Default Ac Compressor Wont Turn On.

So I have 01 2.5rs subaru Impreza. The AC compressor attempts to spin but wont actually turn on!! I checked the relays and the fuses they're all good. I bypassed the relay with a paperclip it turns on blows cold air for about 2 minutes before pressure builds up and blows freon out of somewhere. I replaced the AC relay with the horn relay and it worked again for about 2 minutes before shutting off. Now It will not work at all. Any ideas? Someone mentioned that my high pressure switch may have gone bad and someone else mentioned it just may be the clutch in the compressor.

Low freon stops the compressor from spinning. Check/fill and if this fixes it, you likely have leak. #1 leak spot is short hose going into compressor.

Get it filled, and when they do, have them put the dye in it so you can see the leak if it has one.
