Codes will not set for this kind of concern. Check the cycle switch to make sure it's not an open circuit.

where is the cycle switch located?
ANSWER by on June 27, 2011
The system protects itself by not allowing the compressor to engage if the refrigerant is low. There is a low pressure switch that does this is located in the passenger side strut tower to chassis leg area, two wires on it black and a black /light green wire. A company called Alldata has great information on line that is inexpensive to buy that has vehicle specific test information and wiring diagrams.
