Hi there!

Yup - you're probably right regarding a dead short.

If you can remove the fuse, turn unit to on position, then use a meter set to ohms between the output side and ground, Then you can see what resistance there is. A dead short will be a very low value. A higher value will indicate a stuck or siezed motor somewhere. - Then to track down which one it is!

Hope this solves your problem. If it does - please take a moment to rate - Fixya if it solves it, Helpful if it wasn't anything mentioned above, but still useful info.

Thanks.

1993 Cadillac deville elrs fuse blowing intermittently need Mitchell electrical wiring schematic / harness locations


fuses blow because the current flow is in excess of the fuse rating and that is normally from a dead short in the circuit after the fuse
I suspect that the ac compressor rely is faulty and I would start looking in that area

Fuse keeps blowing on a/c on 2001 dodge truck


Let's break this down.
1 Does the fuse blow when the heater is on, or just the AC?
Yes- Fan motor problem likely need new blower motor.
No- 2
2 Disconnect the AC compressor clutch wire. Remove the blown AC fuse, connect a multimeter across the sockets for the fuse, measure DC voltage across the two sockets with the AC switch, and Ignition switch ON. Is Battery voltage present?
Yes- The wiring harness has a short between the output of the AC switch and ground, likely a pinched harness.
No- The AC compressor clutch is shorted. Replace either the whole compressor or the clutch.

Keep blowing a/c fuses


IT may be a faulty ac clutch coil (shorted out or wire touching the earth ). Have it tested and if that is the case then clutch pack coils can be bought and fitted without removing the compressor or opening the gas side .

1999 oldsmobile alero will blow the fuses wen turning on the air conditioner and I have tried to replace everyfuse but it still blows


Check for an earth point in the power wire to the ac compressor. N do the wire at the compressor clutch and test as the clutch coil may be dead shorting and blowing fuses.

Mazda 626 ac fuse keeps blowing


Try unplugging the compressor then put in a new fuse. If the fuse does not blow, the problem may be the clutch on the compressor.

Ac fuse keeps blowing on my 2006 kia optima 6cyl


You'll need to have someone check the circuit - could be a bad a/c clutch, relay, or short in the wiring.

2001 Ford taurus #22 fuse (A/C clutch relay PCM keep alive power fuse) blows. Replaced A/C clutch relay....still blows even with A/C off


Remember that when you THINK the AC's off,it's really not.Almost all cars have the AC compressor actuate every time you set the dial to `defrost' or `mix' positions.
On a TAURUS there are only two positions(maybe three)which DON'T kick the AC on.On some cars,that's the 11 o'clock and 2 o'clock positions on the selector.

SO...........the odds are that the compressor magnetic clutch or wiring to it has shorted.Because you really have power going there even when you think you don't. (:^) don-ohio

Ac not blowing cold, check main relays, has r12, jumpered and clutch kicks in. checked all fuses and relays swapped horn and ac OK... she has the push button ac controls.... thinking its something with...


there is a pressure switch on the ac drier that is the big silver can looking thing by the dash under the hood... if this goes bad the ac compressor will not kick on and the fans will not run when the ac is turned on... if the fans are not running at the same time of the ac compressor it will not blow cool..

When i turn the a/c on it blows the a/c clutch fuse


The ac compressor is probably siezed. When you're turning on the ac it cant turn the compressor so its blowing the fuse. It could also be that the clutch windings are shorted.

That would be my first guess.

You can locate the wires on the compressor clutch that engage the clutch, remove the belt, and leave the engine turned off. Apply power from the battery to the clutch wires and see if you can move it at all with your hands. Use small gauge wire and maybe put in a inline fuse. If the clutch is burned up it will blow the fuse. I think the inline fuses are pretty cheap at a auto parts store. If its not burned up, and you cant move the pulley at all by hand, more likely than not you need to replace the compressor.
