AC shuts off after seconds

My AC suddenly stopped working after running for about a month. It is a goodman split system. You can here the thermostat click on but nothing happens. When the AC repairman came out he diagnosed a short in the thermostat wire some place in the wall.

Since then we spliced a wire near the external unit that was frayed. I think the two thermostat wires were touching. Now when I turn on the AC I hear the thermostat click and the interior fan comes on for a few seconds then the unit shuts down. Ideas of what the issue could be?

What unit shuts down....the air handler (interior fan) ?

You had a repairman there to fix this problem......and he did....but it's back after a month ?
Call him back.

Fan on the exterior condenser is not turning i think it is starting to rotate but does not maintain power. Only the interior fan is coming on.

The ac guy never got the unit running he taped over the spot in the thermostat wire that we spiced that is now allowing the interior fan to turn on.

You need to troubleshoot to find out why the condenser fan is not running.
Do you know how to troubleshoot a system?

Call the tech back...
