Since you have tried several fuses even stronger which you shouldn't and still blowing them, surely you have a serious suspension problem and I believe visit a qualified Citroen Garage for further inspection and repair if is required.

SOURCE: Can I use a 175 mega amp fuse to replace s 125 mega amp fuse???

NO. Do not run any fuse larger than is specified in any circuit. The specified number is the number of amps at which the wire changes from getting warm to MELTING. That number is just a few degrees short of GLOWING which is followed by CATCHING FIRE.

If you are in an emergency, you can usually safely go 5 or 10% temporarily. IE you need a 120a fuse, and t5he parts store only has 130. Thats less than 10%, its PROBABLY OK temporarily (Though youd be better off going low to 115 or 110! Safer!). If you put in too large a fuse and nothing is immediately wrong, youll think its fine. But when/if something does go wrong, you can destroy parts or the entire car can catch fire. The original sizes are what is designed to prevent this, please dont oversize fuses. The wires werent designed to handle it, and the components should need it. if a radio or a fuel pump or an alternator requires a 15a fuse, and that keeps blowing, but a 20 is OK...its really NOT OK! There is 33% more amperage and more heat flowing in those wires that wasnt designed to be handled. Something is already broken and is getting hot...its gonna break worse! And now with the oversize fuse, the wiring now is allowed to reach a current level way larger than it was designed to, that can light the wire ON FIRE without blowing the fuse! WHich means it will keep burning even after it starts!

Dont do it.

Where are the fuses for the lighter and accessory plugs


THE FUSE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IS #63 POWER POINT, INSTRUMENT PANEL, CIGAR LIGHTER FRONT AND IT IS A 20 AMP FUSE. #66 IS POWER POINT, C PILLER, REAR AND IS ALSO A 20 AMP FUSE BUT NOT FOR THE FRONT INSTRUMENT PANEL. #S 57 & 61 ARE LISTED AS NOT USED. THESE FUSES ARE LOCATED IN THE FUSE BOX IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT. THEY ARE ABOUT 3 ROWS OF FUSES FROM THE BACK OF THE COMPARTMENT COMING TOWARD THE FRONT. THEY WILL BE MINI FUSES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FUSE BOX AFTER THE FIRST 3 ROWS OF FUSES FROM THE BACK OF THE FUSE BOX TO THE FRONT WHERE YOU WOULD BE STANDING. THEY WILL HAVE 4 MINI FUSES TO THE RIGHT OF THEM AND 4 TO THE LEFT. IF THEY ARE LABLED THEY WILL BE 66 AND 63. YOU WANT 63 WHICH WILL BE CLOSEST TO YOU.
