I am sorry you are correct, I was checking the wiring diagram on your truck, the AC/Heater fuse is connected to the trans-case, it get its power Supply from the speedo fuse, my question now is, dose your speedometer work? If it does. Most likely it is this which in the transfer case, that is grounded in other words, it is no good. Because every time you put the transfer case in 4 Wheel Drive. The fuse blows.
