I have a 1996 Taurus 3.0l Vulcan engine, and I want to disable the A/C for
the winter months, so I can enjoy more cabin heat. I found out that when you
select the defrost, defrost/floor, floor, or vents/floor setting, the heat
output is lessened because the blowing air is mixed with air from the A/C.
This is so the blown air is de-humidified...great idea, but the blown air is
considerably colder than if you select the" vents only" setting, which gives
you direct outside air that is heated, and is not mixed with the A/C.
So....if there is a way to simply disable the A/C, all blowing air
selections will be heated outside air, which will give you hotter air for
your feet and the defrost.
Now, if there is an electrical plug to disconnect the A/C, where would I
locate it under the hood? I'll just re-connect the plug in the spring, so I
can have A/C to cool the cabin. Please be specific...a diagram or picture
would be very helpful.
Do you think disconnecting this plug will set off any trouble codes, or will
do any harm to the A/C system?
I'm freezin' up here in Canada, and we can use all the heat we can get.
