I unplugged the wire, replaced the fuse and started the car. Then, I turned on the ac button and the fuse blew. Do I need to replace the whole compressor with ac clutch or just the ac clutch? Thanks so much.

It is NOT the blower.
The problem is in the dashboard A/C blower switch. The switch is connected to a tri-resistor (3 resistor coils) which will vary the motor speed. Cost is about $10.
If you want to repair it yourself, you should purchase a repair book for your car at any ayto supply store ($30) or go to the reference department in your local Library (you have a card, right?)
You cannot check out a reference book, but you can photocopy the necessary pages (10 cents, maybe a quarter).
The repair procedure is not too difficult.
Total cost: $12.60 (including copies) or $45.
Don't be talked into replacing the fan motor.
Hope this helps!

Quick tip that might help. Under the glove box is the blower fan, check the plugs that run to it make sure they have a good connection. then give the blower fan a little tap, mine was just stuck. could have been from dust or something. Or a plug might have been loose.

An O2 sensor code is a tricky one. It could mean SEVERAL different things, and I know how bad it sucks to hear this, but your best bet is to take it in and have a diagnostic ran on it at either a dealer or a good mechanic shop with a computer they can hook up to it. I had an "O2" code come up a while back on another car I used to have, and literally spent weeks and hundreds of dollars trying to fix it, and never did. Finally out of desperation took it in, paid the $90, and they found the problem and fixed it in like 30 minutes. Something I would have never even thought of was causing it (can't remember off the top of my head). After that I stopped wating time and money on check engine lights. One comes on in my car, I take it to have it ran for free at and auto parts store just to make sure it's not a loose gas cap or something, just to get an idea of what I'm looking at, then go and make an appointment to have to hooked up to a diagnostic computer to track down the problem. Good luck, and hope this helps save you some time and money.
