Air Conditioning problem
1997 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles
The AC Condensor Fan Fuse continually blows. If I replace the fuse while the engine is cooled down the AC will run and cool the car for 5 minutes or so while at idle. Once the engine warms up the fuse blows causing the condensor fan to quit and compressor clutch to disengage. If I replace the fuse while the car is at running temp the fuse will blow immediately upon hitting the AC power button. It does not appear to be a wire shorting out to ground as the fuse only blows when the car is at running temp. The AC will run with a fresh fuse and cold engine. Is it possible for the compressor clutch or condensor fan to short across the coils at higher temperatures to create an increased current draw? Is there something that I'm over looking completely?
have the same problem?
