My 2006 Kia optima keeps blowing the AC fuse and the mechanic has checked all of the wiring and relays for a short and can't find anything. What can we do now?

Only thing you can do is find the short. Find out everything on the circuit and unplug componets one at a time until the fuse doesnt blow


I suspect the clutch coil on the compressor, sometimes they overheat and start a slow meltdowm process, everything will be fine until the load comes on then they short out and there goes you fuse, so check that first.
