Sorry, I don't quite understand what you may be asking. I can't think of any reason the radiator would have a fuse, and which compressor? Air conditioning, or air compressor?

yeah, I'm sorry, just getting feed-up with problem after problem...anyway, i meant my radiator fans and my AC compressor is not working...my belts are just spinning around my AC compressor and when i hit the AC in the car it still doesn't start turning. so my question is, is the AC compressor and my radiator fans on the same fuse or it this two different problems the reason why neither is working?

A feature of the climate control system in your car is to enable the radiator fans in the event the ac compressor is turned on.

Are you saying your AC compressor clutch is not engaging?

what I am saying is the pulley on the compressor is not turning at all.... my belts are just turning around it so yeah I guess the AC compressor clutch is not engaging and when I select AC on the temp control system the rad fans donít come on as well as when the car gets up to temp around 200 degrees or so they still donít. my rad fans donít come on at all .....

You'r compressor pully should spin whether you'r A/C is on or not, compressor is seized up from the sounds of it. I would check and make sure you'r belt isn't getting shreded from sliding on the pully.

An a/c compressor is a sealed unit as far as I know, and to the best of my knowledge it would be junk...
