Hello, I would like to see if I could help you with this. Have you tried putting a pressure gauge on the A/C system to see if it is still charged? This would be the first thing I would want to check since a low charge level due to a leak is the most common reason for the A/C compressor to not kick in. You could try doing a visual inspection of the A/C lines and check for any that look oil soaked as that would be an indication of leak. If you do find a low charge level and can't visually see a leak, fill the system back up with R134-a that contains a dye and pick up a leak detection kit (will have a UV light and some yellow glasses) this will help to locate where the system is leaking at.
