Having problems with your Ford Ranger ?

When i have my 2001 ford ranger in drive and turn the air conditioner on it blows a fuse. I think it has something to do with the airbag. Have you ever heard of this?

Answers :

The problem is most likely a faulty neutral safety switch located down on the side of the transmission, and that switch does a lot more in that Ford vehicle than just start the engine in neutral or park. If you do replace the switch be sure to align it while in neutral, and you should see the alignment marks on the neutral safety switch. Here is an image of the neutral safety switch.

\015\012There might also be an exposed wire that is getting grounded when you move the shifter into drive, and the wire could be under the dash or under the vehicle, and you should shift the gear shifter and look at the moving linkage parts to make sure that they are not moving or contacting any wires.
No would be totally different circuits for safety AC compressor clutch my be tight bearing or seized drawing big amps and blowing the fuse
