I have had this car for about a year. The A/C was working fine up until about two months ago. Just when it got hot here in Cleveland. At first the fuse popped after driving on the highway with the A/C on for a good twenty minutes or so. I replaced it and it worked for a couple of weeks. I replaced it again and then it started popping everytime I ran the A/C. I took it in to my local mechanic who I have been going to for over a decade and he checked the system with a VOM while the A/C was running and could not get the fuse to blow. I picked the car up and within a mile of leaving his shop it blew. If the car is parked, or just not moving, it will work but as soon as I begin to drive, even slowly and carefully through a parking lot. Pop, the fuse blows. He said that he can not figure it out unless it blows in his shop which we can't seem to get it to do. Have you ever heard such a thing and are you able to give me some advise as to what to check out. I am mechanically incined enough to do some real damage. Oil, brakes, tune-up & belts.
have the same problem?
