Hint if compressor won't start it may be out of Freon, if that is case then there is a leak and should be fixed. See pic ac compressor relay behind right headlight

It may have a slow leak which is seasonal that is quite common. If not recharged eventually to low for compressor to start. Your pic is nonspecific as to which relay is compressor
