2004 Suburban blows 10a A/C fuse under hood


Question

If my 2004 suburban blows the 10amp A/C fuse, is there anything to check besides the clutch itself being shot? The 4 prong relay next to the fuse is good. The snowflake on the dash controller is on. I couldn't find any bad, shorted, or cracked wires leading to the compressor clutch. I heard some vehicles have a diode on the wire to the compressor clutch. Does a 2004 Suburban have a diode?

Yeah, that's what it sounds like. Common failure for a coil of wire. It can easily short to ground with age.

No it doesn't. You can unplug any one of: high side connector, low side connector, or compressor connector, and it wont blow fuse. I've kind of decided its the clutch magnet.

I doubt you'll see this...but just out of hope, did you ever figure out what it was? Same exact issue on my '04 Burb, replaced AC clutch and still has the same issue.
