Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
There are many things that will prevent an a/c compressor from engaging. Low system charge, the a/c transducer, and an inaccurate ambient temperature reading would be the most common causes of the compressor not engaging, low charge being the most likely. If you haven't checked system charge that will be the first step.
If pressures are good then the next step will be to compare actual pressure on a gauge against the transducer's signal to see if it's correct. If the transducer isn't correct then it's wiring will need to be tested before condemning the transducer.
