Can I replace a fuse that keeps blowing with a larger one?

FusesNot only will using a fuse with more amps not solve the problem, it is likely to cause a whole host of other, more significant problems.  Fuses are present to protect the components of the electrical system.   Rather than destroying the circuit when there is a surge of power, the fuse blows to protect it.  If the fuse keeps blowing, it is an indication that there is a problem in the electrical system.  If you use a fuse with the wrong amperage, the fuse won’t blow as intended, damaging the circuit and resulting in a much larger repair bill.  Rather than risk blowing the circuit, take the car to a repair shop to determine what is causing the fuse to repeatedly blow.
