One of the wires in the car harness should go directly to ground(*). You don't need that wire as a one-wire compressor is internally grounded. Connect the other wire, the "live" wire from the harness, to the compressor wire.

(*) Make sure that is really the case. If there is a switch in the "ground" wire, you will be bypassing it with a one-wire conversion. That would result in losing a safety feature.
