this questions is perhaps for a mechanic or an electrician: I have a 1996 Mercury Sable. Since I barely use it, I want to re-purpose it with an interesting experiment:I want to park it near my house and run a 110v power line directly to the air conditioner to run the AC while the engine is off.Since I did a tiny bit of research, I noticed car air conditioners can be a tiny bit complex which is why I listed the specific car above.Thanks for your help

Ask Your Own Mercury Question

Are you trying to run the AC in the car?

without the engine on.

That is not possiable, the AC compressor needs to be turning in order for the AC to cool and the compressor is turned by the engine when its running.

there is no way to make a modification?

No , the AC compressor has to be turning in order for it to cool and without the engine running there is no way to turn the compressor.

Okay, i thought had something to do with an annoying thing my car is doing. when i turn on the car, the shift handle is locked inplace and i can't put it in reverse or drive..

That type of problem has nothing to do with the AC system. The shifter is controlled by the shift lock actuator and it is released for shifting when you apply the brakes. I would start with making sure your brakes lights are working.
