Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
40 amp fuse under the hood. Replaced it last week blown out again and no A/C again this week. Any ideas what is blowing the fuse?
Look at the wires connected to the a/c compressor on your motor. You might have a wire that's shorting out, or rubbing against something.

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.

Check the fuel shutoff valve. to see if it is on. press the reset button to do this. if it stays on. The answer could be pinched wires (a short) from the fuse wiring back towards the shutoff valve. if the valve shuts off try checking for current with a test light. if no current . The valve is bad. it seems like a short or open circuit on the fuel system wiring.

Does it only do this when the heat or A/c is on full blast.. ( I had a few of my customers with this problem and they needed a new blower motor..)

SOURCE: 50 amp fuse keeps blowing
There are several ways to solve this problem. You need a schematic of vehicle from Haynes or whoever, such high amperage I would place in line fuses to each item, that way it will isolate problem then look for bare or rubbing wire under seat or in doors ( too much junk jammed under seats) ? Anyway with a little time and some disassembly should be a simple fix.
