    Have the magnetic clutch of the A/C compressor checked. Chances are it is already shorted and needed replacing or rewinding.

    unable to decipher vehicle make or country of origin. but, the most common magnetic clutch coils have about 1 ohm of resistance. hence, current=voltage divided by resistance (12 volts divided by 1 ohm gives you 12 amps, higher than 10 amps fuse you had. the fuse could be protecting the airconditioning amplifier. the condenser blower uses 15 amps fuse, the evaporator blower uses 15 amps

    it is an electronic module or microprocessor taking inputs as ambient temperature, engine speed, throttle position, coolant temperature, engine rpm, cabin temperature and high pressure switch/ low pressure switch and outputs as magnetic clutch relay, condenser fan relay, some inputs or outputs are not included. some are more complex. in some systems called climate control, the system is more complicated

    so jick you mean i should put there a fuse with a higher amp? a 15 or 20 amp? but why all of a sudden do it need a higher amp fuse if thats the case?
