Question about 2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
Have 15 amp fuse blowing means car wont start until i replace fuse can i use 20 amp fuse instead ? mercedes e 220 cdi
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.

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
