Quick question on the AC. Right now when I turn the AC on I'm not hearing the familiar click of the compressor coming on.

During my motor rebuild we noticed that the ac condenser had a hole in it so I had it replaced with a brand new OEM part.

The system currently is fully purged/empty. Everything is plugged in as far as I can tell, no codes showing up. I was going to have it refilled with R134a but before doing that I was wondering if not hearing the click/compressor is normal on an empty AC system or whether something has failed/isn't right.

Thanks.

Compressor won't kick on when system is empty or even too low pressure. It is normal.
