Question about 1996 Pontiac Bonneville SE CA Value
Check your fuses & wiring also the wires on the A/C switch in the dash to make sure they are connected, the switch or the clutch itself may also be faulty; to check the clutch run a wire from the positive terminal of the battery to the clutch on the air conditioner compressor & see if you can hear it clicking in, make sure you connect it to the positive lead of the clutch,you don't need to have the motor running or the ignition switched on......hope this helps.....cheers

Your A/C relay may have gone bad and has disconnected the power to the A/C compressor clutch.
Not sure where the relay is to your A/C, it may be in the fuse box but regardless check the relay and replace if it's seized. If you like in the mean time, you can always disconnect the wire harness to the A/C compressor clutch to keep the battery from draining and save your compressor from over heating.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted and be glad to help.

Testimonial: "Well, turned out to be the engine was saturated with water, and I just removed the fuse for the ac clutch, do not need it this year! LOL"
to prevent damage to the air conditioning system there is a "low pressure switch" located on the condenser near the low pressure hose (large one) .. if the refrigerrant (R134A) gets too low then the clutch will be blocked from activating by that switch .. you can have your system tested and recharged or you can do that yourself .. the R134A is available at auto parts stores .. some come with a gague that is required for proper charge .. if you dont already have a gage then yoiu will need that one ... recharge kits often come with instructions .. other less likely but possible problems could be a fuse or bad AC clutch relay. sometimes damaged wiring or bad clutch will be the problem but much more likely just low fluid ..
