The supercharger will not engage.  Is there a fuse or a power source to make it work?

The supercharger is running if the engine is running, if you think it is not working then check for a stuck diverter valve, if it is stuck open then the super charger is venting all of the pressure away from the engine.

Make sure all is electrical connections are connected correctly. Did you connect the "waste gate" to the engine vacuum source ? Check all fuses in the fuse block (if the car was originally built with a supercharger). If your just adding it on to the car there is electrical connections that need to be made, vacuum connections that need to be made and is the ECU programmed correctly ?
