A/c compressor does not kick on right away

I’m having trouble with my a/c not getting cold sometimes 20 minutes into the drive, it never has ever since I got it, but I have put in a used eatc in about a month back, I’ve visually confirmed ac compressor not engaged for the duration of blowing hot air, but once it kicks in it’s fine does not seem to cycle on and off just stays on, low side pressure hangs out at 50 in a 90 degree day

You actually need high and low side psi to determine what is actually happening.

Try running the EATC self test. You might have a lazy Blend Door Actuator.

An 052 code is: A/C solar radiation sensor circuit short to ground

Has there been any work done to the car recently?

The sensor is in the PATS light in the top of the dash - left side.
