Thanks a lot

1) Component and Signal Information
2) Components
3) Relays
4) K19 Relay A/C Compressor

Now the trick is finding where that relay is.

I'll see if I can find it myself, but this is where you would probably want to look.

The + signal just magnetizes the fan clutch to "engage it" so that the drive belt spins it under load. When it doesn't have a signal, it (in a perfect world) has no load on the drive belts.

If it didn't engage when you hit with power, I would have said the clutch is bad because it doesn't engage (which in my experience means your replacing the compressor).
