1998 Ford Escort ZX2 - Air Conditioning PROBLEM!

Air conditioner blower blows luke warm air. I jumped the compressor straight off the battery, it worked, so the compressor is good. I tried jumping it from the "low-side" but got no results in the compressor turning on. Any answers?
Is there an airconditioning relay in this car? If so its hidden. THANKS GUYS
