    MirageRally,
    . . . . I don't know. When I pulled the A/C Relay in my G4 the A/C quit working. I then put in the Relay that came with the Fog Lamps and the A/C started working again. I didn't pull any fuses. What year and model is your Mirage?
    GOD Bless and Thanks,

    l may have to pull the unit off the dash and trace the wires...pulled both and l can confirm it still works with both the relay and fuse pulled out....weird...going to pull off the ac unit and see if l can wire it off...or going to look at other fuses.

    If you disable the A/C some day, I would be concerned about the seals & everything in your system. A/C systems shouldn't sit unused for extended periods. I don't use A/C very often, but I run it for a short period every couple weeks even in the winter.

    I believe there is a way to turn off the A/C without pulling a fuse, but someone with auto climate controls will have to point that out to you.

    Yeah-when l pulled the fuses and relay and l still heard it come on, l just laughed and said "Oh come on man" lol. Wish l had the option when l got it if l could have deleted AC...l don't use it at all. Hopefully someone with auto-climate can help.

    MirageRally,
    . . . . I use my A/C almost continuously. I have already had to change the cabin air filter on my Mirage. I went through 3 fan motors on my 323 and I replaced the fan motor on my Protege once. During the winter I run the A/C compressor at least once a month but during the summer it runs almost all of the time that I am driving. I always run the fan. Mark is correct about the seals on the compressor. The compressor needs to be run at least once a month to keep the front seal proper lubricated. It also needs to be run on occasion to insure that the bearings and vanes are properly lubricated.
    GOD Bless and Thanks,

    MirageRally,
    . . . . I would like to have AutoAir. Maybe we could swap parts? Thoughts anyone?

    Basic,
    . . . . NO! I am afraid that I sold it decades ago. At times I wish that I still had it. With 500 hp it was a really fun car to drive. It would also kill you in heart beat if you got stupid with it.
