Customer reply replied 2 years ago
3.9 liter and it's the number one fuse. The fuse that runs the compressor.
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

Thanks, ***** ***** remove the AC clutch relay, auxiliary coolant pump relay, and unplug the DCCV and try another fuse commanding the AC on to see if the fuse blows. If it does not blow then plug in the DCCV and retest. Do the same for the relays. This will help us find out if its a short or one of the things on this circuit overloading it. Report back on those results.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.

I'm only paid from the deposit you've made when you rate 3,4, or 5 stars.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
