You might be low on refrigerant. The system is designed to prevent the compressor from switching on if you are low enough on refrigerant that the compressor would be damaged. HTH. -Jim

Like Jim said, could be refridgerant has leaked out, it could also be that the clutch setup on the pump that allows it to free wheel when not in use has a short in the circuit or has just gone bad. I can't tell you for sure why there are 4 relays in the a/c system but if one is bad it can definately cause an issue as well.
