The A/C clutch is not spinning, I checked the CCRM and all solder looks fine. I really need a wiring diagram for the A/C system cause the IDIOT who had the car before me jerry-rigged some sort of relay with wires coming from I have no idea where, some of them are even old speaker wire coming from the passanger side fire wall to the relay by the drivers headlight. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can get a Ford wire book from Ebay for a very resonable price. It is likely that the system is just low on refrigerent.

UPDATE AGAIN

Fixed leak, still no cold air, but holds charge and clutch spins.

Still working the mystery relay setup. Has a wire goin to low press switch, a GN/BK which is supposed to go from press switch to PCM, and a BK/Y wire which I can't figure out, and right next to it is a white/grey wire connected to a green/red wire, what the heck did this guy do?

If the system is full and the compressor is running but you have no cold air then something else is wrong. The orphus tube could be clogged or the compressor is shot. It could also be that the climate cable is disconnected but then you would not be able to adjust the temp at all.

Here is a better schematic. The one I scanned on the other page doesn't show everything.

Since you had a leak, it sounds like the system is compromised. It'll need to be vacuumed down to remove the moisture from the system before you recharge it. The compressor doesn't compress air, only R-134a. Replace the orafice tube as well.

Is your car a 98 or very early 99 model? That wiring may be the late model PCM swap.
