Why would the air conditioner on a 2000 Chevy Tracker keep blowing the 25 amp fuse?

I was told that my 2000 tracker kept blowing the a/c fuse because I had a bad ground somewhere. I just don't care for a/c so I never tracked down which green wire had a bad connection.

A/C 2000 Tracker adviceGo to--> a site called; It is well worth the trouble and you get a real timely reply- and save big $$$ instead taking it to a garage- if you can invest a little time troubleshooting. It's not so difficult, step by step. I have a '98 Tracker and rec'd EXCELLENT service from the Techs. This is the first(knock wood) problem I had with the A/C this year or anything else. This site is bookmarked on my computer. The Fuse blowing is doing it's job-->protecting vital sensors,relay,a/c amplifier. Go to this site. The Techs will walk you thru. Is it the 25 Amp in the engine compartment fuse box? Most books like Chilton won't have the A/C repair tips. You'll be glad you visited that site. Good Luck a fellow-Trackee!

I agree with the above. I've never been to the site, but I know that trackers are known for electrical gremlins that are costly to diagnose and repair, the most common being the faulty ground. Mine has this problem right now, and it kills my brand new battery after sitting for more than 24 hrs or so. I hope you find the info you'll need ... thanks to whomever listed the site, I'll be going there to diagnose my 2000 tracker's electrical problem. Good luck!

Before paying someone like at the site listed above, try and unplug the front Aux fan in front of the radiator. The fan is known for blowing fuses on XL-7's.

I had the same problem, somewhere in this forum I read that there are wires that come out of the fuse box under the hood. Those wires can rub against a metal part and wear away the coating on the wires. I looked under my hood and that's exactly what I found. I put some electrical tape on the damaged wire, replaced the fuse and today I have A/C.

Assuming the heater works fine, you have a short, probably in the AC compressor clutch.

I have a 1989 Chevy Cavalier, and I need to know how to put freon in to use the air conditioner in my Cavalier. Right now it is blowing hot air, would like cold air. Please help me.

Nope. Body style changed significantly in 1998 when Chevy replaced Geo on the Tracker nameplate. Sorry!

Is it blowing cold air only or not blowing any air at all.

It could need recharged or the damper might not be closed.

My 2003 Chevy Tracker would not restart when it was hot and finally would stall & not restart until it sat and cooled off for 10 minutes. It would crank but not start. We replaced the camshaft it solved the problem. It was located at the back of the engine, at the top and is held by just one screw.

a 1998 Tracker would be fuel injected and not have a carb.a 1998 Tracker would be fuel injected and not have a carb.

The engines in Chevy Trackers are Suzuki engines, I would recommend NGK plugs.

If the air conditioner is on but not cooling the house properly, you may have a leak in your duct work. A leak would allow all of the cold air to escape, blowing into the outdoors instead of cooling your house.

SAE 5W30 or 10W30 I would recommend the SAE 5w30 synthetic blend.

Chances are your air conditioner is low or out of coolant. You can go to AutoZone, Napa, Advance Auto, or numerous other do it yourself car repair stores and have it checked out.

First, I would check and change my filter. A clogged filter will block the air coniditioner from blowing cold air. If that does not work, I would call an air conditioning specialist.

Heater core is leaking. Air Conditioner drain hose is plugged.

The most common problem would be a lack of the coolant in the A/C unit. The other would be a broken condenser.

sounds like just a blown fuse. get you owners manaual out and find the listings for the fuses.

Try getting it re-gassed? This must be done by a qualified aircon person. If this isn't the problem, they will probably tell you what it is.

most likely the thermostat, but these vans also have a history of blowing head gaskets...... It would help if you described symptoms

i dont think a stalker tracker would work sorry

Are you blowing fuses or are the bulbs blowing? Blowing fuses would be a sign of any wires or metal contacts in your brake circuit grounding out or shorting on themselves. You'll have to check all of the wiring in your brake light/switch circuit to be sure.
