Thank you for your answer. When I went to my mechanic the second time the fuse blew he just said "it could be a lot of things" and rattled on about things I know nothing about. At least now I have a place to start!

jump the low or high pressure switchs this switchs are located on the a/c lines of tje compresor not run check power to the compresor if you have power maybe the compressor is gone
check the a/c control pannel to and take a second opinion before expend money
My car stopped running without any warning, its a 2005ford focus, 2.0 and the 20 amp fuse for the engine management keeps blowing, it's number 9 in the panel and I have replaced it twice, both times it blew again, any tips? Also the odometer reads ------ and that's it.
go to a salvage yard and tell them the size of your engine and you need a coolant fan because the relay is inside the fan but if you are tight for money and someone knows how to do it you can run a wire to the fan and to the ingition switch but the fan will run all the time while the car is running
Next time you change the fuse,open the hood,make sure vehicle is in PARK if an automatic or in Neutral with the parking brake on,also keep your hands away from the moving belts & radiator as it's hot. Look for a large aluminum A/C compressor,have an assistant turn on & off the A/C and look & listen at the front of the compressor to see if the electric clutch is engaging & dis-engaging. If not, turn off engine and see if electrical lead to it is connected/intact, if it is the clutch could be bad or the compressor locked up. You can check to see if it's working by touching the bare aluminum pipes or lines,if they're cold the unit is working. Check for a little glass window in the black hoses if you see a lot of tiny bubbles or oil streaks there are mechanical issues.
it sounds like something is shorting out for the fan switch. I would take the dash apart and take a look to see if one of the wires is burnt and shorting out the fan switch. This is most likely the case.
I had the same problem today with my sunfire 96 2.2L and it was the radiator fan that was draining too much amperes and the fuse blew up 3 seconds or less after the fan was turning.... i just change the radiator fan motor and the fan and the fuse are ok!!!!
It's possible that the fan control relay is intermittently sticking causing the fans to run continuously. This can overheat and subsequently blow the fuse. Try replacing the relay and see if anything changes.
well The same thing happened to me and I have a Answer! It was was just getting to hot and the thermostat housing is Crappy mine blew as well.. so I went to a Toyota dealer and bought the part and put it in my self.... EASY Stuff
