Default 97 Honda Civic Ex blowing 20A a/c fuse

Hi,

My 97 Honda Civic EX just starting blowing the 20A condenser
a/c fuse today. I have put in two replacements which also blew
fairly quickly. Does anyone know what could cause this ?

Thanks,
Lynn McGuire

My first guesses would be an electrical short (which would blow any fuse of
any size) or a problem with the condenser drawing too much power. Have the
condenser checked.

I checked all of the wiring for worn areas this morning and
did not see anything. In fact, I am quite impressed with all
of the wiring and wiring shields.

Thanks,
Lynn

Took it to a local shop. The electric clutch on the compressor
is shorting out. So, they are putting in a new a/c compressor
(probably rebuilt) with clutch in for me. Lucky me !

you should verify that you're getting a new compressor if you are paying
for a new compressor.

If they're installing a rebuilt item,they should tell you that.
