    80W to 100W main fuse?

    Ok so my mechanic blew my main fuse, which he said was 80W. All he had was a Forester, which has 100W fuses. He replaced my 80 with a 100.
    Do I change it? Can I hurt anything? What the dilli?

    THANKS

    Rick

    i would think if u had a large enough short in your system it would blow regardless...i have a lot of mismatched fuses in my fusebox but they always seem to blow properly when i short somthing.

    I'd switch back to 80, but I think you'll be fine until then.

    Do us all a favor: work on learning how to drive your car before adding more power. Pretty please.

    If it was an 80, replace it with an 80! most likely you will be fine, but why take a chance with potentially very expensive electronics for a $5 fuse.
