Built in system to protect burning out the compressor. you need to get your system checked out because you are probably low on freon. which means you may have a leak.. so even if you take it to pep boys or similar place to have a service and test done you will know if your system is holdin freon. more than likely it is not.

I have a 2002 pt cruiser that is blowing the ac 10amp fuse repeatedly. I mean within minutes of changing it. Also the ac is only blowing hot air. Can someone please help.

An AC system blowing hot air is usually due to a low freon charge or a non operational AC compressor. If the fuse blows, disconnect the compressor electrical plug and turn on the AC. If the fuse doesn't blow, suspect a compressor problem. If the fuse continues to blow with the compressor disconnected, there is a direct short between the ON/OFF switch and the compressor which can take hours to diagnose

Sounds like you have a dead short in your system. Best to take it to the dealer and let them throw a breakout box on it. Problem being is that when it's working fine they won't be able to find the problem. It could get to be very costly for you if they can't find it right away.

Disconnect the electrical connector to the AC compressor clutch and try again. If the fuse doesn't blow, then you've got a shorted AC clutch coil.

The 120 amp main fuse keeps blowing in my 2001 mazda tribute

Blowing this fuse is usually a sign of a shorted out starter or the positive battery cable. Make sure the cable has no holes in the coating where it could be shorting to ground. Next would be to replace the starter with a known good one.

A/C blowing hot air on 2002 Ford ZX2

first id check see if hoses where it connects have oily residue on them , if yes then o-rings/hoses are leaking and need replaced, usually compressor wont kick on if low refrigerant.
also check fuse box, sometimes a fuse will blow, need replaced , kind of rare but happens. might also look aaat where there are high/low pressure sensors screwed into condensor by firewall , passenger side usually. use a small wrench and tap very lightly and them sometimes very rarely they stick. if so id replace.
