Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
Location of the fusible link to the Air Conditioner?
There are cycle sensors on the low and high pressure side of the A/C. They will keep the A/C pump from getting any current if pressure is to low. You can jump the sensors to see if the pump will come on. If it does come on you might have to charge the system or need a sensor. You need to recover the freon to change the sensors. A certified A/C mech. Needs to do it.

Testimonial: "The system has a wire going directly to the compressor. All you have to do is access the hot wire and go directly to the battery to get the clutche to activate. Strip the wire in the loom next to the alternator for this. Use a wire with a alligator clip for this temporary use. The clutche will activate and allow you to fill the system. Once this is done, load R-134 into the sytem, 1 or 2 cans should suffice. Once loaded, tape the stripped wire carefully and re-install it into the wire loom for future use. This may be needed anytime the system is low on freon. Have the syste checked about every three years to ensure that the compressor has enough oil. This should solve the problem."

You can check fisicaly the wires to the compressor and make sure you don't have any interuption on it. Can you hot wire the compressor from the battery ? But before you do it check the panel AC switch.
