Pontiac Repair/A/c fuse keeps blow.


On my 2004 Pontiac my a/c fuse keeps blowing and then my car want start?

Hi there.
you didn't say what type of car this is but I'll assume it is a Grand am? more then likely the clutch on the a/c compressor is shorted out or the wiring going to it is shorted most likely it's the clutch! either don't turn on the a/c or defroster or pull out the relay in the underhood fuse box. that relay is right near the fuse in that same box. flip over the cover on the box and look at the road map printed on the cover to see which relay to remove. that will stop the fuse from blowing till you can get the compressor fixed.
Good luck :-)
