A/C compressor not engaging

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had an A/C warning light due to hot engine.  I replaced both the temp. sensors and the compressor is not turning on.  Is there a relay that has been tripped to reset the a/c?  Vehicle is a 2013 chevy Cruze with thw 1.4 turbo

Nothing to reset the A/C. This requires diagnostics to find out why the compressor isn't engaging. Could be low refrigerant, high pressure, bad clutch, blow fuse, etc. See this post for a checklist of things that prevents AC cluth from engaging. https://ricksfreeautorepairadvice.com/compressor-clutch-not-engaging/
