93 325i - Compressor / Condensor / receiver - dryer have been replaced in the 2 years. On last trip A/C seemed to have troubles working. Was hot then cold then hot. Now the A/C fuse that feeds the voltage to the clutch has blown. Replaced fuse with clutch connector removed and turned on ac switch. Have good 12V at clutch connector. Put it all back together and fuse just pops. Fuse is a 7.5, tried a 10 and and same. I am not willing to go any higher. There is a module on the clutch, can this cause the fuse to blow? I just hope the compressor is not bad.
