You can ask as many questions as you want. Honestly, I don't mind. The compressor is located under the hood. It is a belt driven accessory. It will turn all the time, but when you turn the AC on, there is a clutch that will engage and turn the inside pulley on the compressor. You will hear it click when it engages.
Have a helper open the hood, start the engine, and then you watch the compressor as well as listen for a clicking sound when the helper turn the AC on and off.
Let me know what you find.
