Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ac compressor seized up and I have bypassed it with a shorter belt, which is working, but now it is blowing the number 18 fuse.  If I unplug the compressor will it help this and which plug am I unplugging?  There are 2, one on the top back and one in the front that is super hard to get my hands on.

Unplug both

Thanks for the answer, I will Try and get to that one that's a pain. Also, does unplugging the relay, number 33 i think it is, work just as well? I don't think it controls anything else.
