I had same problem with Nissan 4x4 took it done to auto elec he couldn,t find the short so he put in a resetting fuse so if it happened sometimes it would not blow fuse but reset, but that made no sense so after a month I worked out what was causing it.The alternator had a bear wire in side that touched other wires when driving over bumps so it was shorting out ignition and petrol pump fuse, so got another alternator from the wreakers and it never happened again apparently its common. seaya Neil
you need to inspect all AC WIRING, to find the SHORT, thats causing the fuse to blow ! donot put another fuse in until you locate the shorted condition, ( bad connection, frayed wire, bare wire touching metal along this circuit, you might have a bad switch, your ac has two switches under hood, one @ high pressure side and one @ low pressure side. and your main control switch, check all wires & connections
possibly a spike through the ciggarette lighter plug, try putting slightly larger fuse in ( 4 or 5 amp )
temporarily and see if it blows the slightlty larger fuse. if it does it's more likely to be something wrong with the ciggarette lighter socket if it doesn't blow the fuse it's more likely to be the power supply. Ebay for another one perhaps ??
I am assuming the fuse was not an issue before replacing the starter. You probably pinched a wire with the starter when you installed it. Take the starter back out and inspect the wiring harness, also see if the fuse blows when the starter is removed.
means you have a part that is dead shorted after the line fuse, usually a bridge diode, regulator IC or possibly the Horizontal output transistor. Not really something a non tech will be able to find, a volt Ohm meter is required as well as soldering equipment.
