Without any other information I'd suggest you test the wiring for a short to ground.

Can you hear the compressor functioning at all before the fuse blows? It is possible the compressor located next to the wiper fluid resivour is bad.

Sounds like you have more electrical problems than just the leveling control/compressor.

Please list out all the symptoms and that will help us better help you.

Sounds like when you hit the pothole, you might have loosened a wire and cause it to start shorting. Where that is, I can't begin to guess. Which fuse number is it that blows and I'll look in my 93 Manuals to see if I could locate the possible cause. Did this happen at the same time as the ELC did?

That'* what I'd like to know too. Or check the ELC sensor for damage since you told us you hit a pothole.

Cookseytonyc, we've told you countless times to put your Year and Trim level in your signature. Please do so now. In addition, you've been asked several times to actually put some descriptive content in your topic titles. In addition, this topic is an ELECTRICAL problem and doesn't belong in the Mechanical section. In addition, you already HAVE a topic running in the electrical section that covers most of this.

So I'm going to lock this as a double post and move it to the Electrical section. Please use the topic you already have running.

If you want our help, you HAVE to give the information we need, and you have to troubleshoot the way we ask you to. If you don't give us the additional info we ask for, there'* nothing we can do for you.
