BTW, the A/C does function during the winter, especially in defrost mode. The air is cycled through the evaporator to essentially dry it out and dehumidify the interior of the car. So, don't be surprised if you find your A/C working in the winter. Also, another thought. If something stays engaged or a whirring sound is heard (unusual sound for A/C..Are you sure?? Take a look at the compressor and see if the clutch driven disk is turning). If it is and you've shut everything off, you have to suspect the dash control unit. Remember, looks aren't everything. This unit is moderately tough to get at an test, so maybe you should get a manual before you dive into the canyon of electrical/vacuum control components. Good Luck
