Fuses are normally rated in amps. If you're getting a buzzing noise, it isn't the fuse, it's a connection. You could have low voltage arcing in the fuse area if you don't have the exact size needed. You possibly opened the prongs that hold the fuse. A fusebox should never buzz, no matter what size fuses are in it. If you have any relay-fuses, they might be what you hear buzzing.

If anything it would be benneficial to your electronics...if you replace a 100W with an 80W your electronics will never even come close to being fried because the fuse will blow sooner and keep your electronics safer. jgwhomeequip is right that you have a likelyhood that you will be replacing it more often because it will blow sooner than a 100w would.

The good thing is that your electronics will be more protected and that is what really matters in the long run!

I would say so, certain things need certain watt fuses to operate properly. you might just want to replace it with the right one and see if that takes care of the buzzing. hope that helps, Good Luck!

It is not bad or good. You will continue to blow fuses until you put a 100w back into the system though. Which is bad cause you are doing things over and over

Trying to find the fuse for the power mirrors/cig.lighter


Subaru is funny about hiding their fuse boxes. Yes, they are sometimes located inside the vehicle behind sliding panels beside the steering column. Check both panels by your feet and under the dash by the steering column.

Where is the fusebox for the 2001 Subaru Outback? My window washer is not squirting water and not making any noise like it wants to work... so wanted to see if it was a fuse. Thanks you in advance!


Have you recently had any service work done? I only ask because I know when replacing spark plugs or doing other svc work it was common to disconnect the washer tank an pump to complete the service. so check an make sure the green connetor is conected to the pump on the side of the tank. And the fuse box is under the hood on the pass.side near the rear of the engine. let me know what you come up with!
