SOURCE: ac compressor won't engage
the ac compressor has a safety switch built in it to keep it from coming on if the liquid level of freon is low this keeps the compressor from overheating and going out all together. try hooking up a can of R134a and turn the can upside down so that the liquid flows in and the compressor should kick in with almost one full can.

70 psi static does need a charge.find compressor relay, jump relay and compressor will start. add refrigerant,replace relay and a/c should work fine

check fuse then relay, if both ok disconnect snap in wiring harness at the top of the accumulator tank and use a jumper wire . plug it into the end of wire harness turn a/c on to max if pump kicks on ,then its not the pump but switch that is screwed into the accumulator tank. ran into the same problem with my 97 blazer definetly a cheaper fix than pump also make sure a/c is discharger first before removing switch a/c is a pressurized system so you dont get hurt or worse frostbite

When your R-134a runs too low it will NOT engage the compressor. You need to refill your a/c system before the clutch will engage, I also suggest finding the leak.
