Look for the a/c acumulator and by pass the switch on the side of it unplug it and by passed with a little wire then turn a/c on if the compressor goes on turn everithing off and have the system recharge but if you want it to last then have it also test for any leaks of refrigerant before refilling

and if does not come on then there is a burnt fuse or a electrical problem
