Question about Chevrolet Uplander
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.

you have a short somewhere problably bad ground , or interferrance from alternaot overloading the circuit... check all ground securlely...if you cant locate it its not going to be cheap for a mech to locate the issue.. good luc kthough ( also check for loose wire behind the fuse box in car.

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.

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.
