Hello, You have a failed ignition lock cylinder, the wires that give the signal to the computer that allows the engine to start and run are broken where they leave the lock cylinder. To replace you need to remove the steering wheel, the air bag tape, the signal light switch to get to the lock cylinder. Wish I could help more.

Why does a cond not work at start up but works fine when it does turn on


It has a delay built in. It will not turn on until the engine has warmed up to at least 100 degrees. The computer is also calculating engine load and puts a delay on the compressor until it has the idle set properly.
