Default 2006 Civic AC Compressor Clutch Off

AC is not giving cold air on my daughters 2006 Honda Civic. AC compressor clutch is not engaging. I discovered this after trying to add refrigerant and it didn't go in. Checked AC clutch relay by swapping with radiator fan relay, both relays are working. For next step, I want to check the clutch by jumping, but I don't have the diagram. Low refrigerant switch cutting off power to the clutch is also a possibility, but it looked like there was pressure in the system when I tried to add R134a or maybe I didn't read it correctly.
Need a good AC electrical diagram or other helpful info. on how to jump the AC clutch or low pressure switch. Thanks in advance for any help.

Might be able to find technical info:

This path from post 2 in the Downloadable Honda Factory Service Manuals stickied thread is still valid.

The problem turned out to be ac clutch. I ordered replacement, the whole clutch assembly. I downloaded the manual from the above link. It copied a bunch of files to my computer. I unzipped them, but nothing will open that resembles a manual.

Thanks for the info on the manuals. I stopped when I needed to subscribe to something to download the program to unzip the files.
Pretty sure my problem is with the clutch ďair gapĒ. So far, havenít located anyone who will perform anything less than replacing the clutch and compressor assembly. Annoyed.

I ordered complete clutch assembly from Amazon for $49.99 (free shipping). I will do the repair myself. It's not a simple repair, because everything is cramped in and hard to get to, but I am sure I can manage, I done harder repairs. I found electrical schematic for AC system of that car on the web and from there it was very simple to test the clutch.
