My nephew dropped a wrench on the car battery. Right after that the ac and radio completely stopped working. I rewired to get the radio back up, but no clue for the ac.

The module still working as far as blowing fan air from the outside and the heat does

The ac relay will be under hood in fuse panel,or may be in trunk beside battery.
