Unhappy electrical wos with vintage air

Hi All,
I have a problem with a generation 4 vintage a/c system I am not getting any voltage to my binary switch.If i go under the dash and probe the relay for the compressor i get the sound of the a/c clutch engaging .I have a good charge in the system.I am out of ideas.I also don't know if there is thermostat in the system or where it would be at.
thanks as always

The thermostat is your temperature control switch. It has a sensor that is inserted into the evaporator.
You can go on vintage air website and download the installation instructions including wiring diagrams,

rob, the owner of VA typically answers any call for tech support and is very knowledgeable on his systems
VA offers some of the best tech support and warranty service i've experience, like he actually cares about his product
i'd start there

probing the relay and getting power, sounds like you have a loose wire on the relay base
