I had a similar problem with the dash light fuse blowing on my 93 Lumina APV. Had it back to the Chevy dealer several times but they were not able to, or didn't want to take the time to look for the problem. I finally took maters into my own hands and took out the cowling around the instrument display.I found the problem was in the wiring bundle that was against the steering column. The insulation was worn where the wires made contact with the steering column. A little electricians tape and a piece of cardboard fixed the problem. No trouble now for 5 years.

If the air conditioning pump in the 1993 Chevy Z24 blows perfectly, but won't get cold, it is possible that the Freon needs to be recharged in the air conditioning unit. This can usually be done for about $40 by the consumer.

When fuse blows?

When a fuse blows, you should replace the fuse and check to see what might have caused it to blow. It's a sign that there might be something causing too much current to flow in the circuit.
