Default No A/C on non-turbo '01

We've had our first few hot days and guess what? No A/C! At the end of last summer I had a/c issues that were caused by a bad radiator fan. Replaced the fan and everything was fine. Later in the fall, I replaced the timing belt. I was able to do it without disconnecting the a/c system (just pulled things out of the way). I can't recall if I ever ran the a/c after that.

Anyway, right now when I turn on the a/c there is absolutely no response. There is no sound of the clutch engaging. I haven't noticed the condenser fan turning on either. I thought that the coolant might be low, so I put on my charging kit, turned on the a/c full blast, and...nothing. No coolant went into the system. The gauge is in the red, I'm guessing b/c the compressor isn't running.

I checked the 10A fuse and relay under the hood and they are good.I am wondering if lifting and dropping the motor during the timing belt swap may have done something to the compressor. My next plan is to get under the car to check the wiring. I might even run a jumper to the compressor to check to see if it functions. Any other thoughts would be a help!

Thanks everyone!
