Question about 2002 Mercury Sable
No, the compressor will NOT cause these fuses to blow. You have a SHORT in your electrical system. you have a HOT wire getting into the Ground for that system

It's even odd that you were getting a step-type voltage when you first checked.
Many speed regulators are simple tapped resistors with the switch selecting which tap is connected to the motor.
More elegant controls would use a semiconductor (transistor) and a few other components to supply step-variable voltage to the motor.
To determine which is used on your car, you will at least need the electrical diagram for it, preferably an aftermarket service manual - Haynes or Chilton should be available at least in the US and Canada.
Those will contain not only the electrical info you now lack but possibly instructions that will aid in locating the controlling circuit.
I suspect that circuit is faulty; if the resistor type, it will be a device with mulitple taps, if solid state, a few parts on a small board.

Sparking meaning your socket maybe not secure or lose connection. sometime the carbon brushes in blower worn out and need to change.

First look for a short or where a wire is exposed and fix that with electrical tape.
If you can not find it, then often I will put a Re-set fuse that does not blow but resets and costs about $5 at Autozone.
Good luck, J

SOURCE: No AC, heat, or vent
its sounds like the Blower speed controller, its located under the hood on the heater case. reach down a wiggle the connector, its under the heater hoses and attached to the case. If it starts the blower fan working get it replaced as it has a bad board.
