Default 2014 Nissan Versa AC Problems

Problem: AC stopped working completely one day, the air temperature never drops below ambient.

Car: 2014 Nissan Versa Note (Hatchback), S plus Trim (Base model + CVT Transmission)
VIN: 3N1CE2CP3EL396716

Troubleshooting: I immediately noticed that the compressor clutch isn’t engaging. The AC switch itself is lighting up. I checked to see if the AC compressor is getting 12V when the AC system is on, it’s not. To rule out a bad compressor/clutch, I ran 12V to it directly, and I could see the clutch engaging.

I checked all fuses for continuity and they are good, including the fusible links. I went to look for the AC Relay thinking it’s the issue.

The relay is not in either on the two fuse box locations on the car. Some diagrams online indicate that it’s under the driver side dash, however when I crawl down there, I don’t see it. I called a dealer and asked their parts department about it, and they couldn’t find an AC Relay part for my VIN.

A redditor suggested that its integrated in the IPDM module, I bought two separate units off of ebay (from different sellers) identical to this one (284B7 1HR0C | NISSAN OEM FUSE RELAY PANEL BOX | eBay), unfortunately it didn’t work.
There have been no check engine lights or codes.

Questions:
1. I still think its an AC relay problem, but I’m not sure where else to look at
2. Not sure what the next thing to diagnose is?

Any other help/tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
