No it does not. The heater system works from a small radiator in side the cabin in a box with the blower motor. The compressor runs off the motor and is responsible for the cold air in the cabin. You may be confused because in climate control vehicles the compressor is running all the time and you vary the cold air by opening up the tap to the heater core in side thecar

My ac compressor is grinding but for now will a smaller Serpentine belt work to bypass if until I I get a new one my car is a 2004 dodge grand caravan sxt 3.8 v6 allwheel drive


The short answer is no.
You need the compressor in place to make the belt run the water pump in the right direction.
You can get a used compressor that has a working clutch and not put freon in it if necessary.

Therm. is being held open causing the engine to not heat up to a full 190 degrees. make sure you put in a 190 degree therm. and unhook the negative battery cable for at least 5 minutes to clear the code. the system could need a flush too, with over 100,000 miles or 5 years

Fogged up windows


Are you using the fresh air option ?
If you are, you could have excessive moisture inside the cabin. Running the hvac on defrost should kick on the ac compressor and bring in fresh air too.

A/C and heating core


The leaking heater core won't keep the compressor from working.
You say the ac system is charged, but the compressor won't come on ??
The compressor has to run to charge the system, otherwise you will only get half a can of freon to go in. The system holds 3 or 4 cans when empty.
The low pressure switch has to be jumped to make the compressor run to take the first two cans of freon.

My front air bower for my ac stopped working my rear ac works I have a 2007 grand caravan help air blower or compressor?


if you have cold air in the rear then it isn't the a/c compressor. if no air comes out of the front vents the it is either the blower motor or the blower motor resistor.

We have a 2007 grand caravan a/c problem. yes it does front and rear heat and air. One day the air worked the next it didn't. Had the coolant checked (freon) it's fine checked the fuses and...


Check the cut out switches in the A/C system.
Id take wires and apply 12 vdc to the compressor terminals to see if compressor clutch engages.
If it doesn't then you may need new clutch kit.
If it does, then you need to find the switch(s) that allow voltage to reach compressor and test them.

Hope this helps...
