This is a faulty fan control amp, also know as the VBC or resistor.

What happens here is when it fails on speed 1 the a/c signal stick kicks on the compressor, but since the compressor signal feeds through speed one when it fails there it causes you to lose the signal at all higher speeds. So the fan will come on, but the compressor is no longer engaged.

I probably see this same scenario about once a month in the summer.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
