The # 1 cause of the ac compressor clutch not engaging is low refrigerant levels. There is a pressure sensor in the lines that will signal to the PCM (computer) tat the system is low and will then prevent the clutch coil from being engaged. Now it could be something else, but have a shop first check and add refrigerant to the proper level. If it now comes on, then you probably have a slow leak in the system and leak tests will need to be performed.

If the system is full, then the other causes could be a blown # 62 fuse in the under hood fuse box, or the internal relay in te fuse box (PDC). Or maybe a failed compressor clutch (not as common)
