Fuse

355

Do not under any circumstance REPLACE a fuse with a higher amperage one you will likely end up with wires overheating and causing a fire read on... [A fuse is a device designed to protect an electrical system against damage. It protects against overheating, which can cause fires, and overloading, which can damage electronic components. Its primary function is to limit amperage. This is accomplished by either creating a section of higher resistance, or a section with a lower melting point than the rest of the electrical system. Using fuses ensures that the fuse fails before anything else. *Credit to: Rebecca Burdick]
