On a 1994 Cavalier can you use a dummy pulley instead of a blown compressor?

If the pulley is seized and you don't want to replace it with a new or reman one, there may be a few options. One is bypass the compressor completely. follow how the belt travels around the pullies, and how it would run if you just don't put it around the compressor. IF the compressor interferes with the travel then you can't. So you may want to consider a used one from a junkyard. If the compressor does not interfere, and the travel direction of the belt is possible, take a string and wrap it around exactly how the belt will go and by pass the compressor. Measure the string and take the original belt to the part store and tell the you want a belt like that but only "what ever the length of the string is" long. Some cars do not offer A/C so there may be no listing for one that doesn't have a/c. If the compressor is seized, replacing the pulley may not be an option. buy a belt for one with no AC there is no way to bypass this i have tried although they sell a pulley called a help pulley for 30.00 i put it in mine works fine

Typical causes of a compressor not running are: low coolant, blown fuse in compressor circuit, bad compressor, bad temperature sensor.

Check for a blown fuse. Also check the wiring connections at the compressor.

If the compressor will not come on at all, it is not because the system needs charging. Check for a blown fuse, disconnected wire at the compressor, or a defective compressor clutch.

check to see if your fuse is blown.

Assuming you are asking about the ac compressor, there would be two possibilities, blown fuse or low on freon.
