So of all times my air-conditioning in my 2015 Ford Explorer stopped working during the summer

several months ago when I went to turn it on again I noticed that the clutch and compressor was trying to work it was in a twitching motion before it stopped working (happened in a span of ten seconds)

I had manifold gauges hooked up to the truck of which didn’t help me any picture

I took a closer picture of the AC compressor. It looks pretty ratty however that’s just the rubber cover on top of the clutch. I am going to use a paperclip to bypass the relay to see if the clutch actually works.

The good thing is It looks fairly easy to take the compressor off if I need to but I can’t find the electrical connection going to the compressor.

When I went to do the paperclip trick I noticed that the relay wasn’t the type to do that. I am at a complete loss

(UPDATE)

I hooked up another set of manifold gauges. Both lore and high side were about the same ( engine off-69 to 75psi) turned on the truck out the ac on the order remained same (at first 75 but both went up to 82 psi)

I jumped the pressure switch ( pictured). Since it is a three wire switch i jumped the left probes, right probes and lastly the outer probes…. No go! I looked with the uv light, even though I had decent pressure in the system, no dice

I’m at a loss, I’m thinking could be compressor or something electronic
