Replace fuse, then before power-up disconncet wire to compressor clutch coil then turn on A/C its usually a 2 wire connector or can be just one wire, if fuse holds the coil is internally breaking down and shorting to ground resulting in too much current draw and the fuse blowing problem,if it blows again check for a bare wire from control to compressor

99 chrysler lhs air compressor won't work

unplug the low pressure switch in the air conditioner line near the dryer with air switched on , jump the connector with a short piece of wire to see if the compressor clutch engages. If it does your pressure switch is bad. If the pressure switch is good then there is a fuse near the compressor somewhere that may be blown. If it blows new fuse your clutch is bad.

I have a 1998 chrysler concorde. The airbag light on the dash stays on and my horn doesnt work. How do i fix this without costing me tons of money?

Could be a wiring problem or the clockspring in the steering column.
You would need to pull the steering wheel and test the circuits.

I have a 2006 Impala the 10 amp a/c fuse blows. I was told by i needed a new compressor. So i put one in and still have the same problem.

I would start by checking the wiring from the a/c control head all the way to the compressor as it is most likely a short causing the fuse to blow. You will most likely need a wiring schematic of the air conditioning system and a dvom/volt meter.

Ac fuse blowing, in 1996 isuzu rodeo

Disconnect wire to Air Conditioning Compressor and connect normal test light to wire, from engine harness(body)side. Fit new fuse and try air cond controls and switch, test light should light up and hopefully fuse wont blow indicating short in compressor clutch windings(replace compressor). If fuse blows while doing this test compressor might be ok and fault short some where else, fan speed resistor block, fan or control/switches, wiring.

The fuse for the gauges keep blowing and also when heat is turned on cold air comes out the bottom but when it is in defrost mode its hot

disconnect the main plug from your instrument panel...does the fuse blow...if it doesnt, check wiring on the cluster panel, a wire could be rubbing causing a short.
you could have a line that feel off on the heater core or somewhere else ..sorry i cant help more. tell me does your air conditioning work when you turn it to full hot?
