Default A/C Compressor not running

I Have a 2001 PT and the other day the compressor just stopped working. The relay and fuse check out ok. This unit has always run cold and not without any warning it's just not kicking on. Any ideas?

Just a little low in R134a and the high pressure switch will stop the compressor from running. Check your levels. OR, it could be the high pressure switch itself or the low pressure/recycling switch or even the compressor burning out. Take it to a professional shop that deals in auto A/C. Some check the system for free but you don't always have to go by their recommendation of what they say.

Thanks for the reply, sounds like what I will have to do. The funny this is the compressor is not engaging at all. Worked in the morning but not working when the car was restarted in the afternoon.
