Here are some answers:

1. Make sure your amp does not have a higher amp rating then the fuse, For example, an 18 amp amplifier will blow an 15 amp fuse, so connect it to a 20 amp fuse

2. you have a connection issue, where something is shorting out

3. you are pushing the amp or car to it's limit with how loud you put it, and thus blowing it, fixed by getting a more powerful amp and a better fuse.

4. or there is something very wrong and cannot help you and you would have to bring it into a shop.

Will it hurt to replace the 20 amp fuse in my cigarette liter to a 25 amp it keeps blowing fuses

I am wondering if the fuse blows instantly or whether it lasts a while?

Fuse ratings for cars are usually mean or average values so a 20 amp fuse needs roughly 40 amps to cause it to instantly fail. I have not heard of a cigarette lighter needing that much current so I guess there is a fault that should be located and cured before you have a fire.
Maybe it is the element that is faulty...

I think fitting a 25 amp fuse would be slightly foolish...

What causes fuse #5c in my 1996 buick park ave. to keep blowing?

A fuse that keeps blowing is probably the result of a wire that is grounded unintentionally. This would be the result of an exposed power wire touching the engine or body and grounding out. This would cause an excessive power draw and blow the fuse. The other option is that the fuse was lower amps than the original one. check the fuse diagram to see if the amps match up.

All the lights work except the dash lights. The 5 amp fuses keep blowing and if I put a 15 amp it doesnt blow but no dash lights

DASH HAS A SHORT CIRCUIT.DASH NEED REPLACING BUT CHECK FOR SHORTS IN THE WIRES TO DASH.DONT PUT A LARGER AMP FUSE IN A CIRCUIT TO KEEP FROM BLOWING FUSE BECAUSE IF FUSE DONT BLOW WIRES GET HOT IN THE CIRCUIT THAT HAS A SHORT IN IT AND CAUSE A CAR FIRE.

Chevy silverado keeps blowing fuses

Your 20 amp fuse will not blow if glowplug wire shorts. each plug draws 15 amps which is 120 amps total.I think there are in line fuses for them. Try to wring out where each output from the fuse goes, disconnect all and reconnect one at a time till it blows.That should point to your problem process of illumination! Good Luck!!
