The connector you are referring to changes the air conditioning mode from fresh to recirculating if engine is about to overheat so that some of the air conditioning load (heat build up) is removed to assist the cooling system. (as per factory manual)

If your fresh/recirc does not work I cant see how it could hurt by disconnecting. Just turn off air con if it starts to overheat

Disconnecting would be accomplished by plugging the vacuum hose , not connecting the hoses together as per the (hopefully attached) diagram.
