Alright lets see I have a 1993 ford taurus sho mtx, 3.0L dohc. I have been having problems keeping the car running I brought it to the ford dealer to get my codes ran, they told me that it was my ccrm(constant control relay module), and my camshaft position sensor, I replaced both of these, the car ran great for about a week then out of no where the car wouldnt start. So I checked to see if I had spark (wild guess) sure enough it was orange spark so I replace my plugs and wires same thing orange spark still. So I replaced my ignition coil and BAM! Car started right up drove it for about another week, then all of a sudden it quit running agian, I jumped it using my wifes car and it started it ran for 5 min and quit battery died wouldnt start back up, finnally I just replaced today my alternator and the battery and still nothing it just cranks but doesnt start, I am pulling my hair out with this car does anybody have any solutions plz help

When you turn the defroster on, the AC compressor is also turned on (just like the AC) to help dehumidify the air. Thus it cleans the windshield faster.

Ok I get how the compressor works but is it bad. I'm stumped on why it would make my car stall out. What would happen if I unplugged the electrical connector

If it runs with the AC / DEF off, then if you disconnect the wire to the AC clutch, it shouldn't kill the engine. However, this will have an affect on how well the defroster works. It will take longer to defrost the windshield.

Try it and let me know how it goes.

I unplugged the compressor and your right about it taking awhile to defrost but its worth it my car does not die when I turn on the defrost thanks. I have one more question, where is my heater core located at and how do I replace it step by step directions would help I have never replaced one before. I know its on the passenger side inside the car by the dash I dont know what it looks like tho

I hate to say it but for me to explaine how to remove it via the internet allows too much room for error. I would be concerned to miss something not being there. Therefore, I recommend getting a good repair manual that provides step by step instructions with pictures to help identify parts.

Honestly, I use Mitchel on line. It is specific if you look for the details. If you go to "repair manuals" under the site menu, they offer it for a fee. However, it is cheaper than getting another manual.

Let me know if it helps.
