Default '06 AC compressor issue

I have an '06 limited and it seems my AC compressor isn't coming on. It started off with the high pressure hose having a leak so I changed it out, refilled the coolant, and now it seems the compressor isn't coming on at all. I tried the LPS trick with a paperclip and got nothing. I located the HPS and because of where it is I can't tell if I'm making a good connection with it to tell if that switch is out either. The fan is definitely working, but I changed the 50amp fuse just to be sure. Still nothing. Everything was working fine until the high pressure hose and coolant leaked out in the beginning. Is there another fuse somewhere I should be looking for? Is there something better I can do to tell if the HPS is bad? Any suggestions would be helpful.

How much freon leaked out? The freon contains PAG oil, and if it all leaked out and the compressor ran dry, it likely siezed.
