A bad pressure switch would cause this problem. Also a temp sensor could also cause the compressor not to turn on. You have a control problem if you can jump the relay. Check the fuse for the ac compressor as well. You need a high end scan tool to see data of the temp sensors, and to scan the hvac module for codes stored that could be affecting this as well. You will also need a multi meter and will need to do some tests of the circuit.
