Also powers ,digital transmission range sensor . Your digital range sensor is probably shorted inside . This could cause the problem your having .

I have a 2002 pt cruiser that is blowing the ac 10amp fuse repeatedly. I mean within minutes of changing it. Also the ac is only blowing hot air. Can someone please help.


An AC system blowing hot air is usually due to a low freon charge or a non operational AC compressor. If the fuse blows, disconnect the compressor electrical plug and turn on the AC. If the fuse doesn't blow, suspect a compressor problem. If the fuse continues to blow with the compressor disconnected, there is a direct short between the ON/OFF switch and the compressor which can take hours to diagnose

Why does the ac comp fuse onder hood keep blowing


Possible direct short in compressor clutch. Disconnect wiring harness from compressor and then turn AC on> If fuse doesn't blow, then problem is in compressor/clutch. Suspect it to be seized. If fuse blows while compressor disconnected then problem in wiring.

2004 kia rio high and low beams not working. Fuse keeps blowing. Can't isolate a problem.


have you examined all of your headlight bulb sockets for any heat/fire damage? even if not, pull the bulbs, and use an appropriate headlight socket insulating grease to reduce temps and avoid corrosion.

when headlight bulbs are changed, it is suggested to use a socket grease insulator to seal them from humidity/corrosion AND to lower socket temps. without this grease, the headlight sockets could possibly catch fire and/or melt, and, if the exposed wiring then shorts, it would blow a fuse.

On 2005 mustang keeps blowing fuse 47 in fuse box under hood I have checked every thing it can find


that fuse could be burning out because of the oxygen sensors. Change them out. See if that takes care of the issue. If not then on the under hood fuse block unhook the black and white connections. Try the a/c again. If it does not blow the fuse, hook one of those back up and see, If they both blow the fuse. trace the red and yellow wire to check for shorts.

I have a 2003 GMC Sierra, the compressor fuse under the hood keeps blowing. I had the compressor replaced and the clutch turns easily. It will blow the fuse randomly. Any suggestions of where to start?...


fuses blow because of excess current. The clutch coil requires considerable current so I would be checking the amperage required and seeing if I had the correct fuse for the job

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.

Air conditioner, fuel gauge, and temp gauge all stopped working at the same time


Three possibilities;
All related to blown fuses,

1- Fuse blown in the engine compartment LH.
2- Fuse blown in the cabin forward LH below the dashboard (below your legs left hand).
3- Fuse blown in the harness (wire bundles) below the dashboard very easy to reach with your hands “just look underneath steering wheel ".

U said " The air conditioner blows, but the air is not cold.
" Yes only the fan working which might receiving power independent all from those other mentioned things.
If all fuses OK. Then look for broken wires.
