Fuse keeps blowing out. Odometer and speedometer don't work and cold ac quits. I've replaced the fuse many times and it keeps blowing out. Unhooked the ac compressor wiring and tried again, blown again. Any suggestions?

    MY 08 CHEVY UPLANDER HAS AN ISSUE WITH BLOWING THE AC FUSE EVERYTIME I TRY TO REPLACE IT. I HAVE UNPLUGGED THE AIR COMPRESSOR AND PUT THE NEW FUSE IN ONLY TO HAVE IT BLOW AGAIN WHEN I HOOK IT BACK UP. I HAVE CHECKED TO SEE IF ANY WIRES ARE BAD AND THEY ARE NOT. I HAVE CHECKED TO SEE IF ANY ARE KINKED UP AND THEY ARENT. I HAVE CHECKED THE CLUTCH IN THE AC COMPRESSOR AND IT IS SMOOTH SAILING. SO WHAT NOW. SO I JUST GET A NEW AC COMPRESSOR AND GO FROM THAT?

I had the same problem with my 2000 Windstar. It ended up being a brake fluid leak around a sensor on the master cylinder. The sensor is a known issue and has been redesigned. The brake fluid dripped onto some elctrical connections causing fuses to blow. The sensor turns off the cruise control when the brakes are pressed. On some vehicles it was known to cause fires and Ford had to provide a recall. At the time my Windstar was not covered in the recall but it may be now.

Lights or fuse for my speed odemeter guage and heater/air conditioning system


These lights for the dash are controlled by a rheostat instrument control dimmer switch next to the main light switch for the headlights, it is either turned off (have seen this dozens of times) or it is defective. Below is a picture of the switch assembly I speak of. The thumb wheel next to the knob is the dimmer control.

2003 chevy s10 - keeps blowing out AC fuse. Will work for a couple minutes then compressor quits working. Check the fuse, it is blown out. Put in a new fuse, works a couple minutes, then quits, fuse blown...


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.

Everthing on my dash (speedometer,odometer,fuel


Blown Fuse or fried Circuit board. Take to a local AutoZone, Advance, Murray's, O'reillys or a similar part house for them to check the wiring. I'm assuming the van does not use a mechanical Speedometer or Fuel Gauge.

On the plus side, with no speedometer, your indicated odometer mileage does not increase. Just keep your speed down and your tank full. Kidding, just kidding.

Speedometer, odometer, and radio quit working all of a sudden. All other guages work. I have all other lights.


First thing I would look at would be the fuses under the dash on the driverside. there should be a panel with the diagram for the under dash fuses on it. check the fuses for the radio and speedometer. if the fuse it blown replace it. if it keeps blowing then you have a short somewhere between the fuse box and the corresponding equipment.

Speedometer,odometer, a/c clutch and ABS light on


Its a faulty switch/sensor on your brakes master cylinder. The switch leaks brake fluid into the wires connected to it causing a short in the circuit and blowing the fuse that controls the ABS, odometer, speedometer and cruise control. This problem can also cause a fire. A fire can occur even when the car is off. Go to this link to find out how to fix the problem. - http://www.fordwindstarrecall.info/

Fuse keeps blowing


Greetings..hopefully we can help or at least isolate the issue. You need to know that there was a few recalls with the cruise control system which is involved.. speedo and odometer is possibly in that circuit..but I am sure the ac had a separate fuse and relay...I do not have a book or schematics here. ,,I would disconect the wires to the ac compressor taking that out of the cause... I would also disconnect the cruise control wire to the unit and drive aroud for a day or so to see what happens. This is whats known as isolate and test . It may take some time but it will give you answers to what is the cause and then check that system out with us. At least you will have it narrowed down...ps ..do not forget at when it happens and what type of roadway ( bumpy, soft, wet, snow) as it all plays a part in diagnostics. I hope this helped.

The speedometer quit working on a 2001 town and country. I replaced the output sensor, but it still doesn't work. The check engine light is not on.... Any suggestions???


Try pressing the trip odometer reset button for 5 seconds. It will flash2.gif an error code. Then the odometer lights will flash, a bunch of error codes2.gif flash. Let it finish.

I found this on fixya before, and it worked for my van. I didn't replace anything.
