2005 PT Cruiser - No AC - Ideas Please

Would anyone have thoughts on the next thing I should try trouble shooting on my cars AC?

I have a 2005 PT Cruiser not a turbo. 

Started with the heat AND AC not working. 

*Checked all fuses, high/low radiator relays, and the low pressure switch was replaced in the fall (that didn’t fix it then either)

*Thermostat was also replaced in the fall.

*Replaced the connector behind the AC/normal air switch because part of it was melted. 

*Checked freon level and it is good. 

*Radiator fan wasn’t kicking in on a cold start with AC turned on. Was going to replace the fan but when I went to unplug the fan there was no connector 🤦🏼‍♀️someone had wired it into the other wires (no connector there either) and a wire had come unplugged. Redid the connection and it works perfect (cold start, AC on the fan blows). 

*In the last three years the following has been replaced water pump, the timing belt, serpentine belt, radiator, and probably something else I’m forgetting.

*The heat works now but the AC is still won’t. 

*I can hear the compressor kicking in now. Before the fan was fixed it would kick on then right back off again. 

I would just continue to suck it up and roll the windows down but I need to take my Mom somewhere in a week and the heat won’t be good on her. I also can’t afford to take it to a shop. 

Thanks for any ideas you might have.
