Sounds like the AC compress is seized. or there's a short in the Ac clutch circuit. You can visually inspect the compressor and determine if it is seized or not. look at the electrical connection and see if it is shorted to ground or not. If you are unable to determine the cause then the best advice I can give you is to take it to a reputable repair shop. AC repair can get very expensive. So beware.

1995 Toyota Camry AC blew 10 amp fuse causing it, fan, electric windows, door locks to quit working. I replaced 10 amp fuse. Now AC light is steady for a few seconds, then blinks and soon blows fuse.


This fuse powers the control system and compressor clutch. Odds are you need a new compressor clutch, but you can try a slightly larger fuse--no more tham 15 amps. If the light still blinks, have someone check the amperage at the clutch. Clearly, the clutch should not be consuming more than 10 amps. The diagram is at the link below.

Eng. controller Fuse keeps blowing when I turn the ignition on to start my car


Have you checked your wiring to starter? It sounds like the power wire going to starter has loosened up.That would cause fuse to blow and also the way you described that the car died. Or even check to see that the red wire going to starter hasn't gotten dinged or melted by the exhaust. Anything that would cause it to short out.

Why do the fuses on my scion xb keep blowing?


Did you check to make sure the fuses are the right rating to begin with. Fuses are rated by amperage and disconnect the circuit or "blow" if there if the circuit is shorted out (+ touches - or vice versa) or a device or circuit draws more amperage than the fuse is rated. Did you buy the vehicle new? If not then there may have been modifications. Does is have the stock radio? Does it have an amp or subwoofer? Driving lights? There is also a fuse block with relays and fusable links under the hood. Refer to the owners manual and verifiy all the components in both fuse blocks are of the correct type and rating. Physically remove and inspect every related fuse and make sure no one has "jumped" a fuse by wrapping it in foil or ataching a solid wire across the connection. If all that works out ok, have the voltage reguator checked as it is regulates a constact rate of power to the car. If is is allowing momentary surges, it is possible that it could exceed the cirucit ratings especiallly on the 10 and 15 amp circuits that most of your accessorys and lighting use; Good Luck.

Unplug the a/c compressor, there will be a plug near the pulley. Install a new fuse. Start the vehicle and turn the a/c on. Wait about the same amount of time it took for the fuse to blow in the past. Did the cues blow? If no replace the a/c compressor, the clutch has gone bad. If yes, than the wiring between the fuse and the relay or the relay to the comps sore is grounded. A careful inspection of the wiring should reveal the problem.

check transfer case electrical switch, sometime if it bad it will also blow the fuse. don't recommend you put any higher fuse than recommend, If the fuse blow there is a short some where and by putting higher amp fuse you might short or burn something else beside the fuse. if that check out than check your transfer case motor, might lock up and not allowing the motor to turn instead it short the fuse. don't drive the car, just leave it in park, put correct fuse amp back in and unplug transfer case electric switch and turn the key on (dont start the car) and see if the fuse blow; if not plug it back in and see if it blow the fuse. if that is not the case, unplug transfer case wire, and do the same and see if it blow the fuse.
