Having trouble with the ac clutch engaging on a 2008 honda

Customer Question

Customer: Hi having trouble with the ac clutch engaging on a 2008 honda crv the compressor is new as is the clutch it seems to be a power supply or relay issue if i jumper the wire coming from the overheating sensor on the compessor every thing comes on and funtions and cools otherwise no ac fan or clutch engagement. I have swapped relays and checked the fuses still no go.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: If you turn on the ac in the car it only blows warm air and the compressor and the ac fans dont come on. has proper freon level and new compressor and clutch if i jumper the clutch it comes on and cools but not the cooling fan, if I ground the temperature sensor on the compressor the clutch and cooling fans come on and work well.
