Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a constant power leak on my 2000 Lincoln LS v8 39L I've light tested both fuse boxes and I've came up with two fuses the AC Clutch and the PJB what should I do to fix these problems
If by 'power leak' you mean 'system draw', swap out the a/c clutch relay with another relay in the box (lights, horn) and see if your draw goes away. Ford had a problem with their relays staying on. Don't forget, high end Ford/Lincoln cars take 15 - 20 minutes to power down their systems.

Fuses do not leak power . They just stop current when the set amperage is exceeded. The ac unit will not have power unless the switch is on. Remove the earth wire off the battery and place a multimeter in the circuit and set it to amps and read the current draw. That will indicate bulbs relays or what ever so you know where to start looking. I would check out the obvious things first like boot light still on. glove box light still on. interior light set to on all the time. headlights day light setting faulty.

On the passenger side, under the dash, on the right side if you are looking at the dash. There is another one in the trunk next to battery. There is a third one under the hood behind the right headlight.

SOURCE: On my 2007 Dodge 2500
there is no relay in that box that is called the tipm or totally integrated power module. that module is controlled by a computer and should be checked with a scanner to see if you have a code for the a/c. i m having the same problem i have been told it could be low freon but can not get the clutch to engage to check the high and low pressure. Also read where it may be the diode in the clutch on the ac compressor if you have a multimeter probe the compressor a good compressor will read somewhere between 3.5 and 4.0 anything else and clutch needs to be replaced. other possibilities may be the high or low pressure switch on the line. on myh 2006 2500 diesel it is located near the plug for the compressor on bottom side of motor. hope this helps.
