Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you. Sorry to hear about your problem. The 10 amp A/C fuse is just the trigger circuit it will also have a high amp fuse or fuse able link as they used to call it, to handle the heavier draw from the A/C clutch. If you have the original owners manual it should show where that high amp fuse is. check that and if bad replace it and should solve your issue. Hope this helps you solve your problem and if you need further help I'll be happy to do so.I will include a couple pics to help out. In the one pic is the A/c circuit and the high amp fuse I entioned to check I believe it's a 120 amp
