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.

The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

first,I would like to ask you if you've had your suspension,shocks,and tire air pressure checked for irregularities;second, do the weight differences between the dredominating driver and right side passenger(s) differ significantly enough to produce consistant weight burden on passenger side suspension,or shocks-less than on the driver's side of your vehicle? If any of the above issues or mechanical irregularities exist,then those are most likely the reasons for your vehicle being lower on right than on left.have a mechanic thoroughly check the suspension for wear,damage to components,and /or bent parts,and if all is well, and those possible components do not need need replacing,then the next area of concern would likely be shock obsorbers,and if those do not need replacing then the problem may be that the vehicle's frame is bent or broken -depending on the type of frame your vehicle has..Process of elimination,while troubleshooting likely areas of concern may enable you to find cost effective,timely solutions to any vehicular problems. Best of luck.Steve Smith

Your system air condition is controled by a climate control.The panel will be at fault,You can pull a code using a scan tool that reads MBZ climate control,The solution for the fix is the climate control this is a module

Condensation from your a/c can be found dripping off of a car. Make certain it is water and not coolant/antifreeze. If it has a sweet smell (coolant/antifreeze) then you may have a leak.

You can't just swap around parts, you must perform actual electrical testing of the brake light circuit to do this use a Digital volt ohm meter (DVOM) to check and see if you have 12 volts at the socket when the brake is pressed, if you do show 12 volts then you need to check the ground wire connection, use an ohm meter and check the ground wire to the socket, should read less than 3 ohms from the ground to the chassis sheet metal, clean and repair as needed to restore ground if a problem is found. Brake lights can be on different fuses, one for left and one for right, check the owners manual for location of the brake light fuses, test them with an OHM meter, they can look ok and be open.
