2005 Chevrolet Malibu Q&A

2005 Chevrolet Malibu Question: heating and AC

If my AC stops running will I be able to still run the heat until I get the AC repaired? -
Answer 1
When you mean "stops running" you mean doesn't blow cold. I would unplug the a/c compressor so it doesn't engage anymore. Yes you'll have heat without the a/c working. -
Comment 1
How do I unplug the AC compressor and if I go to a shop to have it unplugged, will it cost a lot of money? -
Answer 2
You should be able to run the heat without the AC, they are not tied together by anything, but they use the same blower. -
