Blower Motor Fuse keeps blowing only when A/C is on?

Asked by Aug 21, 2014 at 09:42 AM about the 1998 Toyota Camry CE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1998 Toyota Camry 4 Cyl.

So blower motor went out and I checked the fuse which was blown. I replaced the
fuse, turned the car on (not started, just in accessory position) and the blower motor
worked good in all speeds.

As soon as I started the car, the fuse blew. I tried this again and made sure the AC
was off before starting it and the blower motor stayed on for all speeds. As soon as I
turned the A/C on, the fuse blew again.

Before this, the AC was working nice and cold.

I replaced the blower motor and the resistor but the same thing happened.

How about the switch it's self?

You mean the AC/Heater Control, right? That works if I put in the fuse and leave the A/C off. As soon as I turn on the AC, the fuse blows and the control stops working with the light turning off as well.

Sounds like something has seized up, or a wire has melted and grounded out. If possible, put in a new fuse and have someone turn on the A/C and watch under the hood to make sure all the pulleys are turning. If fuse instantly blows before anything turns, I would start tracing the wires back until I found the bad one.

if you can disconnect the a/c coil and try again. If the fuse does not blow when a/c button turned on and the fan continues to blow it may be a shorted coil. May need to replace clutch assembly.

    I can turn it on while driving warm air comes out of the vents (the outside air will flow through as warm air when its on heat) but the blower itself will not work.
