Compressor clutch relay bad. Over time and use the compressor clutch relay which is located in the engine compartment fuse/relay box will fail. The relay sends current from the battery to the magnetic clutch which is bolted to the front of the compressor. The clutch engages the compressor. This is a common honda repair issue.
1. Using a scan tool look for A/C switch “ON” and A/C clutch “ON”. If the Engine Control Module (ECM) indicates the A/C switch is on and the A/C clutch is on, then check the A/C compressor clutch relay. The relay is located in the fuse box under the hood, and is the relay in the middle of 3 relays located together and has a snowflake picture on the cover of the fuse/relay box. Swap the relay with the blower motor relay to verify it is not a faulty relay

On these Honda vehicles, if the computer loses it’s idle learn memory for some reason like the battery was disconnected, throttle body cleaned, etc, the idle memory may be lost causing erratic idle speed.
To correct this problem, first, verify that the throttle body and plates are properly cleaned. Then proceed with the idle relearn procedure. This requires the use of a scan tool and should be done by a professional.
