I have a 2002 PT. For about a year I had a problem blowing a fuse connected to the windshield wiper lever. It would only blow the fuse when I tried to squirt water from the resevoir on the windshield. After some painstaking investigation, I discovered the problem was a wire inside the steering column had slowly worn through and was grounding out on a steel bracket that had a sharp edge. Once I taped up the wire and filed round the sharp edge, I have had no problem since. Hope this helps.

When in my 2001 town and country my front Ac will blow but not strong. If i an sitting still theres nothing blowing.Any answers would be appreciated thanks


This is because your blower fans aren't operating. As you're moving forwards, you feel the air going through the vents from the outside, as you may have outside air turned on. Switch to recirculating mode and see if you get the same results. Check the fuse for your AC fan blowers.

2003 mercury sable, AC will blow ice cold until I spend too long sitting in traffic then it starts to blow warm, if I shut AC off and start moving after about 5 minutes I can turn it back on and it gets...


It's gathering frost inside. When you turn it off & drive around for a short while, it defrosts & starts working again.

I'll bet when you park it, you find a pretty large pool of water under it half an hour later, don't you?

Sorry, that's the nature of the beast - it's worse in humid weather, not so bad in dry weather. Pretty nearly all cars (with AC) do that unless the AC is designed oversized.

2002 pt cruiser fuse #11 blown


According to my diagram, number 11 is a 10amp fuse that powers the ac clutch relay. I don't see how it would keep the engine from starting.
Is the fuse you are talking about in the engine compartment box and is it a 10amp ?

No ac nd my fan stop working completely


Fuses blow because of higher than normal amperage in the circuit. Not sure what circuit the blown fuse is for but if it is for the fan the fan may be shorted therefore blowing the fuse. If you put fuse in while the ac was still on try shutting off the ac then putting the fuse in. See if it blows then if it doesn't then turn the ac on and if it blows you have at the very least isolated the system at fault.

01 kia rio keeps blowing the injector fuse every time i put it in first and take off how do i fix it


You may have a shortted injector. Pull all the injector connections off, put a new fuse in. If it still blows the fuse, you must have a short in the injector drive circuit from the ignition switch to the injectors. I don't know what all is in the circuit, but you may have a resistor pack before the current reaches the injectors
If the fuse did not blow, then one at a time, reconnect the injectors. You are looking for a shorted injector that blows the fuse. If the first connection blew the fuse, disconnect that one, put in a new fuse, and start with a different injector connector. You may find one that blows the fuse, meaning it is shorted, and needs replacing.
Good luck.

A/c blows hot air when the car is not moving but it will blow cold air when the car is moving.


Check to see if your electric cooling fan is working when the vehicle is in park with the engine and a/c running. If the fan isn't running then the a/c won't be able to blow cool air as it can't get rid of the heat through the condensor which is located ahead of the radiator. When you are driving over about 35 mph there is enough air being forced through the condensor and radiator to get rid of the heat and the a/c will start cooling properly again. If the fan isn't running and you sit with the car idling long enough [such as in heavy traffic] then the engine may overheat as it also has no way of cooling if the fan isn't working. Usually this fan is powerd by a 30 amp Maxi fuse but each model is a bit different. Your owners manual should have an illistration of the fuses and what they power. Good luck, hope this helps a bit!

1998 dodge neon ignition feed fuse in the car keeps blowing


Are you using the same power feed from the old radio? If so, your new radio may require a higher current fuse. Check the manufacturers information the came with the custom radio and make certain the current (amps) required is the same.
If the new radio has a higher power amplifier for increased audio, it will blow a low rated fuse.
On the other hand, it sounds as though you may have pinched the power feed wire in the radio bracket, trim cover or have it resting agaist a sharp bracket. So when you put the car in drive, the dash flexes enough to cause the short.
Does it blow the fuse when you shift to reverse?
let me know.
