[DML] Re: Fanzilla Failure??? UPDATE



After alot of troubleshooting (Thanks Rob) I found that the problem 
was not the fanzilla but the connection in the washer compartment 
where the main harness meets the front harness. The connection 
looked like the terminals on a battery with corrosion. I cleaned 
them and everything started working..

NEW PROBLEM::

After getting the fans back on I discovered the compressor clutch 
was not always engaging. After metering it I found it was getting 
power but because of the gap it wasn't pulling in. I had a local AC 
shop remove a shim and it started working fine.. AND NOW THE 
PROBLEM:: After a few days of working fine the AC would no longer 
come on at any fan speed or mode setting. The door unlocked light 
also went out so I knew it was the fuse. I discovered the #10 20amp 
fuse was blown and replaced it. After another day it blew again. Now 
it blows after only about 15 minutes. I don't want to put a larger 
fuse in if there is another problem. Any thoughts on what would 
cause the #10 fuse to blow? Is it a clutch issue?? Should there be a 
25amp fuse there?? I am in South Florida and it has been a sauna 
here and I am driving to work every day in a shirt and tie.. HELP

prefer not to have the light on unless it is a failure. I look at 
the lights as "idiot lights" and feel I should not see them unless 
something is wrong.
