Engine cuts off when air conditioning is turned on, won’t restart until you pull the ignition switch relay

(2001 Nissan Xterra)
The engine cuts off when the car ac is turned on, and won’t start again until the ignition switch relay is pulled and replaced. I have tried this with the ac belt on, with it off, and with the ac compressor disconnected. Is this a problem with the ac switch? Computer? short in the system somewhere? After the engine cuts out, everything has power, but it won’t turn over until I pull that relay

You might as well take this one on into your local auto repair facility - we could fill up this page and a couple more with meaningless suggestions and online guesses of which neither is going to be beneficial at all.

Good luck!

A failure of this nature simply has to be diagnosed *hands-on* using proper equipment and techniques - there is no repair protocol for this issue.
