Many cars can have the ac compressor bypassed. Buying a belt for the same model vehicle without ac should be the correct length for a replacement.

Nothing if the compressor bearings are good. Just unplug the wires at the compressor or pull the fuse. If the compressor is locked up or the bearings are shot, then you need to purchase a belt for a 1997 Pontiac Sunfire that came from the factory without A/C. Install the belt, bypassing the compressor, and just leave the compressor alone.

How do I know if my 1994 Cadillac Fleetwood brougham RWD ac compressor is locked up or just needs freon?

The belt has been squaling for the last 2 days. This morning the compressor pulley locked down and ruined the belt. The belt started smoking. It was blowing hot air and I am sure needed freon before this. I took off the serpentine belt and tried to turn the pulley on the compressor. It is locked down tight. Was there a safety feature on these compressors when they got low on freon, to lock down like this and not turn to prevent burning them up? Would refilling the system with 134A kick it back on?? I did notice the 10 amp fuse blew as well, replaced it and nothing changed. Or is it time for a new compressor?

It probably is the compressor that is locked up. If it is ok until the a/c is turned on, the compressor is locked up. If it is just the pulley bearing a special puller is required to remove the pulley and bearing.
