Hi. If the system doesn’t see enough pressure, it won’t turn on. If the AC is charged to specification and it still doesn’t turn on, it’s probably going to be a switch in either the AC circuit or the control side for the blend doors inside the dash. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the AC to make sure everything is in working order.
