Not going to be a fuse problem. There is a low pressure switch that won't let the compressor damage itself. Hopefully you just need the system charged. It is not unusual for mobile a/c system to lose freon. I would shop around for a good price or buy a can of r-134 from nappa. ask them to recommend an inexpensive dispensing tool to go with it.You start the engine and turn the a/c on high then attach the tool to the low side ( it should have an L on the cap ) also the low side is a larger tube then the high side. Maybe best to locate both caps first and makle sure you can identify one is attached to a much smaller tube then the other. If you attach to the high side you could cause the can to burst. I do't mean to scare you the people at napa or a parts store could help make sure which is which they deal with all the time to sell the right parts to fix a/c systems. One can is 12oz and should get the system working or you can look for an independant shop that is reasonable. Freon is cheap and it takes about a half hour to do this right. if this helps please reply and good luck

Is it possible to by pass a AC commpressor on a 1996 vw jetta using a shorter belt ? Or just going to the parts store and asking for a belt with no ac ?

Yes you can bypass the ac compressor with a shorter belt, however it may take a few tries to get the right length belt. Even if they have a belt for a non ac Jetta, the belt sometimes isn't the right length.

This could be a few things.
1- Check fuses for A/C
2- Check to make sure the unit has freon
You have a switch on the accumulator that is called a low pressure shut off switch. It prevents the compressor from running when the freon is low. I would suggest if it is not a blown fuse, have a certified A/C repair garage take a look at this.

Commpressor not kicking on

Assuming it has a full charge of refridgerant, you would have to verify the control head is sending power to the ac compressor. Usually the reason they dont come on is simply because the amount of charge is too low because of a leak.
