You never ever replace a fuse with a higher one or a piece of wire,it's a fire hazard.Check the oxygen sensor wire harness at the exhaust manifold then the front exhaust pipe then the drive shaft.

sidney is right on everything he said. most likely you have a short in your harness which os common on the exhaust and arround rge driveshaft or moving parts. look for frayed or bare wires.

And you can also check and see this way, firehazard or not. It not going to set on fire instantly by putting a higher amp fuse in it. You can use this to see if its the fuse itself or the wiring which is the fastest way to determine it.

thats a good way to damage components that were not not meant to operate at higher amps

Lol, and it's not really going to. You can tell me its bad for compnents blah blah blah. I know from experience. When something fails because I put a higher fuse in it to check, then I will take it as knowledge and will then admit its a stupid thing to do. As long as its not though, who cares.

Coo,

CMIIW, but I'm pretty sure that such low amp components would only be damaged if the voltage was higher than spec. Since a slightly larger capacity fuse would not affect voltage, then the components will be fine.

BTW, because of the above fact, I'm not afraid to jump-start my little motorcycle using a huge 12v. truck battery......works every time!
