Default 06 STI A/C - compressor won't start. air blows. heat works.

Any ideas as to what the cause of this could be? Belt failure? Fuse (I hope it's this simple). The compressor failed?

Just not sure where to even start looking. I've got zero experience with A/C work.

First you need a refrigerant charge. Hook up a set of gauges and see if you have any pressure in your lines.

Thanks, will do. Should I buy lines/gauges at Autozone or just take the car to a shop? I don't mind working on it.

Nothing wrong with having your own set of gauges. You might be able to rent some from Autozone and save yourself some money.
