Could there be a blown fuse causing the compressor not to work in a 2010 Ford Escape XLT?

Asked by Apr 14, 2014 at 02:04 PM about the 2010 Ford Escape XLT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2010 Ford Escape (that has had nothing but problems), but all of the sudden the compressor has stopped coming on.  it has been properly charged with coolant.  As I'm tight on money these days with a new baby, we have not taken it to a dealership yet.  Could this just be a blown fuse causing the compressor not to turn on?? Any ideas?

You don't have to take it to the dealer to have it checked out. Yes, there is a fuse but something would have to be fried or short-circuited to blow it. Low Freon level (not coolant), Low or high pressure switch failure, cooling fan failure, seized compressor, broken compressor shaft, torn out compressor clutch - there's a big list of things to check.

Thank you, Tracy!! That was a great starting point before wasting more money at Ford. I feel like I've given them twice what the car is worth since buying it brand new!
