FUSE KEEPS BLOWING

ON MY 08 CHEVY UPLANDER THE FUSE KEEPS BLOWING EVERYTIME I REPLACE IT.I HAVE CHECKED THE WIRING TO SEE IF THEY ARE IN NEED OF REPLACING AND THEY ARE LOOKING GOOD. I ALSO CHECKED THE CLUTCH IN THE COMPRESSOR AND ITS GOOD. I HAVE UNPLUGGED THE COMPRESSOR AND PUT A NEW FUSE IN AND AS SOON AS I PLUG IT BACK UP IT BLOWS AGAIN. IF YOU TRY TO PUT A FUSE IN WHILE ITS STILL PLUGGED UP IT BLOWS THE FUSE BEFORE YOU CAN EVEN PUT IN IN. SO DO I NEED TO JUST BUY A NEW AC COMPRESSOR AND SEE HOW IT GOES

It sounds like the A/C compressor clutch is shorted. You will need to have the clutch and / or the complete compressor replaced.

SOURCE: fuse keeps blowing out.

I had the same problem with my 2000 Windstar. It ended up being a brake fluid leak around a sensor on the master cylinder. The sensor is a known issue and has been redesigned. The brake fluid dripped onto some elctrical connections causing fuses to blow. The sensor turns off the cruise control when the brakes are pressed. On some vehicles it was known to cause fires and Ford had to provide a recall. At the time my Windstar was not covered in the recall but it may be now.

SOURCE: Fuse Keeps Blowing

First off the reason for instant fuse blow is because this is a positive wire grounding out or touching/crossing a grounded surface. I would first target the Cig lighter outlet connections also if the outlet is rusty inside looking, replace it.

SOURCE: blows hot air clutch does not engage

you either have a power loss problem but more likley your low on refrigerant. if its low, there is numerous pressure sensors that will not allow it to engauge to protect the compressor. you got to put a gauge on it. standing system at 80"F should have about 80-90 lbs. standing pressure.

My 08 Chevy Uplander is running cold. What could be causing this? We have replaced the thermostat twice in the past couple months.


First pull the plug for the coolant sensor and check for broken wires. Pull on the wires because they break at the plug and inside the rubber coating. Then replace the coolant sensor.

Fuses only blow if-Old,Overheated or you have a Short circuit.
That should be any easy fix,to the extent that there aren't many 40 Amp Fuses and you will need a wiring diagram to follow the problem from the fuse to the cause. If you know what fuse it is, you can guess,but I wouldn't recommend that,it will be time consuming and maybe costly ,if you don't have a test procedure to follow and throw parts at it.
Don't replace the fuse.Their expensive and will keep blowing.

Reverse lights fuse blew


hi
check the wire because if the fuse keep blowing there's a wire somewhere on the car that has contact with the frame so everytime you put your car on reverse the 12V wire shortcut on the frame so the fuse blow check all your positive wire and your bulb as well
Good luck
