You can take the nut off the end of the compressor and remove the clutch and easily fix this, check first all by removing the serpentine belt, typically is a square hole in the idler bearing (which I suspect is the culprit or the Alternator and not the Compressor but slightly maybe.) so get a ratchet without a socket should fit into the square hole in the idler bearing, this is spring loaded and you push backwards until the belt loosens enough to remove from a top pulley and oh, you gonna get dirty and I had to make my own tool to do this with a steel ruler, a broken ratchet tip welded to the end of the ruler but tools are available if the space is tight as can be in the front part of the engine (passenger side typically). Note the exact position of the belt, take pics of it maybe.,
After belt removed spin pulleys especially the idler and alternator to hear noises and vibration - idler bearings usually can be removed from attached bracket once removed ffrom car typically and the bearing can be found for 25.00 or a used one but who trusts used when costs aren't that bad and a damaged idler or alternator can cost you lots in broken down time, towing and danger if cold and stranded. The bearings in Alternator can be changed and availabe for 5 to 10 each, photos of dissassembly and scratch marks on side of alt joints keeps things simple.
If changing bearings check brushes and chev use to sell nice brushes or rescue from used junk.
One puts a needle or the end of a wire into holes at the end of the brushes to keep the brushes back while you assemble. make sure the wires to brushes dont ground out along the way and nice square ends,dont lose the springs behind the brushes.
clean the armature (or is it stator) where the brushes contact with a file as it spins in a drill or quickly around with some 220 sandpaper and scrape out between the brass sections where the brushes contact the armature.
check that the shaft that goes into the bearing isn't too loose and put touch of locktite on shaft to keep bearing from slipping on shaft once assembled and spinning at high speeds this prevents shaft from getting torn up in a bearing failure.
clean, paint outside and reassemble. dont' put pressure on inside part of bearing only the external edge but shouldn't be issue with this.
Some alternators have to be desoldered to take apart but not typical. Is good to replace the Diode or regulator and clean area so it grounds properly and use dialectric to ground and on connections this prevents arcing and overheating and future problems.
Consider HHO as an alternative to fossil fuels.
Consider Energy Free or Over Unity Generators and Super-Capacitors as an alternative to Batteries and for Electric Cars
instead of lead acid batteries.

Cooling fan for a 1998 GRAND MARQUIA

check to see if there is voltage coming to the fan, check to see if it changes when the engine gets warm indicating that the sensor is working and sending a signal to the fan, if it does change and the fan does not come on then it is the fan itself

The back window defroster turns off, when it gets to hot (about an hour or so). Unless there is an electric windshield heater, all there is, is the warm air for the front heater. If the car is run on low rpm or mostly downhill, there will be not much warm air being produced since the engine does not warm up.
Another possibility is, that the thermostat for the circulation of the radiator cooling fluid does not open, either because the engine is cold or, in case the engine is warm (if the stopped engine, right after driving the car for 5 minutes, can be touched without getting burned, the engine is not getting warm), the thermostat is not working properly, or the car is low on radiator coolant liquid.

2000 honda crv engine

coil, stator, or wire to ground and to kill switch, it is grounding out somewhere - remove from coil to test.that.
Get inline spark tester at princess auto cheapie 6.00 can, or 10 for a good one. spark plug, timing, head gasket burn valve, hard to tell without compression test. if low put cap of oil in cylinder and if goes up is rings, if stays low (under 50lbs should be 90.) if stays low is a valve or head-gasket.
Check plug if dry when trying to start vehicle with choke on then remove spark plug and inspect it.
is carb or fuel problem if dry, is electrical if wet!
check fuses, and stuff and wires but probably a CDI unit to control the spark, or if old is a set of points and condensor and the spark must be triggered by a CDI, a lobe, or a coil CDI unit combo.
The coils on stator send 12 volt, coil to sparkplug send 20,000 volt and the gap in points or ruluctors should be set properly, typically stator to reluctor is set by a book of matches not folded but put piece carboard in between,spark plug gap say double that..
I suspect without more input fuel or spark. if the engine wont turn over the fuel to oil mixture wasnt enough, or the oil injector for fuel mixture if two stroke maybe clogged and may destroy your engine.
I don't suspect this but giving things to consider later.
Some bikes there is wires in a rubber plug as a chaijn indicator and the chain can break this connection, not sure about 4x4 though.

try checking all vacuum lines for cracks especially around intake.
Check wiring for frays corrosion in the intake area, especially the hose to air cleaner. and remove air cleaner or replace temporarily.
when it wont start, remove the MAP sensor vehicle will run rough but will start.
Depending on where the fuel mixture codes are coming from, if is from the Catalytic converter then could be injector stuck open, lots of fuel and black or white smoke when it starts finally.
Could pull plugs out and see if they are wet or dry after it wont run but wont start.... If wet, then is electrical, if dry then it is fuel issue.
Check also around the ECM or computer in your vehicle for broken or lumps in wires from corrosion or overheating up to a foot of the cpu if the harness to it is rubbing against something and grounding out wirtes.
check the ground to the engine by hooking up a new ground wire to the motor from the battery and again to the body!
switch same type relays in the Power Distribution Unit under hood usually near battery.
Just some typical routes to take for this problem.
Don't overfill your gastank as it gets in the Evap system and ruins it.
If you get an inline spark tester 5 to 10 bucks at princess auto in Canada this will easily tell you if you have spark to the plugs.
Check plugs for proper gaps, paint or oil on outside will allow spark to jump and wont run motor.
A broken or damaged Crank sensor usually on the Harmonic balancer and that's the big pulley on the front bottom of your motor.
The crank sensor is probably located next to that pulley.
if tested, all sensors have specific readings that they must indicate if tested with an ohm meter.
Dunno about the USA but in Canada Canadian Tire sells manuals with the ohm reading specs.
If the security code is malfunctioning you have to reset that usually by turning the key to on position for 20 mins maybe an hour.
There is a 20 .00 blue-tooth thing you can buy on ebay and your android phone with the software, now becomes a code reader, code resetter, and a tester, and more.

That is most likely the control transformer - it drops the 240vac to 24vac for the thermostat, and the run contactors. The transformer may have a loose lamination - not a problem, unless you are bothered by the noise.
