2008 Civic AC not always turning on

I have a 2008 Civic LX. The AC will not always turn on. Sometimes it turns on just fine. Other times it wonít turn on at all or start working all of a sudden while Iím driving. It doesnít matter what setting the fan speed or temp setting itís at or if itís cold or warm outside. I checked the relay, replaced the blower resistor and the blower motor itself, but no luck. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

free fix is to remove a shim from the clutch.
this has been covered countless times if you want to search for more info

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

I checked the relay,
How did you check this?
Relay problems are quite common, but not the only possible problem.

I swapped it with another identical relay switch. Nothing changed.
