Hello, look for rodent or lawn edger damage to the two thermostat wires at the AC condenser. if there is no damage access those two wires where they connect inside the condensing unit and measure the voltage between them using a multi meter set on AC voltage

We can go from there

There is no damage and no voltage to the wires. Furnace blower is on, AC thermostat is set to cool and well below current temperature. There is no LED error code on the furnace control board. Breaker was not tripped, tired resetting it anyways.There is a black button inside the pannel on the condenser. When i hold it in the condenser will start running. When i let it go it will stop...

I replaced fuse, jumped r & y and AC unit turned on. Call me back when you are free. Thanks

hello again, I tried to call and got your machine, I will try again later,

For now, verify a good yellow wire connection at the thermostat, pull on it to be sure it has not broken under the screw head.

We can go from there
