Re: [DML] What would cause my blower fan (A/C) to quit after 1 minute?

I would not bother changing the lock module circuit breaker. Just stick an in-line fuse for the lock module in the big red wire. that way it can't keep resetting and burning up your solenoids.

But even at this they would only trip the breaker on speed 4 as speed 3 has a resistor in the path that reduces the current.
