Does your A/C have a full charge of 134A refrigerant in it?
Sounds like it's low on charge.
USE ONLY APPROVED REFRIGERANT not those cheap replacements for 134A.
If the refrigerant container shows an explosive warning on it DO NOT USE IT.Those can be butane or propane mixes and if you have an car accident you may not want to be sprayed with those in your car interior if the A/C system is damaged.

You didn't mention if one door or all doors.
If only one door then most likely that door switch.
if none of the doors will make it come on, the see if you have a dome light control as my Kia can be set for all from switch near mirror.
Not thinking a fuse since it will turn on manually.

diode for what

Sorry, you don't. But if your just down to electrical. lay the harness out across the engine. Injector and coil plugs are the same, but usually won't stretch to the next part. The rest of the will not plug into another sensor/actuator.
