The AC relay is part of the fuse box integrated power module. It's basically one big fuse with a bunch of fuses in it.

It's not easy to replace, but not impossible either.

Do you have a multi-meter to do some electrical testing?

Any idea why the battery died?

I have one but unfamiliar with its use

You should check to see if the AC clutch is getting a proper power signal to turn on by checking for 12 volts at the AC clutch connector on the AC compressor. Set your meter to DC volts and then put one prong of the meter in one side of the connector and the other prong in the other. This will tell you if you have power from the AC control head to the compressor clutch.
