ok so we can do two things, jump the relay to see of the compressor comes on and if not we check the fuse and the connection at the pump to see if there is power present. do you know how to jump a relay or jump across terminals 87 and 30 to apply power to the consumer?

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 1 year ago.

the fuse is the middle orange 40 amp fuse of the three up in the front of the passenger side fuse box in the engine bay and the relay is the first relay behind the orange fuses , when you pull it up there are letters that designate the position and that relay is position "O" so you know you have the correct one. use a wire and jump 87 to 30, if you look on the bottom of the relay you will see the numbers and the terminals that correspond to 87 and 30 are the ones that you need to jump power across . so you simply use a wire and a terminal and put it in the fuse box one end in each , so one end in 30 and the other is in 87.
