what happened? did it seize up? that would indeed be a problem, because the belt would not turn- short answer, not knowing the problem, yes, you can run a car without a compressor- but you won't have any AC

For the air conditioning, yes. But you'll need a shorter serpentine belt. The other option is get a bypass pulley kit. You can remove the compressor, install the kit, and use the same size serpentine belt. But your A/C won't work. That's the only downfall. HTH. -Jim
