5 amp fuse in passengers fuse panel keeps blowing

The 5 amp fuse that controls the climate control panel (#10) keeps blowing, I have disconnected the blower motor, replaced the blower resistor and climate control panel all with no results. Have lights on the panel but no heat / air or even rear window defrost.Can anyone tell me what else to check (I am at a loss).

    tried this and all checks good, does anything run back into the trunk area? (I have lots of stuff in there).

    does anything in the trunk area receive power from this fuse? I have a lot of tools & stuff in there and maybe something cut a wire?

    You most likely have a pinched wire somewhere causing a short on this ckt. I would start with the ckt on the fuse itself. The climate control wire is wire is RD/YE and the overhead console it is WH/LB.

    Now does it blow the fuse with both of these components disconnected? If it does you will need to check the 2 wires mentioned.1st has anything been added to the vehicle that could have possibly pinched or shorted the harness?

    These 2 ckts leave the fuse panel and goes to the smart junction box on the right side of dash. The climate control ckt is on connector A (black) which is a 36 pin connector and the ckt in question is on pin 9. The overhead console the ckt is on connector F (grey connector) it is a 26 pin connector and the ckt in question is on pin 8.

    Now to check these ckts a little trick I use is to get me 2 wires with alligator clips and a 1157 bulb(like one in the rear tail-lights) and clip wires on each side of bulb.(I use a bulb like this so I can put a load on the ckt,a regular test light doesn't load the ckt).Discconnect the ckt on both ends so that there is nothing in the ckt except the wire itself. Hook one of the wires on your bulb to one end of this wire,then hook the other wire on your bulb to power. If the light lights you have a short to ground.Now you can take the wire from power and hook it to ground and if the light lights you have a short to power.

    Now if this checks ok hook your light back up to power then go to the other end of the ckt,like right at the climate control itself and hook that to ground. Now your light should light up and this tells you that wire is good and that it can also carry a load.

    No thats the only things on this ckt. If u disconnected both and fuse still blows then u have one of these wires shorted.You will have to trace it like I described with a bulb.

I have a 2002 pontiac grand prix doesn't blow any


    • 1 Start the engine of the car and allow it to run for a few minutes. Adjust the climate controls. If they do not feel right, then the problem is probably in the control panel. If the controls feel fine, but have no effect on the air then it is probably a blown fuse. If you cannot hear the accompanying blowing sound when the air is turned from low to high, then the problem is in the blower motor.
    • 2 Disconnect the black negative battery cable first when looking for the blower motor. Remove the trim panel and unplug the electrical connectors from the blower motor. Unscrew the retaining screws and remove the blower motor and fan.
    • 3 Check the control panel next. Disconnect the negative battery cable first. Remove the screws securing the cluster trim plate to the instrument panel and tilt the top of the cluster trim plate downward releasing the clips that mount the bottom of the trim plate to the dash.
    • 4 Remove the trim plate. Remove the screws attaching the accessory trim center plate to the dash. Tilt the top of the accessory trim plate downward releasing the clips that mount the bottom of the plate to the instrument panel.
    • 5 Use a screwdriver to unscrew the screws attaching the control assembly to the dash. Remove the control assembly from the dash. Disconnect the electrical connectors and remove the control assembly.
    • 6 Replace a blown fuse in your Grand Am easily. There are two interior fuse boxes in Grand Am, but the right fuse will be found on the passenger side. Open the door and pry off the side panel to the right of the dashboard. Use the guide on the inside of the panel to find the right fuse.

My 2004 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab dual Climate control appears to be malfunctioning. The passenger side is blowing hot air with the controls set on AC mode ( 67 Deg ) and the Driver side working...


you may need to have the controller re-calibrated. There is a TSB at the GM dealerships on this. What is happening is the the blend door control for the pass side has OVER-travelled and is stuck in a default position. You can try to pull the Blue fuse under your hood for the HVAC, for about 5-10 minutes and put it back in. (with the engine off) Then restart the truck and turn the Climate control back on, and push and hold the Auto button for 4-5 seconds

Cold air blowing out of passenger side when heater is on


try this, disconnect the battery negative cable for 5 minutes and reconnect, this reset the climate control system in most cases, it is out of sync, this is a common problem on all late GM cars and trucks with dual climate control, if this doesn;t work u may need to replace the air temperature control blend door actuator for whoich ever side u can't control the temeperature on, if that is the case here.

How can I fix


This is either an out of phase issue or a temperature control blend door or blend door motor actuator problem, it can also be the climate control module in the dash, 1st try disconnecting the battery for 5 min's to re-sync the climate control module, if this fails u will need to find out what blend door is the problem or if they are ok replace the automatic climate control module in the dash

Hello There

15 Amp sounds too small. It should be around 25 -30 Amp. You need to double check the size of fuse needed.
