This just started today. Its a 98 S70 GLT. Compressor was changed 4 years ago. AC has always worked great but today for no reason what so ever the AC just stopped.

I opened the hood to see that the compressor wasnt engaged. I checked the main fuses and number 5 10A on the blade type fuses was blown. I replaced it, compressor came on fora couple seconds and blew again. Subsequently I changed the clutch relay, the high and low pressure switches, the ECC and have bypassed the thermal cutout switch as well....Now the ac will run for a solid 3-5 mins but still pops that fuse and quits each time.

I have read the clutch coil might be pulling too much current for some reason. I dont think its clutch gap out of spec as it never had any symptoms related to that. Im at a loss on this, let me know what you think. Thanks.

You troubleshot your own issue. Replace the AC compressor since minimally it’s clutch is shot.
