Default Another Cruiser with A/C problems

I've read over 150 posts here on the forum reference a/c problems and ALL of the help steps have been taken. I've invested $1555 in a complete new factory a/c unit plus fan assembly but it still will run until the engine compartment gets hot (97 here in GA today) and then start blowing HOT air. If I'm on the Interstate I'll pull over and check and the fan is running but the a/c pipes are HOT. Yesterday I jumped the a/c fuse in the control box under the hood and the a/c came on. I replaced the fuse 3 times and no help.
Anyone have any idea what's happening? Thanks,
Bob

Did the new fuses blow?

Could be over charged hi pressure switch shutting it off
make sure nothing is blocking the condensor
orface could be plugged or restricted causing hi pressure

Just picked her up and the a/c blew cold all the way home
They replaced the fan relay and the H/S wiring connector. Another $203.28!
Hope they got it right this time.
Thanks for the help,
