If the system was overcharged, a protective switch may be preventing the turnon of it and the possible rupture of a line or damage to the compressor.

A charging kit with a gauge is a worthwhile piece to have around even if the gauges aren't all too accurate.

If you are in the US, NAPA may have them in stock; ours did.
If your system is leaking, you need a special detector to find it or the injection of a special-pupose color dye that will show any cracks or leaks in the system.

I just replaced my ac clutch on my 2001 mercury grand marquis and it worked great, now on my second day the clutch is not engaging and the ac is not blowing cold

The clutch will not engage if the refrigerant charge is low. You will need to find where the leak is (may even be the compressor itself) by using leak detection dye, and you will need to recharge the system. MAKE SURE TO USE THE CORRECT RATIO OF PAG OIL TO REFRIGERANT WHEN YOU RECHARGE THE SYSTEM.

My air conditioner it doesn't turn on

The AC compressor will not engage unless the system is charged up with refrigerant, a low state of charge due to a leak will shut the compressor off. Have a set of gauges hooked up to the AC system and have the pressures checked to see if you have a leak. You must repair the leak before the system is recharged.

The a/c clutch wont engage

Did you try jumping where the Clutch relay plugs into the fuse/relay box ? Pin 87 & 30 are the compressor clutch coil power supply . If you look on the bottom of the relay you will see four set's of numbers 30 & 87 , 85 & 86 . If you take a piece of wire an jump 30 to 87 this will send B+ voltage to the clutch coil engaging the compressor . Is the PCM turning on the relay ?

the blower motor has no affect on the AC system,
start the engine and turn on AC and watch the AC compressor to see if clutch engages,if it doesn't the system isn't full,if you are correct the clutch should be engaged and should quit when you change heater speeds,

Ac does not work blowing warm air dealer mentioned compressor & receiver out ? is this a current problem with the 2004 ?

With engine running, I would check to see if the compressor clutch is engaging when the AC is turned on. If not, I would first have the freon level checked. If after checking, it is fully charged but not engaging, I would then suspect an AC relay switch.
I hope this helps... Good luck!
