Have you tried supplying power to the compressor and see if it engages if not the compressor clutch has a problem. If it does engage you will have to do some diagnostic tests and follow trouble shooting flow charts. You will need a wiring diagram, good volt/ohm meter and information. Alldata is probably the best source for information. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info. and get an online repair manual subscription.
