If the AC compressor was working full time including when the heat was on in the winter, this would certainly cut short the life span of the compressor. Usually, the compressor won't come on unless climate control is calling for AC. If this was the case, the issue is more likely the climate control itself, either a sensor or the whole unit. Should have been caught when you had it diagnosed in the winter if this was when you had it in the shop. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

There are a few possibilities. Blown fuse to the compressor clutch, bad clutch, seized compressor, broken belt, low system pressure, or a rock through the coils in front of the radiator causing a leak. Take it to a reputable mechanic for repairs.

2003 cadillac cts will not blow hot air, but my air condition blow cold air


Is the engine temperature at the proper point?
Since the AC works, I assume the fan is blowing. This means I would look at the temperature sensors and control unit next. Try varying the temperature setting way up to see if there is a point where it starts working.
