Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When you press the A/C button on the dashboard the compressor doe not come on. When I put a jumper on the MG Relay the compressor runs and cold air comes out. It works great. SO what turns on the Relay? Is this a computer issue?

I replaced the relay but the compressor still does not come on. I know whatever turns on the relay is the problem.
