My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
The ac compressor itself (the clutch part of the compressor that turns the compressor shaft) has most likely seized and the compressor needs replaced.You can usually try and turn the compressor clutch by hand,it may be hard to turn but it should turn with the engine off.If it does not move at all the compressor has seized and it needs replaced.
Thanks Pete
