I replaced the dash and frame which required the wiring harness to be removed. I hooked everything back. But I get a code about A/C relay and the compressor wont come on. Is there another connection other then the control panel?

Okay, below is the description of the 645. Did you verify powers to the AC clutch relay?

SYMPTOM
P0645 - A/C CLUTCH RELAY CIRCUIT

WHEN MONITORED
With the ignition key in the RUN position and battery voltage above 10.4 volts.

SET CONDITION
An open or shorted condition is detected in the A/C clutch relay control circuit.

POSSIBLE CAUSES
- A/C clutch relay
- A/C clutch relay circuit wiring harness intermittent defect
- A/C clutch relay circuit wiring harness observable defect
- A/C clutch relay control circuit shorted to ground
- A/C clutch relay control circuit open
- Fused ignition switch output circuit open
- Fused ignition switch output circuit high resistance
- Powertrain Control Module

443

This is an evap purge valve issue. Verify power to the purge valve.

SYMPTOM
P0443 - EVAP PURGE SOLENOID CIRCUIT

WHEN MONITORED
At ignition key ON and battery voltage greater than 10.4 volts (during initialization or power-up).

SET CONDITION
After arming conditions are satisfied: not powering down, not already in limp-in, time since last solenoid activation > 72 micro seconds. PCM will set a trouble code if the actual state of the solenoid does not match the intended state, on two consecutive key cycles.

POSSIBLE CAUSES
- Fused ignition switch output circuit open
- Evaporative purge solenoid
- EVAP purge solenoid circuit wiring harness & connector intermittent defect
- EVAP purge solenoid circuit wiring harness & connector observable defect
- EVAP purge solenoid control circuit shorted to ground
- Evaporative purge solenoid control circuit open
- Powertrain Control Module
