Question about 2004 Honda Accord
If your compressor is leaking oil it has most likely lost enough charge in the system that the low pressure switch has activated. This will keep the compressor from engaging. This is a safety override to keep you from ruining the compressor as the charge has lubrication oil in it and to run the compressor without it will ruin the compressor and contaminate the system which will require a complete flush and charge. Get a shop to fix the seal in the compressor and have the charge topped off and hopefully you will be good to go.

AC's have a low freon switch that shuts off the system to protect the compressor in the advent that you have a freon leak have the system checked for a leak

mcdevito75 here, Almost all Freon contains some compressor oill, pick up a recharge kit from your local parts store. If you a/c system has been down for a while you could add a can of oil it comes in one size, and usually added before ar during the freon charge.
