Multiple problems. Eliminate thermostat first. Remove face from wall and turn on breaker. If fan still runs you have a bad board or bad relay. If fan outside is running compressor should be too. These operate on same contactor. Verify you are getting 24 volts to coil side of contactor. If odf stops working and contactor remains pulled in you have a bad motor. If odf motor stops working the compressor will shut off due to overheating.
Is the unit ducted with a wall mount thermostat? If so, then I would say that you need to check the thermostat. Remove the face plate from the thermostat, there should be 6 or 7 wires, depending on the model. With the thermostat set to high/cool, check for power at the yellow wire and the blue wire. Yellow is the compressor terminal and blue is the high fan. If you have no power at the blue terminal, then you have a bad thermostat. If there is power there, then you need to access the control unit in the air conditioner (remove inner shroud). Check for power at the blue wire at the control unit. If there is power, then you have a bad control unit. The unit is shutting down because it is freezing up in the low fan speed position. You can use a jumper wire on the thermostat to go from the +12 terminal (red wire) to the Hi Fan terminal (blue wire) and also the fan terminal (Either tan or orange, depending on the model). If the fan comes on, then you have a bad thermostat. If not, then you have a bad control unit or the high speed in the fan motor is out.
These unit are set up for continuous fan operation when turned on. It does not have an automatic position on your thermostat such as in your house. Set the fan speed to what you are comfortable with and let the thermostat control the temperature.
Sounds like a power supply problem. There is enough power to run the fan but when you turn it to cool the current draw by the compressor drops the voltage. The lower power light is telling you the answer to your problem.
Compressors on these units runs at only one speed. The change to high cool is only a change in blower speed moving air faster over the cooling coil. I would have the running capacitor for the fan motor checked. A bad capacitor can cause your type of problem. The other problem could be that the high speed winding in the fan motor is bad. Try it operation in the fan only position through the two speeds. If it works in the low and high speed for fan only your problem could be in the selector switch.
Pls check the following....
1) Fix the wire connector to Reversing vale
2) Check the Capacitor if this a low capacitance or (open) not function using Multi-tester.
3) Check the Selector switch if this is not function using Multi-tester . or check the PCB Board (if electronic your units) replaced the Board.
If not yet,go to the nearest repairman to repair that units.
