Naw, those first three settings from the left (with the snow flakes) are A/C.

You have it set at cold air on the dash vents in that pic. I find it works better in the recirculate position. (1 back to the left)

I modified that. Now I have a button with that I can engage/disangange the A/C in all settings.

Ohh. that's cool. Does it disengage the compressor when you put the defrost on too? If so, share! Heck, share anyway!

There are two ways:

When you remove the AC dash panel there is a small connector behind the switch with 3 cables.

Thick black cable: To the switch
Thick green cable in the middle: blower on/off
Thin green cable: A/C on or off

Way 1:

Install a switch in the thin green cable and you can turn off the A/C in the first 3 settings with the switch.

Way 2:

Cut the little green cable and put a wire from the thick black cable (use such a thing http://www.jeep-community.de/images/stromdieb.jpg) to the green thin cable (not the part at the connector). In that new cable you have to install a switch. Now you can turnon/off the A/C in every setting.

That is the absolute worst type of inline connector to use there is. http://www.jeep-community.de/images/stromdieb.jpg

I have mine were I can engage/disengage mine in all setting as well.The reason mine is this way though is when I put the wiring harness to the 99 in my 97 the 99 used the type HVAC panel shown and mine still has the 97 type panel and they wired different so I just ran a switch to my a/c clutch and even then the fan settings were off.The plug-in was the same for the fan setting but I had to switch the wires around because at first the fan was high to low instead of low to high(in other words with the fan setting on low the fan was running high and visversa)

Thanks guys. How about posting; why exactly that type of connector is worst and posting a few ideas that are the best or close to it.

I would better use such a connector than soldering the cables what could break because of vibes.

Mostly because of 2 things that happen when that type of connector is used, #1 the wire insulation is left open for the copper to begin corroding when any moisture is encountered and consequently connection gone. #2 the wire is simply wedged up into a V notch which usually will cut some of the strands and with any amount of vibrations loses connection sooner or later, usually sooner. This is the main reason I don't like anyone doing any kind of electrical work on my vehicles as most people love these kind of connectors as they are quick and simple to use. On most of my vehicles that needed this type of work, I either like to try to connect where the wire terminates or use a terminal block and use soldered wire terminal ends.

I have had to chase too many problems with these type of connectors. I guarantee if you soldered the connection instead of using this connector, you would be much better off. If you are worried about vibes then this the last type to use.
