Question about 1998 Ford Taurus
Sounds like either the a/c relay , ON/Off switch or possible a high pressure switch.
All of these can be checked with a voltmeter.
Relay must have B+ going to it and leaving it .
On/off switch when removed from connector and bypassed with jumper wires should turn on system.
High pressure switch should have B+ on both sides of its terminals when system is on.
If your gonna do the diagnosis and repair yourself
you must do these tests when the vehicle is hot and a/c fails to turn on.
If you determine its the high pressure switch. I recommend you farm the job out (unless you have a recovery machine and a set of manifold gauges). It will be safer and cheaper to repair. Good luck.
