24v not present at terminal block or tstat wire leading to condenser outside?

He has said that the air handler does run, so I'm thinking either bad stat, or bad wire between stat and air handler.
If he has an extra spare wire in his cable, he could easily hook that in place of the yellow at each end and then he would at least be able to narrow it down to a final problem.
Yeah hopefully he has the kind that you can remove the cover and test the wires in place. Otherwise the stats are somewhat difficult to check. But if thats the case simply jumping R to Y and seeing if the cond unit came on would tell him if it's the stat or not.
