- Could a new starter be causing my tail light fuses to blow?
- How dangerous is it to replace a 10 amp fuse with a 15 amp?
I had my starter replaced last week, and shortly afterwards I noticed that my tail lights were out. Turns out the fuse for the tail lights is blowing every time I start the car. My mechanic said the tail lights aren’t connected to the starter, so that shouldn’t be causing the problem, but I wanted a second opinion. He repaired the blown fuse by replacing the 10 amp fuse with a 15 amp. The lights now work, but I’m reading a lot online that says that’s dangerous, so now I’m a bit nervous. Any advice would be appreciated!
