A/c compressor keeps blowing fuse
\015 I have a 2006 lincoln zephyr that needed a new alternator....working underneth the car I had to take the a/c compressor off the get to the alternator...when i did this, the connector from the clutch broke a little. after putting everything back together and trying to refill/recharge the compressor, my 10AMP fuse keeps blowing under the hoodin the fuse box on the battery side. as far as i can tell, thats the only fuse that i can see that is related to the ac and compressor.... (ARE THERE ANY MORE? Relay maybe?)\012 \012after going thru 3 fused, i decided to cut out the factory harness connection housing.\012 \0121. there are two wires on the a/c compressor clutch...(one red, the other red with a white dot above it close to the compressor) im thinking the one with the white dot above it is the positive wire.\012 \0122. the wires coming from the car are two as well...one is purple with a yellow stripe and the other is black with a yellow stripe. i dont know which is positive.\012 \0123. i took black 14 GA wire and red 14 GA wire and spliced the black with the solid red on the compressor. then i took the red 14 GA and spliced it with the red wire with the white dot above it on the compressor. hooked everything back up underneth.\012 \0124. i then connected the new solid black from the compressor and connected it to the black with yellow stripe\012 \0125. i then connected the new solid red from the compressor and connected it to the purple with a yellow stripe\012 \012 \012turned on a/c, fuse blew...so then i swapped the connections (red with black with yellow stripe and black with purple with a yellow stripe)\012 \012put in new fuse...turned on a/c...fuse blew....\012 \012am I missing something here? It was working before i started this whole thing...someone told me that the fuse keeps blowing cuz there isnt enuff freon in the compressor but how can i recharge system if compressor cluch isnt spinning? PLEASE HELP ME FIGURE THIS THING OUT? I AM AT A LOSS.\012 \012what wire shold be connected to what, how can i tell if the clutch is bad or not?\012 \012Thank You so much for your time\015
Disconnect The AC compressor clutch, does the fuse still blow.
