SOURCE: continuos blowing 15 amp fuse

what is that fuse for? you might get away with using a 20amp fuse but it is strongly not advised. there is most likely a short in one of the systems fed by that fuse causing it to blow repeatedly. this must be corrected. swapping out the 15 amp for a 20 amp may causes damage to another component being fed by that fuse

SOURCE: starter enabler fuse blows which means the starter motor does not work until fuse is changed

It is possible that the starer is pulling too much amperage- 1st thing you need to do is find out what if any other consumers are on that circuit, 2nd you need to find out how much amperage is being consumed by the starter. 3rd test you wires most likely if a wire problem it is the heavy hot wire on the starter or the back of the alternator has a loose retaining nut

SOURCE: continuos blowing 15 amp fuse

for a short fix it will work, but more than likely will blow that too eventually, it is that amp for a reason and anytime you are putting a bigger amp fuse in you are putting less protection into that part of the system which could result in the parts on that loop to be damaged.

Usually if the fuses blow constantly there is a short that is doing this, my advice is work out what that fuse is for and investigate that problem than trying to bypass it with heavier fuses.

2002 C-240. Why does fuse 52 burn open every time I try to start?


Check the battery cables for corrosion. Run a voltage drop test on each cable. You have a resistance problem. When a fuse blows, it means that the electrical flow is restricted and causing to much of an amperage draw. If your cables are good. Try to see what the amperae draw from your starter is. Bypass the ignition with a starter switch tool and test the amperage. If the amperage draw is excessive than 30 amps then the windings in te starter is bad. Take the starter out and have it tested if you dont want to do that work.

02 merc E220 CDi W211, when I turn key in ignition it will blow a 15 amp fuse in the engine compartment maybe 4 out off 10 starts, Tks in advance


Fuse blowing indicates some circuit is drawing too much current. Figure out what that fuse supplies and investigate that circuit.

LOCATION OF STARTER RELAY 1994 MERCEDES SL


I had a similar problem once with an Audi. I found that the relay in that case was in a plastic box about 5" x 7" under the hood. At first, I did not even realize it was able to be opened then a friend popped it open and there were several relays,( in my case the fuel pump relay) and switches inside.

You might look for a similar situation. Seems the Germans have a habit of hiding things in plain sight. Hope it helps.

1997 s320 mercedes benz fuse keep blowing


Mr, Washington,since you have blown fuse and even after you replace it still blown,it is better to find the fuse for what purpose is for on the car and try to get deeper check if you can or if you do not ,just ask the assistance from an expert electrician. Please do not attempt to use an over the specified amps. If you try or tried it is a risk to blow the circuit, ECU or the sensor which is covering it.

Why my mercedes ml270 brake fuse keep blowing?


If you added any accessories to your car,such as a dvd or car starter, then your circuit could be overloaded. Make sure you put the correct amperage fuse in your fusebox.

Has recently blown inline 15 amp starter motor


Hi
DO NOT put a bigger fuse in ,you need to find out why the fuse blew in the first place,it is unlikely to be the starter motor,it could be a bad connection,the mercedes all have problems with the ignition switch assembly this is more likely.
