Sounds like a low charge condition. Low pressure safety may be disabling the compressor due to low refrigerant. For a 99, seals may be failing and losing system charge which is pretty typical. They sell gauge kits at any automotive store to check pressures. You're probably going to need a few cans of 134A refrigerant and a seal conditioner.
