The car should run okay without the compressor, you just won't have A/C. The cooling fans should still operate with the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. It is also possible that you just need to charge the A/C system. A loud whining noise is indicative of low charge to the compressor.

Ac makes whining noise on a 2004 Pontiac grand prix


Is the whining noise coming from the engine compartment where the compressor is located or is the noise coming from inside the car? If the noise if coming from inside the car it could be your blower. When a blower wears down the bushing is the first thing to wear down and it begins to have play. That makes the blower/fan vibrate making a loud whining noise. Replacing the blower could solve that whining noise.
If the noise if coming from the AC compressor, it also could be a bad bearing within the compressor.

2000 Cadillac DeVille sounds like prop-plane on acceleration


Could be the serpentine belt rubbing on something, but is probably a bearing problem in the belt idler pulley. However, it could be the power steering pump, AC compressor clutch or generator. As the water pump is at the opposite end of the engine, it's probably not that.

My cadillac concours deville say low refrigerant ac compressor off and tried to put some in is there a certain way to do it


Yes, if it is like my 1990 cadillac deville, you must first disconnect the battery for 3 or so minutes and reconnect it to clear the error message and to reset the a/c system so it will turn on when R134a is added under pressure.

Cadillac did that in 1990 so the compressor would not run without refrigerant in the system. It's a safety feature designed to save a compressor if there is a leak in the system.

If you try to add refrigerant without resetting the a/c system, then the compressor will not engage.

I had the same problem with my 98 Cadillac Deville. I changed the power steering pump and the hose that runs to the rack. The problem was solved, loud noises and whining stopped.

I have a loud whining noise coming from my ac compressor. i have a 98 cadillac deville and it makes the whining noise even if the ac is off. it makes that noise the whole time the car is running


The A/C compressor constantly turns because the pulley is connected into the serpentine system. The whining noise is pretty indicative of a low charge in the A/C system. I would start by having your A/C pressure checked and charged if needed.
