There is a low side pressure switch on ac line , low side line, with a test light switch on ac button pressed , do you have power ?
If you unplug the low pressure switch and jump the connector does compressor kicks in?
Has all fuses been checked
How did you recharge it ,using ac machine ,pulled vacuum or just cans from advance auto or auto zone
