Check down on the passenger side under the glove box. There should be a set of vacuum lines that come through the firewall. Those were disconnected on mine and cause only my defrost vents to work.

Check your freon pressure level. No or very low freon will not allow the compressor to engage thanks to switches in the system which cut power to the compressor to prevent failure. The Defrost only setting means you are not getting vacuum from a source to operate the vacuum solenoids. Defrost is a default no vacuum setting. Check the fuses, vacuum pump, reservoir, hoses and finally the selector switch.

Try removing the clutch and take out the washer and put it back on. My act would not engage until i removed my washer then it worked great. All the shops said I had a bad compresor and it was that stupid spacing the whole time.
