WHY DOESN'T MY AC COMPRESSOR COME ON AT THE SWITCH EVEN THOU

Toyota Corolla

On my 1993 toyota corolla (1.8 liter - 120,000 miles) the ac compressor clutch burned and I replace the compressor with a new switch. I vacuum the system and filled with freon. I turn the switch on and the compressor will not come on. I applied 12 volts at the compressor clutch and it came on. I tried at the switch again and even bought a new switch and the compressor still does not come on. I checked fuses and still the compressor did not come on. Is it possible I missed a fused, or fusible link that is hidden are in an unseen location? Please help me!
I would also like to know if a metal timing chain can be put on the corolla instead of a belt.

The compressor requires a correct refrigerant charge providing power to the A/C relay it must be energized and provides power to the compressor. There is also an A/C amplifier in the circuit. Good luck
