Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

there are many thing that can prevent the compressor from engaging. If the light is coming on then odds are the control head is good. The problem may be the clutch coil itself, the compressor relay, wiring, a bad pressure sensor or switch, a blown fuse, evaporator or ambient temperature sensor signal, or the problem could simply be low charge. The most common cause for a compressor not engaging is low charge.

What model is the vehicle?
