2000 Chevy Truck V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

If I put a plain wire into the spot where the relay fuse fits that turns the air compressor it works just fine but if I put a brand new fuse in it then it does nothing. Why

Hello, I wouldn't wire it like that, if the amps are too high it might cause a fire. I'm not sure about the model of your vehicle? Which fuse is it? I looked at info on a silverado, it showed two fuses carrying voltage to the clutch relay. One for the coil side of relay, goes hot when you turn on the key. The other for the switch side of relay and is hot all the time. Usually the fuses have a bare spot over each leg, you can use a testlite on each spot, to see if there is voltage. Does it keep blowing the fuse?

No it doesn't blow the fuse. I just thought it had gone bad but it's not the fuse. For some reason my compressor doesn't turn when I have just a fuse in the socket for the air conditioning
