06 Ford Explorer dies when AC is turned on......

Ok....so I noticed about a week ago that the ac that was blowing to the 2nd and 3rd row seats wasn't blowing cold air at all. Then while driving the next day I noticed this loud whinning noise coming from my truck while accelerating with the ac on. As soon as I turned it off, it was fine. Then 3 days ago while sitting in my freaking driveway I started my truck and as soon as I kicked on the AC it killed instantly. Could this be the compressor?? I am losing my mind with it be hot and humid....plus having 3 kids fussing. And the dealership is not open again until Monday and who knows how long they are going to take. Someone please help

Sounds like your compressor has gone south, but to make sure, try electrically disconnecting the compressor and then turn the AC on. If the truck runs normal and just doesn't blow cold air, you probable need a new compressor.
