If you have already checked pressure or put in a can of freon, then it could be the compressor clutch is bad or is not being energized.
Check for voltage at the wire to the compressor clutch, and that the compressor is properly grounded.
If you want to by pass the relay and control for the relay, just power the clutch wire with a jumper. You should see the center of the compressor hub start to spin along with the rim of the pulley.

You may want to put some gauges on it and check the charge on your a/c system. Not sure about that car, but most have a low pressure sensor that prohibits the a/c compressor clutch from engaging unless there is a sufficient charge in the system to save the compressor. I would start there with your troubleshooting.

Think about this:
Can you supply voltage to the clutch to engage it? Remove the connector and use wire to directly energize the clutch. The only thing that I'm unsure of is whether it is 12 volts.

if the compressor is not engaging then check the fuses with a test light.if they are good then you will have to check the a/c relay in the relay box.if this is good then you might have a low freon level in the system that won`t allow the system to could be a problem with the diode at the a/c compressor of the compressor itself maybe seized,even a car this new.

1999 Honda CRV A/C

The compressor is supposed to cycle on and off. The idle problem may not be the compressor but the solenoid that controls the idle when the compressor is engaged. A bad clutch would present in different ways, i.e. metallic scraping noise. I doubt at this point you are damaging the system by running the a/c.
