about the compressor. Ewwww."
It still seems that you don't have enough refrigerant by what you have explained .Anyway you look at it the a/c system is leaking way above what is normal for your honda.you need to get some gauges and place a small charge of refrigerant with florescent dye in it (you can buy this at your local parts store)and use a ultra violet light (This also you can buy this at your local parts store)and check to see where the leak is coming from at connections of hoses and around the compressor.This will tell you it is leaking and where and what further action needs to be taken.

I would check the low pressure switch next. The switch cuts power to the compressor if the pressure is too low. The switch can fail.
Same goes for the high pressure safety switch.
As for leaving the relay bypassed, you would need to use a test light or meter to see if you are using battery power with the key off. I would not recommend it.
