Air cond wont engage fans run only on low

Could be a fuse, or low refrigerant level

Condenser fan not engaging

Possibly low on refrigerant. When system is low on freon, it does not build up enough high side pressure to engage the condenser fan . When pressure is high enough. a high side pressure switch kicks on the cond. fan to maintain high side pressure. Have the system evacuated and recharged to proper level.

Air cond. Compressor doesn't turn on Is there a separate switch?

Well yes, there is a separate switch. If the A/C system is low on freon, the low pressure switch will keep the compressor from engaging to save it from damage due to no lubrication. The freon helps with lubricating the compressor. Get you a can of 134a from the parts store and add a little to see if the compressor will come on. It should come on before one can is used. Now for the freon to be gone means you have a leak. So if the can gets you cooling, try to find the leak so you can stay cool.

Air cond cutting on high pressure

Sounds like there is insufficient cooling through the condenser, either airflow or the refrigerant may be restricted through the condenser due to clogging of refrigernat oil / contaminates. Try spraying cool water from a garden hose over the condenser while the A/C is engaged and monitorthe pressures, if they drop you know there is a problem at the condenser. If you're confident about the operation of the fans / airflow then replace the condenser.
